A look at the workstation graphics market: Quadro vs FirePro

Posted on Wednesday, August 29 2012 @ 11:58:25 CEST by

Theo Valich from VR Zone provides a look at what you can expect from the workstation graphics card market in 2012/2013. The reporter says the professional graphics card market isn't looking too good for AMD as the $4,000 FirePro W9000 can't keep up with NVIDIA's similiar-priced Fermi-based Quadro 6000 in numerous tests, and is beaten in some tests by the $750 Quadro 4000. Full details over here.
There's plenty of battles coming through, and we'll closely follow to see just how AMD can lead this battle with NVIDIA. From thes initial results, AMD has plenty of work ahead to optimize the drivers in order to get their parts competitive against almost two year old Quadro cards, yet alone the brand new, Kepler-based Quadro K5000. NVIDIA has proven its position as the undisputed leader (over 90% share) and AMD has to go on an aggressive tangent to build its challenge. For now, we cannot recommend investments valued in thousands of dollars for parts which do not beat two-year old competitors. Then again, we're not exactly happy to see NVIDIA continuing to sell numerous Fermi-based boards well into 2013.
