The Radeon Pro WX 5100 is a high-end professional graphics card by AMD, launched in November 2016. Built on the 14 nm process, and based on the Ellesmere graphics processor, in its Polaris 10 PRO GL variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The Ellesmere graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 232 mm² and 5,700 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked Radeon RX 480, which uses the same GPU but has all 2304 shaders enabled, AMD has disabled some shading units on the Radeon Pro WX 5100 to reach the product's target shader count. It features 1792 shading units, 112 texture mapping units and 32 ROPs. AMD has placed 8,192 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 713 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1086 MHz, memory is running at 1250 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the AMD Radeon Pro WX 5100 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 75 W maximum. Display outputs include: 4x DisplayPort. Radeon Pro WX 5100 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. Its price at launch was 499 US Dollars.
