For our power testing, we used AIDA64 to stress the AMD Radeon PRO WX 4100, then HWiNFO to monitor power use and temperatures.
After the stress test has ramped up the AMD Radeon PRO WX 4100 we see it tops out at 35Watts under full load and 6Watts at idle. Benchmark numbers may be lower, but power is also much lower. That is why OEMs are still using this card across a number of servers and workstations.
Going alongside power is cooling. The AMD Radeon PRO WX 4100 is a blower-style cooler which exhausts hot air out of the rear of the chassis which is good for overall system cooling.
Temperatures for the AMD Radeon PRO WX 4100 run at 78C which gets warm when under full loads, at idle we saw 33C. On the other hand, these GPUs were meant to run mostly idle providing display outputs.
The AMD Radeon PRO WX 4100 is several years old by now but still handles small form factor workstation tasks just fine if you do not need CUDA for your workloads. A big plus for this card is its 4x Mini-DisplayPorts that allow one to set up 4x 4K displays. This is useful for HFT users, digital signage, and others that require a number of displays to monitor various tasks.
What is clear is that this GPU is not designed for heavy compute tasks. If you are on a server or workstation configurator and want AMD Radeon powered GPU compute an AMD Radeon Pro WX 8200 is an example of a better option. We still felt it was important to do the review to show our readers where this falls against modern GPUs.
Overall the AMD Radeon PRO WX 4100 is a good choice for SFF workstations and users who use entry-level 2D/3D CAD applications. It is not our choice for high-performance, but that is precisely the design point of the card.
