FirePro Friday #3 – Win SAPPHIRE AMD FirePro cards every Friday in the run up to Christmas

FirePro Fridays just keeps getting better! We’re now on our third week of our SAPPHIRE AMD FirePro giveaway, and it’s the best prize yet…

We’ve already run our FirePro W5000 competition, with Gary May being the proud winner, and we’ll be announcing the winner of our FirePro W7000 giveaway on Thursday 19th December.

This upcoming Friday, we’re giving away a SAPPHIRE AMD FirePro W8000!

The W8000 is ideal for multitasking and application performance across up to four displays. It boasts the innovative all-new Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, and for 3D workloads, its GeometryBoost feature makes quick work of triangles, processing 1.8 billion per second.

You can learn more about this powerful card over at the official AMD website.

In order to enter, all you need to do is answer the following question before entries close on 20 December. Be sure to check out 3dartistonline.com, our Facebook and our Twitter for our final AMD FirePro giveaway on 27 December.

Good luck!

    Sure glad that this contest is running. I am learning Blender and render times can become quite long. Check out the render I did Friday. At 5,000 samples it took a little over 12 hours and still could have used more sample.
    Winning one of these wonderful video cards would sure be useful and adding glass into a scene less of a concern.

    Look at this beast! Oh wow wow.. I really need an 3D Artist and AMD Santa this year!

  • Sasa

    Have to disappoint you with the fact that Blander is not AMD friendly unfortunately. OpenCL is almost not supported at all so fast rendering will not be possible with this card. Only Nvidia and CUDA will do the trick.

    Unfortunately if you want faster rendering, Nvidia is the way to go with blender cycles. I Upgraded quite a few months back, from an ATi card to the Nvidia card due to GPU rendeirng not being supported for ATi cards. Blender internal also however supports only CPU rendering that I’m aware of.

    It would be really helpful because meanwhile im working on some WaterSimulations in Cinema4D an getting a good preview is next to impossible because of the high polygon count.
