In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro V8700 are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon R7 240 2GB.

The R7 240 was released over three years more recently than the FirePro V8700, and so the R7 240 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the FirePro V8700 when running the latest games.

The R7 240 has 1024 MB more video memory than the FirePro V8700, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the FirePro V8700 has superior memory performance.

The FirePro V8700 has 80 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 240, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro V8700 is much better than the R7 240.

The Radeon R7 240 2GB has 320 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro V8700 has 800. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 240 is 212 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro V8700 is 390. The FirePro V8700 having 178 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro V8700 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R7 240.

The Radeon R7 240 2GB requires 30 Watts to run and the FirePro V8700 requires 151 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the R7 240 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the FirePro V8700. The FirePro V8700 requires 121 Watts more than the R7 240 to run. The difference is significant enough that the FirePro V8700 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R7 240.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewNote: This Graphics Card has 2 variants: one with DDR3 and another with GDDR5. This is the DDR3 Version.

Radeon R7 240 2GB offers a core codenamed Oland PRO and thus features 320 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 128-bit bus width of standard DDR3. While the central unit runs at 730MHz and goes up to 780MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 900MHz.
With a rated board TDP of 30W, it requires no extra power connectors.

Compared to Radeon R7 250, its performance is significantly lower (over 25% slower), especially at higher resolutions due to the limited memory bandwidth. Still, the TDP is relatively low and so this card may be used on low end systems and offer a reasonable upgrade, when compared to integrated graphics.
The FireGL line is designed for multimedia content creation programs, such as 3DS Max, mechanical engineering design software such as Solidworks, and civil engineering architectural software such as Chief Architect, whereas Radeon counterparts are suited towards video games. FireGL drivers were built with maximum image quality and pixel precision, with CAD specific functionalities such as the recently introduced AutoDetection Technology to tune the parameters inside the driver to achieve maximum performance for predefined list of software. However, because the drivers are also based on the Catalyst drivers made for the Radeon line, it makes them suitable for gaming, at the expense of probable compatibility issues with the very latest games due to the age of the drivers, with FireGL cards in theory pushing more data than their Radeon gaming counterparts
The ATI FireGL range of video cards, renamed to FirePro 3D in late 2008, is the series specifically for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DCC (Digital Content Creation) software, usually found in workstations.
