AMD FirePro V3900: Pro Performance, Bargain PriceThe FirePro V3900 is AMD's latest budget solution for the professional graphics market. We covered the card's launch last month. It's a formidable step up from the V3800 it replaces. Budget card launches may lack some of the excitement of high-end product debuts, but lower-end cards like the V3900 account for a significant percentage of AMD's total GPU sales.

The V3900 is interesting for another reason -- it's AMD's latest salvo in its ongoing campaign to steal professional market share away from rival Nvidia. Workstation-class GPU sales are overwhelmingly dominated by Team Green, but AMD has slashed its professional prices in an attempt to siphon market share...

The only problem with this is that people are not real happy with AMD's driver support. (at least in the past) If they have that fixed, then it's a good thing.

Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.

To be completely honest RN, I think AMD has come a long way from those days and driver support issues in the consumer space at least, are a thing of the past. On the pro side of the house, I'm not sure. I wonder if others here might have insight?
