AMD HD6790 Overclock 3D Mark Review

Up Close

Our model of the HD6790 is an OEM version, so devoid of any stickers or fanciness. In this guise you can really see how uninteresting the reference cooler is. No vents or areas that will assist cooling in Crossfire.

The business end of the HD6790 follows the standard AMD pattern which enables Eyefinity. Dual DVI, HDMI and twin DisplayPort cover your output needs.

Power is provided by two PCIe 6-pin which should make sure the HD6790 gets all the power it could require even in overclocked trim.

Finally the only remotely noticeable feature is the standard red fan. We've been quite damning in our criticism of the noise that this generates normally, so we're interested to discover if it's much quieter now it wont have as much heat to shift.

It's better than I expected it to be but IMHO it's pretty pointless when for a bit more you can get a 6850 and when non reference versions come out which will cost a bit more it will be even more pointless.

I don't understand why Nvidia and AMD released the 550 and 6790 surely the time and effort would have been better spent making improved versions of the 6850 and 460.
