AMD FirePro W8000 And W9000 Review: GCN Goes Pro

SPECviewperf 11: SolidWorks

No Anti-Aliasing

2x Anti-Aliasing

4x Anti-Aliasing

8x Anti-Aliasing

Bottom Line

As we saw in the LightWave benchmark, the FirePro W-series cards are the clear performance winners. We can clearly see that these cards have raw performance on their side. However, AMD specifically talked to the challenge of optimizing for benchmarks versus real-world applications at a recent FirePro press event. Seemingly, it'd need to sink more resources into the former in order to improve performance in SPECviewperf.
