AMD seems to be doing a very good job with their FirePro series.
http://wccftech.com/amd-compares-firepro-professional-gpus-quadro/Keep in mind that AMD has only
counted the newest generation of
Quadro GPUs so most of these are
rocking the Maxwell GM107 core.
The highest end spectrum, which
consists of the Quadro 5200 and
FirePro W8100, sees AMD leading by
about 50%. The lowest end
spectrum, which consists of the
FirePro W2100 and Quadro K420,
sees AMD leading by around 90%.
The middle end spectrum consists of
the FirePro W5100 and Quadro
K2200, sees Red leading by 33.3%.
Infact the only market segment in
which AMD is not in the lead is the
upper tier of the low end spectrum
(which is usually referred to as entry
level in the mainstream consumer
market). AMDs FirePro GPUs
(specifically the S9150) have also
recently landed the no.1 spot in the
Green500 list, so basically AMD
powers the worlds most efficient
supercomputer . As far as cost
events of HPC clusters go,It does
look like AMD has both sides of the
coin covered doesnt it?
