AMD’s FirePro group has been doing well the last few quarters and with aggressive sales tactics like this promotion it’s easy to see why more people are embracing AMD professional GPUs.

That said I’m sure AMD’s sale group has consider that option too. But there should be no doubt that AMD’s betting that once users get a little taste of the power behind AMD’s FirePro hardware and the quality of the ecosystem surrounding these products that they’ll be hooked.S|A
