In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 250X are marginally better than the AMD FirePro W5000.

The Radeon R7 250X was released over a year more recently than the FirePro W5000, and so the Radeon R7 250X 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 250X 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 30.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R7 250X, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro W5000 is noticeably better than the Radeon R7 250X.

The Radeon R7 250X has 640 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro W5000 has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 250X is 517 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro W5000 is 412. The Radeon R7 250X having 105 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R7 250X delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the FirePro W5000.

The Radeon R7 250X requires 80 Watts to run and the FirePro W5000 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon R7 250X. The Radeon R7 250X requires 5 Watts more than the FirePro W5000 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R7 250X to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the FirePro W5000.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R7 250X is a fast-middle-class Graphics Card based on the Graphics Core Next architecture. It offers the Cape Verde XT GPU.
The Cape Verde XT Core is a GCN 1.1 GPU and was first seen on Radeon HD 7770 and then re-used in the OEM only Radeon HD 8760.
It offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs, on a 128-bits memory interface of fast GDDR5.
Radeon R7 250X comes clocked at 950MHz (though there might be some 1GHz versions) and has its operating memory clock set at 1125MHz. The rated TDP board is of 80W and the release price around $99.
This card should come in 1GB and 2GB versions, though both will offer the same performance.
Its performance has proven to be exactly like Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition (if clocked at 1GHz) and thus this card is not suited for 1080p gaming but it can handle 720p with ease. The 950MHz versions will be around 3% slower.
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.
