AMD’s new line of FirePro accelerators and OpenGL drivers have undergone significant transformations with regard to quality, price and performance. But there are still some old preconceptions out there. The FirePro team is now working with leading OpenGL 3D CAD vendor - SolidWorks, to send out test workstations with FirePro accelerators to some of their leading community members. No marketing spin, no “official” benchmarks to run, no pre-conditions for use. The users simply try out the card and use it in their own everyday SolidWorks 2009 workflows. Then share their perceptions. Results have started coming in with more coming over the next several months.
