AMD HD6990 Review

Introduction

It feels like it's been a long time coming, the dual-GPU HD6990.

The reality is that it hasn't, rather our initial experiences with the current range of HD6xxx graphics cards from AMD were disappointing enough that it felt like we'd been waiting forever.

So here it is in all its glory. Similarly to most dual-GPU single-board solutions we haven't got two of the top-end R6970 chips here, but rather a combination of two chips that would be a theoretical HD6960.

Is this the card with which AMD reclaim the crown?

Technical Specifications

From a technical standpoint the numbers are, as we'd expect, mind blowing. Everything about this card shows how hard AMD have been working to cram the 6990 full of their finest hardware to ensure it has the best chance possible to be the ultimate single-card solution.

Lol, this is a banging card. I would get it but I don't have over 700 bucks to spend. GTX 560 TI does me just fine.Quote

Once the 590 comes out and ATI drop this down to £500, it will be a no brainer.

I just hate Crossfire personally. Bloody CAP profiles and not being able to force your own AFR modes in the CCC and what not. If they sorted that out, i'd be all over this card.

And when will they introduce twin fan designs for reference cards? Would an extra £5 really matter if your dropping over £500 on a card anyways?Quote
