AMD FirePro S10000
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the FirePro S10000 is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.

DirectX 11 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

What FPS performance can the FirePro S10000 get on latest AAA 2021 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 110.

A FirePro S10000 card at 1080p is predicted to see a weak frame rate when running Star Citizen on Ultra - 23 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on FIFA 22 which is 56 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Forza Horizon 5 is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a playable 31 FPS.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the FirePro S10000 will run the upcoming game Star Citizen to a weak performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 45 FPS, Medium: 36 FPS, High: 24 FPS and Ultra: 17 FPS. Another game researched was FIFA 22 with predictions of L: 113FPS, M: 89FPS, H: 60FPS, U: 43FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Forza Horizon 5, wih estimates revealing L: 61FPS, M: 48FPS, H: 33FPS, U: 23FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the FirePro S10000 is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.

How many years will the FirePro S10000 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the FirePro S10000 in your PC? Its time to start researching your next graphics card upgrade as the FirePro S10000 is failing to meet modern day gaming system requirements. A gpu AAA lifespan of around 6-12 months.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the FirePro S10000? A good choice when looking to upgrade the FirePro S10000 would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 634 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 76% better performance. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, which has 46% better performance and can run 312 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

FirePro S10000 Game Requirement Analysis

FirePro S10000 is a server GFX based on the 28nm GCN architecture.
It's based on 2 Tahiti PRO Cores (same used on 7950) and therefore offers 1792 Shader Processing Units, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs on a 384-bit interface of fast GDDR5, per core. The central unit is clocked 825MHz while the memory clock operates at 1250MHZ.
Its gaming performance should be identical to a crossfire solution of 2 Radeon HD 7950 but lower as it does not benefit from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential.
FirePro S10000 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its gaming performance to be between 3% and 10% worse than Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire.
