Technical specs

General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.

Advantages of NVIDIA GRID A100B

Much newer (14 May 2020 vs 7 August 2014)

Wider memory bus (6144 vs 512 bit)

More pipelines (6912 vs 2816)

Finer manufacturing process technology (7 vs 28 nm)

Lower power consumption (400W vs 750W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.

Advantages of AMD FirePro S9150

Higher memory bandwidth (320 vs 1 GB/s)
