AMD HD6990 Review
One of the biggest strengths of the HD6 series from AMD is its ability to Tessellate with the best of them and it’s given us some of the highest scores we’ve seen in this benchmark. Indeed you can see from the graph that the HD6970 Crossfire setup gives nearly 150 FPS average. Unbelievable heights for such a testing benchmark. Sadly the same can’t be said for the HD6990 as it’s just nowhere near as good as we hoped. Perhaps the early drivers are to blame here.
With the image quality set to maximum we have a similar result. The new Anti-Aliasing algorithms are doing their job though as the drop-off from using 8x AA is only 25% compared to the 33% of the HD6970 CF setup.
