AMD FirePro W5170M vs AMD FirePro W4190M

AMD FirePro W5170M

► remove from comparison 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.

AMD FirePro W4190M

► remove from comparison AMD FirePro W4190M

The AMD FirePro W4190M is a professional workstation graphics card for laptops. It is based on the same Mars chip as the AMD Radeon HD 8790M and AMD FirePro W4170M and similarly clocked. Therefore, the GPU takes position in the lower mid-range of mobile laptop graphics cards as of 2015. Thanks to its optimized drivers, the W4190M offers a very good performance in professional 3D applications like CAD, while the gaming performance is similar to a Nvidia GeForce 840M / Radeon HD 8790M.

The AMD FirePro M4100 series is based on the GCN architecture and therefore supports DirectX 12. The 384 shader cores can also be used with OpenCL as 6 compute units.
