AMD HD6790 Review

AvP and Crysis Warhead

AMD HD6790 Overclock 3D Mark Review

Alien vs Predator

AvP is a lot kinder. Although out of the box it struggles to pass the bare minimum 30 FPS average, at least with the overclock in place it has a little more get up and go.


Crysis Warhead

Things are very similar in Crysis Warhead. Obviously for a low-end card we're running only at Gamer settings and zero Anti-Aliasing but still the HD6790 manages a healthy 40FPS. Despite only grabbing 4 more frames from the overclock the most important thing is the big leap in minimum frame-rate which helps reduce the stuttering as the card tries to keep up.

We did run in maxed Enthusiast mode but an average of 20FPS isn't desirable to anyone and if you wanted to run in those conditions you shouldn't be looking at such a basic graphics card in the first place.

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.

Architectualy speaking isn't this another 5 series card?Quote
