In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro W2100 are significantly better than the Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop.

The FirePro W2100 has a 280 MHz higher core clock speed and 12 more Texture Mapping Units than the Graphics 510. This results in the FirePro W2100 providing 9.8 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 W2100 has a 280 MHz higher core clock speed and 4 more Render Output Units than the Graphics 510. This results in the FirePro W2100 providing 3.6 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 Graphics 510 was released over a year more recently than the FirePro W2100, and so the Graphics 510 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the FirePro W2100.

The FirePro W2100 has 2048 MB video memory, but the Graphics 510 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop has 12 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro W2100 has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 510 is 101 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro W2100 is 185. The FirePro W2100 having 84 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro W2100 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Graphics 510.

The Graphics 510 transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the FirePro W2100. This means that the Graphics 510 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the FirePro W2100.

The HD Graphics 510 Desktop requires 47 Watts to run and the FirePro W2100 requires 26 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 510 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the FirePro W2100. The Graphics 510 requires 21 Watts more than the FirePro W2100 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Graphics 510 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the FirePro W2100.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Skylake Processors.

The Skylake Core includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4. Additionally, it also supports DDR4 Memory.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GT1 which offers 12 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on the at which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 1067MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with the older Intel HD Graphics 4400.

System Suggestions
Intel HD Graphics 510 Desktop is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend a Decent Processor and 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
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.
