AMD believes their new line of FirePro cards and drivers are more stable and more reliable than any other graphics solution out there. But they want to hear unbiased reality from end users – from the single designer using PhotoShop CS5 to the multi-person CAD shop using a range of DCC and CAD/CAE apps.
Here are two ways to enter:
a) Post a message on Twitter that describes your experience with reliability, stability and compatibility for any recent* FirePro graphics cards. Be sure to include the hashtag #fireuser in the message.
b) Post a comment to http://fireuser.com/blog/experience_firepro describing your experience with reliability, stability and compatibility for any recent* FirePro graphic cards. This comment can be as short as one sentence or as detailed as a paragraph or two..
Comments and Tweets should represent real experiences – good, bad or indifferent. As long as your experience references a recent* card, you are using an up-to-date driver, and you say what app(s) you are using, we want to hear what you have to say.
Sweepstakes runs February 13-27, 2012.
Three Winners will be drawn, each to receive one complimentary AMD FirePro™ V5900 Professional Graphics card valued at approximately US$599 each.
