AMD FirePro W7170M vs AMD FirePro W5170M

AMD FirePro W7170M

► remove from comparison AMD FirePro W7170M

The AMD FirePro W7170M is a high-end graphics card for mobile workstations. It is based on the same Tonga-chip as the AMD Radeon R9 M390X and seems to be similar clocked. Therefore, the card is based on the third generation of the GCN architecture (GCN 1.2) and supports DirectX 12 (FL 12_0). 

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.

The performance should be theoretically in the same ballpark as the Nvidia Quadro M4000M. In 3D games, the W7170M should perform similar to the R9 M390X consumer card.

The power consumption of the W7170M should be similar to the Quadro M5000M and M4000M cards and therefore in the 100 Watt region. That means it is suited only for large laptops with e.g. 17-inch screens.

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.
