AMD FirePro W8000, W9000 Challenge Nvidia's Quadro @ HotHardware.com

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,


As of today, AMD has a new set of high-end professional GPUs available --

and a new shot at the professional GPU crown. It's a move the company hopes

will allow it to take a greater share of the professional 3D business.

AMD's battle against Nvidia in the professional graphics market is similar

to the company's struggles against Intel ten years ago. In both cases,

initial AMD gains have been partly reversed; Jon Peddie Research estimates

that AMD now holds just 15% of the professional market, down from 18.4% six

months ago.


The new W9000 and W8000 cards we're reviewing today are replacements for

AMD's nearly two-year-old FirePro 3D V9800 and V8800. Memory bandwidth has

increased by 80% and double-precision floating point performance is up to

1TFlop. On paper, these cards appear to be dynamite...
