Cheaper than chips: with AMD’s 50% off offer UK customers can pick up a FirePro W5000 for under £200 and a W7000 for under £300

AMD is looking to steal some of Nvidia’s thunder by introducing a hefty ‘cash back’ offer on its CAD-focused FirePro W-Series professional graphics cards. The move coincides with the much-anticipated launch of Nvidia’s new CAD-focused Kepler-based Quadro graphics cards – the K600, K2000 & K4000 – which were unveiled earlier this week.

With AMD’s offer one individual per company can claim up to 50% off a single card purchase – that’s up to £200 off the 2GB FirePro W5000 or up to £300 off the 4GB FirePro W7000.

This looks like an incredible deal for what are both excellent choices for mid-range CAD use. Check out our review here, testing with SolidWorks, PTC Creo, and 3ds Max.

The offer runs until 30 June 2013. Pre-approval is needed before purchase so make sure you read all the small print!
