AMD FirePro W6150M: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro W6150M

Summary

AMD started FirePro W6150M sales 12 November 2015. This is GCN 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5.5 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 88 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 2.11 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.

Overall score

This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.

2.11

Passmark

This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
