    Default AMD HD 6990 Sneak Peek




    While we cannot reveal the specifications or framerate numbers to you today, we will say this, we are happy with what AMD has provided. The specifications are everything HardOCP had hoped for. We think gamers will be pleased with the hardware. This video card is better out-of-the-gate than the Radeon HD 5970 ever was.

    Wow! I'd love to have one of those so I can play Plants VS Zombies at 1000 FPS instead of 500!

    Can it run Crysis2?

    AMD Radeon HD 6990 release date delayed, tricking GTX 590

    In the coming months the battle for the high-end graphic card market will certainly reach its peak point. Both of the major GPU manufacturers are planning on refreshing their high-end products in order to gain more popularity amongst the masses. While NVIDIA will push forward their fastest product yet, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590, AMD will certainly strike back with their best product, the AMD Radeon 6990. And the slight advantage is in the release date.
    The coming battle will be very intense because of AMD’s staggered launch strategy. Things have gone so that that AMD has supposedly decided to postpone their commercial release date of the AMD Radeon 6990 in order not to give NVIDIA a chance to modify the design of their flagship GTX 590. This strategy has one point only, to give AMD the edge again in the higher segment. Although this segment does not generate much revenue, being able to boast that you make the fastest graphic card certainly adds to any company’s prestige and fame.


    AMD Radeon HD 6990

    NVIDIA is expected to release its GTX 590 in March and thus AMD have opted to release their Radeon HD 6990 just the following month, in April.
    Due to the increasing number of processors that integrate a graphic chip inside them (Intel Core i5, Atom, AMD Zecate, etc.) most of the revenue generating lower end segment of the market has migrated to the CPU manufacturers in spite of NVIDIA and AMD’s best efforts. While this is not terribly bad for AMD as they do produce CPU’s with integrated graphics it is a bit of a downfall for NVIDIA. This slow but sure migration of entry level GPU’s in the CPU’s will surely add a dent in the revenues of both companies and at the same time it will intensify the battle for the mid-end and high-end segments of the market. On the downside if this strategy does pay off AMD will surely use it for their next generation of GPU’s and so will NVIDIA. This will only mean that we end users will have to wait more and more for the release of each generation.


    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590

    The NVIDIA GTX 590 is expected to integrate dual GF110 GPUs with a combined 1024 CUDA cores and 3GB of DDR5 memory all tied together with the help of a 2×384-bit memory bus while the AMD Radeon HD Radeon 6990 will be equipped with no less than 3840 Stream Processors and a massive 4GB of DDR5 memory. You can find out more about the specs of the NVIDIA’s GPU’s by clicking here and more about AMD’s GPU’s by clicking here.
    All in all it seems that the two major players in the GPU market, AMD and NVIDIA, will surely have a couple of hot months very, very soon.

    AMD's Radeon HD 6990 is in our lab





    What's this colossal piece of computing kit that's just turned up? Why, it appears to be AMD's new Radeon HD 6990. At least, that's what it says in big letters on the front of the card.

    We can only speculate (actually we know; we just can't tell you yet), but it looks as though AMD's new top-end monster graphics card is getting achingly close to its launch date. So much so, in fact, that our review sample has already landed, ready to be thrashed in our test systems.

    March 8 Launch Date for Radeon HD 6990

    The the consumer graphics industry is about to see yet another round of competition between top market players AMD and NVIDIA in March, with reports suggesting that the red team (AMD) has chosen March 8 as the launch date of its Radeon HD 6990 graphics card. NVIDIA's response, the GeForce GTX 590 is slated for sometime later in March, as well. AMD is said to be finalizing the SKU, and it should be launched by partners on the 8th of next month. The Radeon HD 6990 is a dual-GPU "CrossFire on a stick" solution, in which two AMD Cayman GPUs with 2 GB of memory each, work in tandem.

    They say a 6990 OC is 67% faster than a 580.. but the 580 isn't a dual core card so I don't know how impressive that is.
