AMD FirePro W5100: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro W5100

Summary

AMD started FirePro W5100 sales 31 March 2014. This is GCN 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 4096 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 1-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 12.32 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
