How well can the FirePro S9150 run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The FirePro S9150 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. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

Here is a performance review on how capable the FirePro S9150 is at running the more popular games of 2019. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. The FirePro S9150 can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 291 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

A FirePro S9150 card at 1080p is seeing a strong frame rate when running FIFA 20 on Ultra - 98 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip which is 23 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a weak 0 FPS.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the FirePro S9150 to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at FIFA 20 where it was good. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 167 FPS, Medium: 140 FPS, High: 102 FPS and Ultra: 74 FPS. We added Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip to our tests and saw it was weak with a 18 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order leading us to predict 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the FirePro S9150 we get the impression that it is a reasonable choice at this screen size. You can always tweak modern game graphics settings to help you get a better High graphics setting experience at 1440p.

How many years will the FirePro S9150 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the FirePro S9150 in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the FirePro S9150? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 103% better and can meet 900 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 692 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 52% increased graphics performance.

FirePro S9150 Game Requirement Analysis

FirePro 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.
