AMD FirePro W5000 100 - 505635 Workstation Video Card Reviews

unexpectedly

Great workstation card

Posted

Pros: AMD's 50% off rebate - until October 15, 2013

Cons: Amazon couldn't ship it next day?

I needed something new for my Fridge CAD computer build as the PNY nVidia Quadro FX3800 wouldn't boot in this new system! I was going to go with the economy card that's about half the price of this one. Then I saw the rebate. Then I read specs and reviews of this card compared to others. When compared to the $408 AMD workstation card this one is replacing, the W5000 was 5 to 10x better in benchmarks on various CAD sites! OK, sold! AMD approved the rebate on the 2nd business day. Their online form is super easy. Just note that the ONLY serial number is on the back of the GPU's PCB on a sticker... it's not on the box anywhere. I was happy about HD audio coming through the DP port...
