In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro W2100 are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 3800 series.

The HD 3800 has no core clock speed set, so any comparison between Texture and Pixel Fill Rates is not currently possible.

The FirePro W2100 was released over three years more recently than the HD 3800, and so the FirePro W2100 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 3800 when running the latest games.

The FirePro W2100 has 1536 MB more video memory than the HD 3800, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the FirePro W2100 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FirePro W2100 has 28.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 3800, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro W2100 is slightly better than the HD 3800.

Both the FirePro W2100 and the Radeon HD 3800 series have 320 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the FirePro W2100 is 185 and by the HD 3800 is 0. Knowing that the shader performance of the FirePro W2100 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The FirePro W2100 transistor size technology is 27 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 3800. This means that the FirePro W2100 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 3800.

The FirePro W2100 requires 26 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 3800 series. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the FirePro W2100.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
FirePro W2100 is a Professional Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the GCN Architecture.

The GCN 1.1 Release adds support for AMD's TrueAudio Technology which does calculations of audio effects "better" than the CPU and further improves the Powertune Technology.

It equips a GPU Codenamed Oland PRO which has 5 Compute Units activated and thus offers 320 Shader Processing Units, 20 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Operates at 630MHz and goes up to 680MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The memory clock operates at 900MHz.

DirectX 11.2 Support (11.1 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, PowerTune Technology, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, HD3D, ZeroCore Power and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 26W, it requires at least a 350W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

FirePro W2100 has a GPU configuration similar to Radeon R7 240 2GB. However, it is under-clocked and does not benefit from the game optimizations through its drivers.
As a result, it may perform over 15% worse than Radeon R7 240 2GB.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Intel Core i3/AMD FX-4100) and 4GB of RAM for a system with FirePro W2100.
Radeon HD 3800 Series is not a GPU but instead a combination between Radeon HD 3830, Radeon HD 3850 and Radeon HD 3870 whose rank is a balance between the three and that exists for System Requirements purposes only.
