AMD FirePro workstation graphics provide some of the core innovation and technology behind the 3D, CAD, visualization and video economies. The FireUser.com website is a community for professional in these economies to come together to learn about the latest acceleration and display technologies, as well as influence the features and direction of these technologies.
Our “target profile” uses a graphics accelerator for OpenGL & DirectX professional applications in CAD & engineering, digital content creation, financial services, government, medical, oil & gas, and research.
The FireUser.com sponsor is AMD. While the community is completely independent, and the blog content the views of the authors, the basic charter of the site is to promote awareness of the FirePro professional graphics accelerator line (blog & articles) and to engage customers through understanding how they want the product to evolve. Postings on this site are the opinions of the authors and may not represent AMD’s positions, strategies or opinions. Links to third party sites are provided for convenience and AMD is not responsible for the contents of such linked sites and no endorsement is implied.
