AMD Radeon E8950: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon E8950


AMD started Radeon E8950 sales 29 September 2015. This is GCN 3.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 8 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 192.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is MXM Module card attached via MXM-B (3.0) interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 95 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 24.31 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
