The FirePro V5900 was a professional graphics card by AMD, launched in May 2011. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the Cayman graphics processor, in its Cayman LE WS variant, the card supports DirectX 11.2. The Cayman graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 389 mm² and 2,640 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked Radeon HD 6970, which uses the same GPU but has all 1536 shaders enabled, AMD has disabled some shading units on the FirePro V5900 to reach the product's target shader count. It features 512 shading units, 32 texture mapping units and 32 ROPs. AMD has placed 2,048 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 600 MHz, memory is running at 500 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the AMD FirePro V5900 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 75 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI. FirePro V5900 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 2.0 x16 interface. The card measures 230 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.
