AMD FirePro W5000: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro W5000

Summary

AMD started FirePro W5000 sales 7 August 2012 at a recommended price of $599. This is GCN 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 3.2 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 102.4 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 183 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 350 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 10.71 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN V.
