AMD started Radeon E8950 sales 29 September 2015. This is a desktop graphics card based on a GCN 3.0 architecture and made with 28 nm manufacturing process. It is primarily aimed at gamer market. 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 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
of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
