In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro S9150 are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 7770 Sapphire GHz OC Edition.

The HD 7770 has a 250 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro S9150, but the FirePro S9150 has 136 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 7770. As a result, the FirePro S9150 exhibits a 112.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the HD 7770. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD 7770 has a 250 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro S9150, but the FirePro S9150 has 48 more Render Output Units than the HD 7770. As a result, the FirePro S9150 exhibits a 39.2 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the HD 7770. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The FirePro S9150 was released over a year more recently than the HD 7770, and so the FirePro S9150 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 7770.

The FirePro S9150 has 15360 MB more video memory than the HD 7770, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the FirePro S9150 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FirePro S9150 has 240 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 7770, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro S9150 is massively better than the HD 7770.

The FirePro S9150 has 2816 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7770 Sapphire GHz OC Edition has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the FirePro S9150 is 2534 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7770 is 626. The FirePro S9150 having 1908 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro S9150 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the HD 7770.

The FirePro S9150 requires 235 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7770 Sapphire GHz OC Edition requires 80 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the HD 7770, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the FirePro S9150. The FirePro S9150 requires 155 Watts more than the HD 7770 to run. The difference is significant enough that the FirePro S9150 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD 7770.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewFirePro S9150 is a server GPU based on the 28nm GCN architecture.

It's based on the Hawaii XT Core (same used on Radeon R9 290X) and therefore offers 2816 Shader Processing Units, 176 TMUs and 64 ROPs on a 512-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 900MHz while the memory clock operates at 1250MHZ.

Compared to Radeon R9 290X, its central unit is slightly lower and overall its gaming performance is lower than Radeon R9 290X because the latter benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro S9150 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 10% and 15% worse than Radeon R9 290X.
Radeon HD 7770 Sapphire GHz OC Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class Radeon HD 7770. See the standard version for more information about it.
The differences include increased memory and core clocks, from 1125MHz to 1250MHz and from 1000MHz to 1150MHz, respectively. A new quiet and efficient cooling system is also available.
Benchmarks indicate a 9,5% performance boost when compared to the standard Radeon HD 7770.
Benchmarks indicate that the most demanding games (e.g. Metro 2033) will run at the highest settings but not at extreme resolutions (due to the limited memory size).
