The FirePro W600 was a high-end professional graphics card by AMD, launched in June 2012. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the Cape Verde graphics processor, in its Cape Verde PRO GL variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The Cape Verde graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 123 mm² and 1,500 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition, which uses the same GPU but has all 640 shaders enabled, AMD has disabled some shading units on the FirePro W600 to reach the product's target shader count. It features 512 shading units, 32 texture mapping units and 16 ROPs. AMD has placed 2,048 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 750 MHz, memory is running at 1000 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the AMD FirePro W600 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 75 W maximum. Display outputs include: 6x mini-DisplayPort. FirePro W600 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 163 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 599 US Dollars.
