In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 260 are noticeably better than the AMD FirePro W5000.

The Radeon R7 260 was released over a year more recently than the FirePro W5000, and so the Radeon R7 260 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the FirePro W5000.

The Radeon R7 260 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 FirePro W5000 has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R7 260, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro W5000 is marginally better than the Radeon R7 260.

Both the Radeon R7 260 and the FirePro W5000 have 768 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the Radeon R7 260 is 653 and by the FirePro W5000 is 412. Knowing that the shader performance of the Radeon R7 260 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The Radeon R7 260 requires 95 Watts to run and the FirePro W5000 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon R7 260. The Radeon R7 260 requires 20 Watts more than the FirePro W5000 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R7 260 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the FirePro W5000.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 260 is a fast-middle-class graphics card based on the Second Revision of the GCN architecture. It packs a Core codenamed Bonaire PRO.
The Bonaire PRO is a cut-down version of the Bonaire XT Core used on Radeon HD 7790. It comes with 14 Compute Units and thus offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs. This, on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. Compared to the Bonaire XT Core, it has support for DirectX 11.2 and has support for AMD's TrueAudio Technology.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 10% slower than Radeon HD 7790 and a little over that when taking Radeon R7 260X as a reference.
The card proves to be very inefficient seeing as it has a higher rated TDP board than Radeon HD 7790 and its release price of $109 makes Radeon HD 7850 a better option.
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.
