Nothing gets us more excited at CADspeed than the idea of free hardware, so check out AMD's Experience FirePro! Sweepstakes from February 13-27, 2012. AMD wants to hear unbiased reality from end users — from the single designer using PhotoShop CS5 to the multi-person CAD shop using a range of DCC and CAD/CAE apps.
How to Enter
You can either:
- Post a message on Twitter that describes your experience with reliability, stability and compatibility for any recent* FirePro graphics cards. Be sure to include the hashtag #FireUserCAD in the message.
- Post a comment to the FireUser Blog describing your experience with reliability, stability and compatibility for any recent* FirePro graphic cards. This comment can be as short as one sentence or as detailed as a paragraph or two.
Comments and Tweets should represent real experiences — good, bad or indifferent. As long as your experience references a recent* card, you are using an up-to-date driver, and you say what app(s) you are using, we want to hear what you have to say.
Examples of tweets that describe the quality, graphics card and software:
FirePro V7900 is fast, stable in CREO/Elements Pro + Keyshot workflow. Can't live without Eyefinity #FireUserCAD
FirePro V4900 is performing as expected in SolidWorks 2011 running a 2 million polygon model #FireUserCAD

Once I cleared out old drivers and installed latest versions, FirePro V7800 started performing well in Maya 2011 #FireUserCAD
What to include if you comment:
Comments on FireUser can of course be longer and provide more detail including the applications you work in, how you have stressed the card and if you have any direct comparison using another card with these applications.
