September 23, 2020 by rob-ART morgan, mad scientist

How fast is the Pro W5500X compared to the three other Apple factory GPUs?


GRAPH LEGEND

Pro 580X = AMD Radeon Pro 580X GPU (8GB of GDDR5 memory)
Pro W5500X = AMD Radeon Pro W5500X GPU (8GB of GDDR6 memory)
Pro W5700X = AMD Radeon Pro W5700X GPU (16GB of GDDR6 memory)
Pro Vega II = AMD Radeon Pro Vega II GPU (32GB of HBM2 memory)

TEST MULE: 2019 Mac Pro 12-core 3.30GHz W-3235 CPU, 96GB of 2933 MHz DDR4 ECC memory, 1TB PCIe-based flash boot drive

WHAT DID WE LEARN?

The 2019 Mac Pro 12-Core has three optional GPUs to replace the default Pro 580X GPU.

Though faster than the Pro 580X, the Pro W5500X is way behind the Pro W5700X -- which rivals a single Pro Vega II.
