AMD Radeon Pro WX 5100 Graphics Card
Key Features
  • 1792 Stream Processors
  • Polaris Architecture
  • 8GB GDDR5 vRAM
  • 256-Bit Memory Interface
Consuming only 75 watts of power and enclosed in a single-slot, half-length chassis, AMD's Radeon Pro WX 5100 Graphics Card is a power-efficient GPU for workstations running CAD applications, video editing software, and running game engines such as Unreal. Under the hood, the Radeon Pro WX 5100 features 1792 stream processors linked to 8GB of GDDR5 vRAM with a 160 GB/s interface for 3.9 TFLOPS of single-precision computation performance.

Consuming only 75 watts of power and enclosed in a single-slot, half-length chassis, AMD's Radeon Pro WX 5100 Graphics Card is a power-efficient GPU for workstations running CAD applications, video editing software, and running game engines such as Unreal. Under the hood, the Radeon Pro WX 5100 features 1792 stream processors linked to 8GB of GDDR5 vRAM with a 160 GB/s interface for 3.9 TFLOPS of single-precision computation performance. APIs such as OpenCL, OpenGL, and Vulkan can take advantage of that performance and accelerate graphics rendering and computationally intensive video effects.

The output panel of this card contains four DisplayPort 1.3 outputs. With the processing power available inside the WX 5100 card, up to two dual-cable 5K (5120x2880) displays can be driven simultaneously at up to 60 Hz. At DCI and UHD 4K resolutions, four monitors can be driven for expanding your virtual workspace without requiring splitters or MST hubs.

To keep this card cool, AMD implemented a blower-style cooler. By using a radial fan, this system forces air over the components and exhausts it out through the front of the card. This compact cooling solution is ideal for configurations involving tight spacing between components, crucial in smaller enclosures.

10-Bit Color
Native support for 10-bits per color channel assists color-critical tasks such as photo editing and video color-correction by providing a larger visible gamut. 10-bit images require a monitor that supports a 10-bit input.
DirectGMA and SDI Support
Reduces CPU bandwidth and latency bottlenecks, and optimizes communication between GPUs within a system and third party devices like SDI I/O cards. DirectGMA bypasses any need to traverse the host's main memory, reducing CPU utilization, avoiding redundant bus transfers, and resulting in high throughput, low latency data transfers.
Encoding/Decoding Hardware
With specially programmed hardware, the GPU can encode and decode H.265 video files for decreased render times and smoother playback of highly compressed video.
PowerTune
Power management technology which provides direct control over GPU power usage. PowerTune dynamically adjusts clock speed to operate within the power parameters set by the user.
ZeroCore Power Technology
Shuts down the GPU when not in use to greatly reduce power usage while the card is idle.

I received this package a few days late due to weather, but you guys kept me informed the whole way. The product is great. It is just as described before delivery. I'm completely satisfied and will recommend your site to others.

so far so good on linux and windows 10

I got this replace an EVGA Nvidia GTX 1060 since I needed a workstation card for an FEA program I am writing. The EVGA card did not work well on Ubuntu even with the NVIDIA drivers. The computer would lock up on wake from sleep or sometimes even going to sleep. It also had a problem just booting on Ubuntu 2020.04. I haven't experienced any problems with this one so far. The newer linux kernels bake the apprpriate AMDGPU drivers in so you don't have to find them as 3rd party or install them. It just works out of the box. Windows 10 just found the drivers on its own and all was fine. I can't comment on performance yet, just stability and easy of install.

Great card for the money(was on sale)

I had an AMD WX200 but had to upgrade to this as I was really stressing it. The extra memory and speed really helped with the rendering of various forms. The WX200 is a great card but I under estimated the full work load.

Excellent graphics card

This card replaced a very good but slightly outdated graphics card. I needed DirectX 12 and the card could only do DirectX 11. However, after installation, there was a noticeable improvement in image sharpness and color rendering. The only slight down side was that the directions said to remove all the old video drivers. This may not be a good idea, because I had to struggle a bit to get the computer to boot at all with the new card. I think it was looking for a basic video drive to get enough display activity to upgrade to the correct drive. Other than that, installation proceeded smoothly and the results were excellent.

Very Professional

All up a very easy transaction. Quick delivery and no problems at all. I would certainly use them again and have no problem recommending them to anybody thinking of buying.

Excellent video card for two 32 inch monitors

By Peter
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2019-02-28

One of the nicest things about this card is that it does NOT require an external power source Cards of a higher capacity require an extra power plug It would be nice to add that to the specifications descriptions. It drives my two 32 inch monitors extremely well, and passes the Dell video card analyser

Great entry-level professional 3-D and video card

I use this card on Ubuntu 20.04 for Blender, KdenLive, and Waveform11. This card renders faster than much higher priced gaming cards. At full load temperature has never gone above ~75 C. Uses one slot with no extra power cable.

Perfect addition 4 video wall

This was a perfect addition along with the matching six output card for A cctv video wall That access individual monitors instead of one big screen.

Is it possible to install this in an a lower end HP laptop? I'm a 3d artist and need the GPU power for running 3d applications such as blender. I also do some medium range gaming. Would this work?
Asked by: Elijah
No, the AMD Radeon Pro WX 5100 Graphics Card BH #AMWX5100 is only compatible with desktops. If your laptop has a Thunderbolt 3 port, you could use it by purchasing an eGPU enclosure, assuming your system supports that. The Thunderbolt 3 port must support x4 PCIe lanes.

Would this be compatible with a Mac Mini if I put this in a PCIe expansion chassis?
Asked by: Dale
This graphics card is not compatible with an Apple computer with Thunderbolt 3 with Sonnet or with Razer Core eGPU for example. AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100 will be a compatible GPU for a Mac Mini (Thunderbolt 3 port) with a eGPU that supports this GPU as well.

is this compatible with the Acer Aspire TC 885 desktop?
Asked by: kenneth
Acer does not specify the maximum GPU length so we could not say for sure unless you open it and measure it. On the power side the Radeon Pro WX 5100 Graphics Card only requires 75W from the PCIe slot so that will be fine with a 300W PSU.

Asked by: Scott
Yes, but you will not see the boot sequence until the sign-in screen is reached. I recommend using it as a secondary GPU that will add processing power to FCP, Resolve, etc. when using Mojave version of the operating system from Apple.
