We don’t do many professional graphics card reviews, so we don’t have actual ‘workstation’ to benchmark on. What we do have is an off the shelf CyberPowerPC Zeus 2500 SE PC, which is loaded up with the best mainstream hardware around, so it should do the job just fine. We’ll be testing out the AMD FirePro V8800, W8000 and W9000 in this system.

As you can see, this system contains solid hardware and should easily power the programs we want to benchmark with. We then installed AMD FirePro Unified Driver Version 8.982.2 for Windows 7 64-bit and benchmarked three AMD FirePro profession graphics cards. GPU-Z v0.6.3 and v0.6.4 both do not correctly show the details on the FirePro W8000 and W9000 cards. The clock speeds are shown correctly though, as you can see in the screen captures below.
