HIS HD6990 Eyefinity 5760x1080 Review
Published: 8th June 2011 | Source: HIS | Price: £549 |
HIS products should always be lauded for coming in greatly reduced packaging when compared to some of the cards we see. Why double the size of the cardboard, and therefore trees, used if you don't need to.
The card itself is a reference design with those two PCI-e 8pin inputs making sure the twin GPUs are fed with all the power they need.
On a card such as this connectivity is the priority. The HD6990 has one DVI-D and four DisplayPort adaptors. As DisplayPort monitors are a rare breed HIS have kindly included two active adaptors along with the HD6990.
Active adaptors basically allow you to use standard DVI monitors from the DisplayPort headers. By including them in the package HIS allow you to get the benefits of Eyefinity without needing either a host of new monitors or purchasing the expensive active adaptors yourself.
Besides these we have the normal other accessories that we'd expect, namely a Crossfire bridge, a DVI to VGA adaptor and some power converters.

In the latest CCC you can set up presets. I have 2 presets 1*5760*1080 & 3*1920*1080. I have these assigned to keyboard shortcuts, so by hitting one key you can change your resolution between "work" mode & "play" mode.Quote
the only game i would call 100% in eyefinity is Metro 2033, even crysis warhead wasnt that good, on the 2 outer screens it was zoomed in so if you saw someone they looked right next to you but when you turn to face him he would be 50+ metres away.
where as metro was just perfect all the extra desktop space and it still looked just as detailedQuote
