AMD FirePro W4170M vs AMD FirePro W4190M

AMD FirePro W4170M

► remove AMD FirePro W4170M

The AMD FirePro W4170M is a professional workstation graphics card for laptops. It is based on the same Mars chip as the AMD Radeon HD 8790M and similarly clocked. Therefore, the GPU takes position in the mid-range of mobile laptop graphics cards as of 2013. Thanks to its optimized drivers, the W4170M offers a very good performance in professional 3D applications like CAD, while the gaming performance is similar to a Nvidia GeForce GT 750M.

The AMD FirePro M4100 series is based on the GCN architecture and therefore supports DirectX 11.2. The 384 shader cores can also be used with OpenCL as 6 compute units.

The AMD FirePro W4170M was first announced in the Dell Precision M2800 which is remarkably similar to the Dell Latitude E6540 (see our review) that offers a AMD Radeon HD 8790M.
