With SPECViewPerf's CATIA test, the FirePro V5800 was rather competitive compared to AMD's past higher-end offerings. In fact, the FirePro V5800 was faster than the FireGL V8600, but fell short of the FirePro V8700. The FirePro V5800 costs significantly less than any of the higher-end FireGL/FirePro V8XXX parts, yet its performance is quite competitive with the CATIA testing. The FirePro V3800 was also an admirable performer among the batch of graphics cards. The V3800 was even more than twice as fast as the consumer Radeon HD 5770 graphics card, even though this entry-level workstation card costs less.

The FirePro V5800 with the Maya test also performed remarkably. In fact, the V5800 did even better than the previous-generation FirePro V8700/V8750 graphics cards! The FirePro V8800 was about 8% faster than the FirePro V5800, but still the performance exhibited by the Juniper XT workstation card is rather impressive. While the FirePro V5800 and Radeon HD 5770 are based upon the same core, the performance of the workstation-oriented card was 3.13x that of the consumer equivalent with SPECViewPerf's Maya view-set.

With TCVIS, the FirePro V5800 fell just short of the AMD FirePro V8700, but still its performance is quite promising considering this mid-range graphics card costs much less than what the FirePro V8700 sells for these days. The FirePro V5800 was 40% faster than the FirePro V3800 while the FirePro V8800 was 23% faster than the FirePro V8500 (or the V8800 being 72% faster than the V3800).

With the Unigine Heaven test, the FirePro V3800 was by no means playable at 1920 x 1080 with its average frame-rate being just over five FPS. The FirePro V5800 graphics card was just under 30 FPS, while the Radeon HD 5770 packing a similar GPU core was at 34 FPS. While Unigine Heaven is more game than workstation oriented, this demanding OpenGL benchmark was 82% faster with the FirePro V8800 2GB graphics card than the V5800 1GB.
