AMD HD6790 Overclock 3D Mark Review

Unigine Heaven 0xAA

The Unigine Heaven Benchmark has been a happy hunting ground for AMD with their recent cards, but not today. Once again it's such a cut-down card that even with zero Anti-Aliasing the HD6790 just runs out of puff.

 

8xAA

Understandably with Anti-Aliasing turned on things don't improve. We're not expecting miracles from a value card, but even compared to the slightly more expensive HD6850 it's a long way behind.

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.
