AMD FirePro firesale as company offers up to 50% rebates

AMD announced a rebate action that cuts the price of some of its FirePro workstation graphics cards by up to 50 percent until the end of this month! This offer is valid for clients in the US, Canada (excluding Quebec), France, Germany and the UK when buying the card from AMD Approved Resellers. Participating cards include the FirePro W9100, W8100, W8000, W7000, S9000 and S7000 models. You can find the full terms and conditions on the AMD FirePro promotion page.

The market for discrete workstation GPUs is relatively small though as most firms upgrade the complete system. Figures by Jon Peddie Research reveal 1.28 million workstation-class GPUs shipped in Q3 2014 while 1.02 million workstations were shipped in the same quarter. And it's safe to assume that at least a small portion of these workstations contain more than one GPU.
AMD claims its pre-rebate pricing already allows it to be a performance-per-dollar leader in almost all price segments, but whether that leadership holds after factoring in running costs, performance per-dollar-per-watt, is another matter. That point is especially poignant given that some of Nvidia’s newest Quadro GPUs make use of the highly-efficient Maxwell architecture that current 28nm GCN designs from AMD cannot match.
