In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition are massively better than the AMD FirePro W5000.

The FirePro W5000 was released less than a year after the GTX 670, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition and the FirePro W5000 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 670 has 89.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FirePro W5000, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 670 is much better than the FirePro W5000.

The GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition has 1344 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro W5000 has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 670 is 1317 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro W5000 is 412. The GTX 670 having 905 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 670 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the FirePro W5000.

The GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition requires 170 Watts to run and the FirePro W5000 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 670. The GTX 670 requires 95 Watts more than the FirePro W5000 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 670 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the FirePro W5000.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition is a renamed GeForce GTX 670 with no new features - not even a new cooling system. Its performance is exactly like the reference card.FirePro W5000 is a server GPU based on 28nm the GCN architecture.
It's based on the Pitcairn LE Core (technically a halved Tahiti LE Core) and therefore offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 32 ROPs on a 256-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 825MHz while the memory clock operates at 800MHZ.
Its gaming performance is expected to be only slightly above Radeon HD 7770, despite its higher count SPU, as the HD 7000 Series GPUs benefit from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro W5000 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 1% and 5% better than Radeon HD 7770.
