AMD Radeon Pro W5700 GPU Review


AMD Radeon Pro W5700 Rendering Related Benchmarks

Next, we wanted to get a sense of the rendering performance of the Radeon Pro W5700.

Arion v2.5

Arion Benchmark is a standalone render benchmark based on the commercially available Arion render software from RandomControl. The benchmark is GPU-accelerated using NVIDIA CUDA. However, it is unique in that it can run on both NVIDIA GPUs and CPUs.

Download the Arion Benchmark from here. First-time users will have to register to download the benchmark.

This is not the best result for the Radeon Pro W5700.

MAXON Cinema4D 3D

ProRender is an OpenCL based GPU renderer which is available in MAXON’s Cinema4D 3D animation software. A fully functional 42-day trial version is available for downloaded from the MAXON website here. Note: Even after expiration, the trial can still be used to measure render times.

Again we see the Radeon Pro W5700 giving a lackluster performance result comparing to NVIDIA cards here.

Next, we will have 3DMark results before moving onto power consumption, thermals, and our final thoughts.


  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?
