AMD FirePro W600: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro W600

Summary

AMD started FirePro W600 sales 13 June 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 4 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 64 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 163 mm. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 75 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 7.11 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
