AMD FirePro W8000: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro W8000

Summary

AMD started FirePro W8000 sales 14 June 2012 at a recommended price of $1,599. This is GCN 1.0 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 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 176 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 279 mm. Two 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 350 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 29.56 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
