AMD FirePro W8100: specs and benchmarks
AMD started FirePro W8100 sales 23 June 2014. This is GCN 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 8 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 5 GHz are supplied, and together with 512 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 320 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is dual-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 750 Watt.
It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 27.34 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
Of FirePro W8100's architecture, market type and release date.
FirePro W8100's general performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU base clock, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of FirePro W8100's performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider its benchmark and gaming test results.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on FirePro W8100's compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility).
Parameters of memory installed on FirePro W8100: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors don't have dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on FirePro W8100. As a rule, this section is relevant only for desktop reference video cards, since for notebook ones the availability of certain video outputs depends on the laptop model.
APIs supported by FirePro W8100, sometimes including their particular versions.
Non-gaming benchmark performance of FirePro W8100. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
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.
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.
Cryptocurrency mining performance of FirePro W8100. Usually measured in megahashes per second.
Let's see how good FirePro W8100 is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
This video card matches 97% minimum and 89% recommended requirements of all games known to us.
Overall FirePro W8100 performance compared to nearest competitors among server video cards.
We believe that the nearest equivalent to FirePro W8100 from NVIDIA is Quadro P2000, which is nearly equal in speed and higher by 1 position in our rating.
