HIS HD6990 Eyefinity 5760×1080 Review

HIS HD6990 Eyefinity Review


We have something a little special for you today.

With the recent influx of exceptionally high-end GPUs such as the HIS HD6990 on test today, and the GTX590 it’s clear that even a 1920×1200 single screen really isn’t doing justice to the cards and their abilities.

What we really needed was a triple screen setup to push them hard and test them in the way they’re designed.

Thankfully, courtesy of Iiyama, we now have three screens to run these cards at a massive 5760×1080 resolution, which is what we’re doing today for the HIS HD6990, and over the coming weeks we’ll go back and look at the other high-end solutions and see how they fare.

It’s a monster of a review that’s taken an age to put together, so without further ado let’s crack on.

Technical Specifications

The HIS Digital HD6990 is a reference style card running at the standard 830 MHz. A whopping 4GB of GDDR5 ensures that even in Eyefinity mode the card shouldn’t run out of frame buffer.
