In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition are massively better than the AMD FirePro V3900.

The HD 7850 has a 210 MHz higher core clock speed and 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the FirePro V3900. This results in the HD 7850 providing 39.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD 7850 has a 210 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Render Output Units than the FirePro V3900. This results in the HD 7850 providing 22.3 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The HD 7850 was released less than a year after the FirePro V3900, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The FirePro V3900 and the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The HD 7850 has 131.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FirePro V3900, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7850 is massively better than the FirePro V3900.

The FirePro V3900 has 480 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the FirePro V3900 is 203 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7850 is 749. The HD 7850 having 546 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7850 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the FirePro V3900.

The HD 7850 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the FirePro V3900. This means that the HD 7850 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the FirePro V3900.

The FirePro V3900 requires 75 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the FirePro V3900 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 7850. The HD 7850 has been recommended a PSU with 150 Watts more than the FirePro V3900. The difference is significant enough that the HD 7850 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the FirePro V3900.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewAMD FirePro� V3900 professional graphics enables an exceptional user experience by delivering features and reliability designed to help boost the productivity of professionals working with low to moderate-complexity designsRadeon HD 7850 XFX Core Edition is a special edition of the powerful Radeon HD 7850. See the standard version for more information about it.
This edition features a special cooling system that allows twice as much heat dissipation when compared to the reference AMD cooling system but its performance is still the same, as there's no over-clocking out of the box.
