In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro S9150 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 275.

The FirePro S9150 has a 267 MHz higher core clock speed and 96 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 275. This results in the FirePro S9150 providing 107.8 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 FirePro S9150 has a 267 MHz higher core clock speed and 36 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 275. This results in the FirePro S9150 providing 39.9 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 FirePro S9150 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 275, and so the FirePro S9150 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GTX 275 when running the latest games.

The FirePro S9150 has 15488 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 275, 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 193 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 275, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro S9150 is massively better than the GeForce GTX 275.

The FirePro S9150 has 2816 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 275 has 240. However, the actual shader performance of the FirePro S9150 is 2534 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 275 is 349. The FirePro S9150 having 2185 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 GeForce GTX 275.

The FirePro S9150 transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 275. This means that the FirePro S9150 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 275.

The FirePro S9150 requires 235 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 275 requires 219 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 275, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the FirePro S9150. The FirePro S9150 requires 16 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 275 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the FirePro S9150 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GTX 275.

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.
GeForce GTX 275 is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

It equips a GPU Codenamed G200-105-B3 which has 10 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 240 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 28 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 633MHz.

The GPU accesses a 896MB frame buffer of GDDR3, through a 448-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1134MHz.

DirectX 10.0 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 219W, it requires at least a 550W PSU and it requires at least two 6-pin available connectors.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with the higher positioned GeForce GTX 280.
It is therefore even faster than the Fermi based GeForce GTX 460 768MB.
