AMD FirePro W5100: specs and benchmarks

VS

Summary

AMD started FirePro W5100 sales 31 March 2014. This is a GCN 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 96 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 171 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 50 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 7.77% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
