How well can the FirePro W9100 run games
AMD FirePro W9100
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The FirePro W9100 is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

This PC hardware performance game review for the FirePro W9100 graphics card, when running 2022 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 211 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the FirePro W9100 performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Dying Light 2 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We proceeded to look at Far Cry 6 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Dying Light 2 on the FirePro W9100 to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Far Cry 6 which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 0 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Grand Theft Auto VI where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 0 FPS. In summary we feel the FirePro W9100 running at 1440p is not the best choice to run modern games.

How many years will the FirePro W9100 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the FirePro W9100 in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the FirePro W9100? A good choice when looking to upgrade the FirePro W9100 would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB which meets 726 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 58% better performance. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300. This PC hardware upgrade performs 27% better and can run 305 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

FirePro W9100 Game Requirement Analysis

The AMD Firepro W9100 is an enthusiast workstation.
The FirePro W9100 comes with a full Hawaii Core with 2816 SPUs, 176 TMUS, and 64 ROPS, on a 512-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 930MHz, the memory clock operates 1250MHz. The impressive core wrenches over 5 TFLOPS of Single-Precision performance, and 2.67 TFLOPS of Double-Precision performance.
The Core stirs from the one used on Radeon R9 290X. Compared to it, its central unit is slightly under clocked but and so its gaming performance is lower than Radeon R9 290X and even more because the latter benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro W9100 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 3% and 7% worse than Radeon R9 290X.
