3xs Approved Mid Range
Product Overview AMD FirePro W5000™ is the most powerful midrange workstation graphics card ever created, delivering significantly better performance than the competing card against a wide set of measurements.1 For example, it has the ability to process up to 1.65 billion triangles per second, allowing a designer to easily interact and render 3D models, while the competing solution is only able to process up to 0.41 billion triangles per second (up to 4 times less).2 In addition, with double the graphics memory (2GB vs 1GB of the competitor) and a memory bandwidth that is up to 2.5 times faster than the competitor, moderately complex models will be no match for the AMD FirePro™ W5000.3 It’s the ideal solution for professionals working with a broad range of applications, moderately complex models and datasets and advanced visual effects.

• Drive up to four displays with AMD Eyefinity technology, enabling users to multitask across multiple applications with ease
• Offers unmatched application responsiveness, features double the memory and up to 2.5 times more memory bandwidth than the competing midrange solution
• Support for DisplayPort 1.2, enabling resolutions well beyond standard HD and compatibility with multistream transport hubs that allow AMD FirePro™ W5000 to power up to six displays
• Optimizations and certifications for many major CAD/CAE and media and entertainment applications
• Intelligent power saving and monitoring technologies for higher performance

Data Sheet
Features AMD Eyefinity Technology
Industry-leading multidisplay technology enabling highly immersive and unrivaled multitasking experience across up to four displays, powered by a single AMD FirePro™ W5000 graphics card.4

Allows the GPU to process geometry data at a rate of twice per clock cycle resulting is a doubling in the rate of primitive and vertex processing. Triangle rates increase two-fold relative to a GPU that does not possess GeometryBoost.

DisplayPort 1.2
Simultaneously output multiple, independent audio streams and display content at resolutions beyond standard HD (maximum resolution of 4096x2160).

Energy Efficient Design
AMD PowerTune technology dynamically optimizes GPU power usage and AMD ZeroCore Power technology significantly reduces power consumption at idle.5

AMD ZeroCore Power
AMD ZeroCore Power technology leverages AMD's leadership in notebook power efficiency to grant our desktop GPUs the ability to power down when your monitor is off, also known as the "long idle state."

AMD PowerTune
AMD PowerTune is an intelligent system that performs real-time analysis of applications that utilize a GPU. In the event that an application is not making the most of the power available to the GPU, AMD PowerTune can improve that application's performance by raising the GPU's clock speed by up to 30 percent - automatically.

Video Codec Engine (VCE)
A multistream hardware H.264 HD encoder, for power efficient and quick video encoding.

Modern desktop computers and notebooks comprise of a CPU, motherboard, graphics, storage, and, usually an optical drive. Computers have a number of ports and sockets that enable the user to plug-in various peripherals such as a printer, USB mouse, or, perhaps most importantly of all, an Internet connection.

If you’re the least bit interested in graphics cards, we’re sure that you’ve heard the terms SLI and CrossFire bandied about recently. Touted as a means of achieving maximum 3D performance by, effectively, using two or more graphics cards in tandem, multi-GPU technology is here to stay. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look SLI and CrossFire; the two competing multi-GPU solutions from NVIDIA and ATI Technologies, respectively.

Explaining how a modern GPU works in completeness would take a book. Or two. Per class of chip. Per vendor. They’re extraordinarily complex pieces of engineering and production, and the end result contains more transistors than multiple modern x86 processors.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Impressive stuff. Ok so i got this back in march 2014 because I was looking at getting a card which could run programs as reliably and quickly as possible. I know i could have bought a gaming spec nvidia/amd card with more memory but i wanted something that would work with more technical programs properly. so i took the plunge... I've got this running in my pc coupled with my 10 bit WQHD monitor and after using it for the last few months, i have to say I'm quite impressed. Its fantastic for running programs in Adobes' cc suite and Autodesk Maya / inventor renders with it pretty well. The best thing about this guy for me is that still have the potential to hook up another PA279Q monitor to it (hopefully i'll be giving that a good go in the next few months :D) Long story short, its a decent card for people looking to build a more serious workstation but without breaking the bank. 25 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by terrible product , avoid I had tried AMD about 6 years ago & it was a bad experience, so when my quadro nvidia died & I needed a replacement while it was repaired I thought for £400 , a "pro" graphics card , has to be worth a go! it was a approved card for autodesk products. And 6 years had passed, surely they'd sorted basic issues like drivers! What a mistake! drivers were appalling , within 5 mins of installing card & drivers my machine had crashed twice. It kept doing this for several days at which point I contacted a friend who had contacts at AMD & they told me to try a few obvious things , but to no avail the drivers kept crashing constantly. in the end I bought a nvidia geforce GTX 760 & its blinding & £150 less than the W5000. dont buy AMD, stick with Nvidia their drivers are a million times better , at least for DCC software , i dont play games on the PC , maybe AMD rocks for games? But Scan offered to take it back & I have bought lots from scan & would recommend them as a company for fast service & good customer service too after the purchase. 07 February 2014
