AMD FirePro W2100
The AMD FirePro W2100 is a professional graphics card for entry-level workstation PCs. It is based on the Mars chip (GCN 1.0), that can also be found in mobile consumer cards like the Radeon R7 M360. The chip integrates 384 shader cores, but the FirePro W2100 only offers 320 that are clocked at up to 680 MHz. Furthermore, the graphics card includes 2 GB DDR3 memory clocked at 900 MHz (3600 effective) using a 128 Bit memory interface (28.8 GB/s).
The card is intended for professional applications like CAD or 3D construction and offers certified drivers. In 3D games, the performance is slightly faster than a mobile Radeon R5 M335 (see for more gaming tests). Therefore, games of 2015 may only run fluently in lowest settings.
The 320 shader cores can also be used by OpenCL for computational tasks (as 5 compute units).
The power consumption is rated at 26 Watt (TDP) and therefore quite low for desktop graphics cards.
