AMD Radeon Pro W5700 GPU Review


AMD Radeon Pro W5700 Specifications

Here are the Radeon Pro W5700 key specs:

The AMD Radeon Pro W5700 is rated for TDP of 205W, which is considerably more than the Quadro RTX 4000 at TDP 160W. With a high TDP, the need for a dual-slot blower cooler is required.

We can also see that this GPU uses PCIe Gen4 and is one of the first GPUs to do so. That will be a more common feature moving forward.

The memory is GDDR6, not HBM2. This lowers cost. Another cost-saving trade-off is the lack of ECC memory support. For many in the market, ECC memory support is a must-have feature.

Testing the AMD Radeon Pro W5700

Here is our test configuration:

Here is the obligatory GPU-Z shot of the Radeon Pro W5700:

GPU-Z shows the primary stats of our testing the Radeon Pro W5700 and noted that GPU and Memory Clocks do not show up correctly with GPUz. The GPU clocks in at 1,183 MHz and can boost up to 1,930 MHz. Pixel Fillrates run at 30.1 GPixels/s, and Texture Fillrate comes in at 270.7 GTexel/s, while memory runs at 1,750 MHz.

Let us move on and start our testing with computing-related benchmarks.


  1. “AMD intends for the Pro W5700 to compete somewhere between the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 and Quadro RTX 5000.”

    Where are the results of the Quadro RTX 4000?, did I overlook them?

  2. Does this card have so-called Navi reset bug? If you passthrough it to VM in hypervisor you won’t be able to reuse card after VM restarts. It was the case with 5500XT (Navi as well). While it’s ok with consumer card it’s big miss with workstation card IMHO. Previous cards (WX2100) work with pass-through perfectly fine.

  3. If the Arion benchmark requires CUDA for GPU, and CUDA is not available on the W5700,
    then how was the Arion benchmark run on the W5700 ?
    Maybe the Arion benchmark run measured Threadripper 3960x performance, not W5700 performance?
