AMD FirePro W8000: specs and benchmarks

AMD FirePro W8000


AMD started FirePro W8000 sales 14 June 2012 at a recommended price of 1,599 USD. This is GCN 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 4096 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 29.16 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
