Gaming Performance Comparison
In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro W9000 are massively better than the .
The has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.
The FirePro W9000 was released over three years more recently than the , and so the FirePro W9000 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the when running the latest games.
The FirePro W9000 has 6144 MB video memory, but the does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.
The FirePro W9000 has 2048 Shader Processing Units but the does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.
The FirePro W9000 requires 274 Watts to run but there is no entry for the . We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the FirePro W9000.

|Mini Review||FirePro W9000 is a server GPU based on the 28nm GCN architecture. |
It's based on the Tahiti XT Core (same used on 7970) and therefore offers 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs on a 384-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 975MHz while the memory clock operates at 1375MHZ.
Compared to Radeon HD 7970, its central unit is slightly higher clocked but overall its gaming performance is lower than Radeon HD 7970 because Radeon HD 7970 benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro W9000 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 1% and 3% worse than Radeon HD 7970.
