AMD FirePro W5170M

AMD FirePro W5170M

The AMD FirePro W5170M is a high-end graphics card for mobile workstations. It is based on the same chip as the AMD Radeon R9 M370X, but it is higher clocked.

The FirePro series offers certified drivers that are optimized for stability and performance in professional applications like CAD or DCC. OpenGL performance, for example, should be significantly better compared to GeForce graphics cards of similar specifications.
