How well can the FirePro S9150 run games
AMD FirePro S9150
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The FirePro S9150 is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

Lets look at the FirePro S9150 game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2021. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 202 games in the list.

A FirePro S9150 card at 1080p is seeing a weak frame rate when running Resident Evil 8 on Ultra - 0 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Battlefield 2042 which is 0 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Star Citizen is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a playable 29 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Resident Evil 8 which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we have Battlefield 2042 running on FirePro S9150 which is predicted to get L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Star Citizen is predicted to get L: 57FPS, M: 45FPS, H: 30FPS, U: 22FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the FirePro S9150 is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

How many years will the FirePro S9150 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the FirePro S9150 in your PC? There is around 6-12 months of top end gaming left in this card, at which point its graphics card replacement time, assuming the FirePro S9150 is part of your PC gaming machine.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the FirePro S9150? A great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 62% better performance and can run 632 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the FirePro S9150 is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, which is 34% more powerful and can run 312 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

FirePro S9150 Game Requirement Analysis

FirePro S9150 is a server GPU based on the 28nm GCN architecture.

It's based on the Hawaii XT Core (same used on Radeon R9 290X) and therefore offers 2816 Shader Processing Units, 176 TMUs and 64 ROPs on a 512-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 900MHz while the memory clock operates at 1250MHZ.

Compared to Radeon R9 290X, its central unit is slightly lower and overall its gaming performance is lower than Radeon R9 290X because the latter benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro S9150 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 10% and 15% worse than Radeon R9 290X.
