AMD HD6790 Overclock 3D Mark Review

Far Cry 2

By virtue of its older, less shader intensive, nature we'd expect Far Cry 2 to perform well on the HD6790 but it's actually the opposite with the scores as low as we've ever seen. Not very good.


Metro 2033

With a single card Metro 2033 gives fairly standard results across the board. We're not too certain why but even the most powerful single GPU doesn't really force the issue. Thankfully for AMD this means the HD6790 becomes the little card that could here, only 10 FPS behind a stock GTX570.
