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.

KitGuru – Children’s Hospice Charity PC Auction

We can all agree that the last 12 months have been challenging and stressful for everyone, and I wanted to utilise Kitguru in a positive way for a great cause. Over the next two weeks, we are holding a silent auction via email for our readers and supporters, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice. Additionally KitGuru will be donating the same amount as the winning bid, effectively doubling the donation to the charity. This is a very worthy cause that we want to support this year and everyone who enters will know that they are potentially going to help children in real need.
