AMD HD6990 Review

Far Cry 2

Ubisofts take on the open-plan FPS still looks as amazing today as it did then and few things are more enjoyable than an exploding barrel to the wedding tackle of your enemy. It's here where you can see the limits that two GPUs on a single board have over two separate cards. The HD6970 CF which has kept pace throughout testing so far pulls out a handy lead and the GTX580SLI really asserts its dominance.


Metro 2033

Now here is a game built for this card. No amount of insane hardware will push it along at remotely the levels that two, even mild, GPUs will in comparison. So it proves with the HD6990 once again neck and neck with its brethren and a mile ahead of the single GTX580.

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
