The FirePro W7170M is a professional graphics card by AMD, launched in October 2015. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the Amethyst graphics processor, in its Amethyst XT variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The Amethyst graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 366 mm² and 5,000 million transistors. It features 2048 shading units, 128 texture mapping units and 32 ROPs. AMD has placed 4,096 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 723 MHz, memory is running at 1250 MHz.
Being a mxm module card, the AMD FirePro W7170M does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 100 W maximum. This device has no display connectivity, as it is not designed to have monitors connected to it. FirePro W7170M is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface.
