AMD FireStream 9250: specs and benchmarks

AMD FireStream 9250

Summary

AMD started FireStream 9250 sales 16 June 2008. This is TeraScale architecture desktop card based on 55 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 1 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.99 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 63.55 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 150 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.54 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
