AMD FirePro Graphics Group Test

AMD’s FirePro W-series arrived towards the end of 2012, but they still pack a punch. The fact that these cards remain competitive over a year after release is testament to the strength of the architecture. We had the opportunity to pit three of the top models against each other – the W5000, the W7000 and the W9000. These range in price from under £400 to nearly £2,800 – and are aimed at quite different markets.
