How well can the FirePro W9100 run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The FirePro W9100 GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

Lets look at the FirePro W9100 game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2019. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 316 games in todays list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the FirePro W9100 performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Need For Speed Heat and saw it deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 71 FPS, Medium: 56 FPS, High: 38 FPS and Ultra: 27 FPS. We proceeded to look at Diablo 4 to see how that compared and predict that it will return a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the FirePro W9100 to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Need For Speed Heat where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 54 FPS, Medium: 43 FPS, High: 29 FPS and Ultra: 21 FPS. We added Diablo 4 to our research and predict it will be weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Borderlands 3 which got 13 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the FirePro W9100 running at 1440p is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

How many years will the FirePro W9100 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the FirePro W9100 in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the FirePro W9100? A good choice when looking to upgrade the FirePro W9100 would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which meets 897 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 92% better performance. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the FirePro W9100 would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 685 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 44% better performance.

FirePro W9100 Game Requirement Analysis

The AMD Firepro W9100 is an enthusiast workstation.
The FirePro W9100 comes with a full Hawaii Core with 2816 SPUs, 176 TMUS, and 64 ROPS, on a 512-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 930MHz, the memory clock operates 1250MHz.
The impressive core wrenches over 5 TFLOPS of Single-Precision performance, and 2.67 TFLOPS of Double-Precision performance.
The Core stirs from the one used on Radeon R9 290X. Compared to it, its central unit is slightly under clocked but and so its gaming performance is lower than Radeon R9 290X and even more because the latter benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro W9100 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 3% and 7% worse than Radeon R9 290X.

Generally For programs and applications that require a large amount of video memory that you can not get form an average consumer product or on board graphics. If you notice this card's most obvious feature is its ram its a high amount and a decent speed. This is for rendering say an HD video. Now A professional needs things rendered quickly in a timely matter so they can review that content, and make edits when needed to X product.
