AMD FirePro V4800 & FirePro V7800

While not exactly workstation-related, we tested the VDrift racing simulator across this spectrum of Evergreen-based FirePro graphics cards. The ordering of results was just as would expected from the entry level V3800 to ultra high-end V8800. However, the performance of the FirePro V7800 and V8800 were the same with VDrift at 1920 x 1080 as this OpenGL game was not able to stress those speedy graphics cards any harder. The FirePro V4800 was about 56% faster than the FirePro V3800 and the FirePro V7800 came in at about 19% faster than the FirePro V5800.

With Lightsmark there continued to be strong gains for the FirePro V4800 over the low entry-level FirePro V3800, but with the higher-end units there was not as significant differences as the GPUs were not the bottleneck for this OpenGL lighting benchmark.

Immediately when turning to the Unigine-based tests the higher-end FirePro models have much more rendering work to tend to. Even with the oldest Unigine Sanctuary demo, there was quite a difference between the V5800, V7800, and V8800 models. The FirePro V4800 was 65% faster than the V3800 and was on the brink of being usable with a frame-rate of 30 FPS. The FirePro V7800 churned out an average frame-rate of 84 FPS, which put it at being 77% faster than the FirePro V5800. The FirePro V8800 was 24% faster than the second-fastest V7800.

The results were similar with Unigine Tropics albeit the frame-rates had fallen as Tropics uses a later revision of the Unigine engine that is more demanding on the hardware.
