AMD FirePro W5000™ is the most powerful midrange workstation graphics card ever created, delivering significantly better performance than the competing card against a wide set of measurements. For example, it has the ability to process up to 1.65 billion triangles per second, allowing a designer to easily interact and render 3D models, while the competing solution is only able to process up to 0.41 billion triangles per second (up to four times less). In addition, with double the graphics memory (2GB vs 1GB of the competitor) and a memory bandwidth that is up to 2.5 times faster than the competitor, moderately complex models will be no match for the AMD FirePro™ W5000. It's the ideal solution for professionals working with a broad range of applications, moderately complex models and datasets, and advanced visual effects.
Top Class Performance
The AMD FirePro W5000 is optimized and certified for major CAD and M&E applications delivering a TFLOP of single precision and 80 GFLOPs of double precision performance with outstanding reliability for the most demanding professional tasks. It uses Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture to efficiently balance-compute tasks with 3D workloads, enabling multi-tasking that is designed to optimize utilization and maximize performance. A multi-stream hardware H.264 HD encoder ensures power-efficient and quick video encoding.
AMD Eyefinity Technology with DisplayPort 1.2 Outputs
Industry-leading multi-display technology enables a highly immersive and unrivaled multi-tasking experience with innovative display capabilities supporting massive desktop workspaces, powered by a single AMD FirePro W5000 graphics card. The double DisplayPort 1.2 simultaneously sends multiple, independent audio streams and display content at resolutions beyond standard HD (maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160).
GeometryBoost allows the GPU to process geometry data at a rate of twice per clock cycle, which results in doubling the rate of primitive and vertex processing. Triangle rates increase two-fold relative to a GPU that does not possess GeometryBoost. The AMD FirePro W5000 delivers significantly higher triangle rates compared to its counterpart Nvidia Quadro 2000.
AMD PowerTune
AMD PowerTune is an intelligent system that performs real-time analysis of applications that utilize a GPU. In the event that an application is not making the most of the power available to the GPU, AMD PowerTune can improve that application's performance by raising the GPU's clock speed by up to 30% - automatically.
AMD ZeroCore Power
AMD ZeroCore Power technology leverages AMD's leadership in notebook power efficiency to grant your desktop GPUs the ability to power down when your monitor is off, also known as the "long idle state."

2 out of 5 eggsFirePro W5000 Reliability Problems

Pros: Good performance at a reasonable price point. Well suited for Solidworks 3D CAD or Adobe video editing applications like Premiere Pro and After Effects.

Cons: My FirePro W5000 graphics card worked well for the first month or so but I'm now having reliability problems. The graphics card is crashing often, especially when using a web browser like Firefox. Random color blocks often occur right before the user application window freezes or goes blank.

3 out of 5 eggsAutodesk won't use Crossfire

Pros: Decent low end Workstation Card

Cons: -- Fan on one of two cards purchased was rubbing/noisy at first until it warmed up but this has worked itself out.
-- Even though card is Autodesk Certified - no pre-sales info indicated that Crossfire will not work on Adesk products - IOwords, purchasing two cards will not give dual GPU calculating advantage, nor the equivalent of 2x 2Gb (4Gb) of RAM. Not sure if Nvidia/Quadro SLI is supported.

Other Thoughts: If you shop for Nvidia/Quadro watch out for the ones that are proprietary cards for HP (going under the PNY brand).

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Support

Pros: Card Worked great with AutoCAD

Cons: There was a problem with different colored blocks showing up on web browsers.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card on an online auction from on 01-16-2014 and about a month later I stated getting different color block on the screen with other programs. I contacted support and I had to return the card to Canada my own expense (cost me $45.25). The reason I purchased this card is because I was told that the service us awesome for the workstation video cards If there is an issue. You can get way more card for less and I recommend staying away from AMD and ATI (its who made the card). The service is poor and it will cost you more in the long run if there is even a small problem.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, But Inconsistent

Pros: * Low power consumption
* Fantastic color rendering
* Quiet

Cons: * Artifacts on screen

Other Thoughts: I'm using 2 of these in CrossFireX mode. I could not be happier with the performance. I have a fairly small case (BitFenix Prodigy M), and an Adaptec 6405 just above the second card. There isn't a lot of room so the second card gets toasty and everything but my cards are water cooled so there's little air flow. When the second card has been operating at significant capacity (Solidworks, Rhinoceros; turbine assembly) the card will overheat and artifacts are all over the screen. This is my fault for not getting the card proper air flow. I'm getting 2 EK FirePro water blocks to add to the water cooling setup for these cards and that should permanently resolve this issue.

A small number of artifacts do appear in normal operation of Windows 7 Pro (x64). By normal operation, I mean web browsing, watching videos, working with spreadsheets, etc. It is for this that I docked an egg. The cards are not stressed at this point and I expect operation to be flawless.

On the up side, the color depth is impressive. I find even the icons on my desktop to be smoother compared to my W530 using the same monitors (NEC EA244WMi x2). Oh, and Skyrim looks phenomenal and is completely fluid (no mouse lag!) even with large textures and complex ENB mods. There is some flicker in game though as artifacts become present and then are drawn over correctly.

2 out of 5 eggsmarginal performance

Pros: Works right out of the box. 30 bit color works great with Photoshop. Excellent with PTC Creo 2.0

Cons: My GTX 670 is faster in Solidworks 2013. I use Solidworks daily.
AutoCAD and Inventor are much slower with W5000, but no surprise there.

Other Thoughts: You need to know which software will benefit from a workstation card.

1 out of 5 eggsLOUD FAN

Pros: I haven't had the card long enough to list the pros.

Cons: LOUD fan! VERY LOUD fan.

Other Thoughts: This is my first professional graphics card and I cannot believe the fan noise for such an expensive item. It is definitely from the card. Its quiet when my system boots up and gets louder as the workload increases. I have a quiet system that I built myself and the buzzing from this fan drives me nuts.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: This is the best video card I have ever owned. Bar none.

In Maya I can rotate around a fully textured 100 million polygon scene at 20 fps!

The color fidelity is indescribably better than any consumer card. Nearly silent when fully loaded and doesn't even need a separate power cord.

This thing puts every consumer card to shame in professional apps. Even a GTX 680 looks gimp in comparison.

The right tool for the job.

Cons: Ur kidding right?........

Other Thoughts: I was a little leary about plunking down 450 for a video card. You get what you pay for.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 3d Cad Workstation Card

Pros: Very satisfactory workstation performance - great bang for the buck! Up to date connectivity. Multi-monitor support. Optimization for PTC Creo Parametric 3D Cad, transparency rendering. 120Mhz refresh rate.

Cons: None. It does what it does very well. I have no idea about gaming performance - don't care - but I suspect it is very competative.

Other Thoughts: I chose this graphics card for my new 3D CAD workstation running PTC Creo 2.0 Parametric under Win 7 Ultimate (system details below). What can I say other than it works great, very fluid model manipulation - I can grab a complex 3d model (aircraft) with my mouse and spin it wildly without any indication of lag or hesitation - renders at max settings in seconds - can find no cons for my application as this card gives me no reason to think about graphics performance.

For what it is worth, Windows Performance Monitor currently shows that my most complex Creo model currently consumes about half of the installed 32Gigs RAM.

WEI for both Aero and 3D Buisiness & Gaming Graphics = 7.7.

System Details:

ASUS P9X79WS Motherboard
Xeon E5-1620 Processor (Not Currently Overclocked)
Kingston 32Gig DDR3 1600 ECC (4X8g) RAM
Intel 520 series SSD
AMD W5000 Graphics
Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 Case
Corsair HX750 PSU
Intel Liquid Cooling Solution
