Sword Of Justice

As this is a reference design the main features are the same. We have two 8-pin PCIe power inputs to keep both cards happily fed with all the juice they could require.

Whether it's the upcoming release of Dragon Age 2, or whether we're just nerds at heart, but the hardcore sword-wielding cover boy really looks great. Especially on that ice-blue background.

Four GPUs of loveliness ladies and gentlemen? Don't mind if we do.

One of the best anti-tampering solutions we've seen. You can steam it off all you like, but the word "VOID" stamped across the back is a bit of a giveaway.

At the exhaust end of the card we have the same DVI + 4 mini DisplayPort arrangement as on the reference. No great surprise there. Apparently all 6990s will ship with an Active DisplayPort adaptor, which will be amazing if true. Sadly this is a OEM version so we can't test the Eyefinity capabilities without one.

I wonder how it would perform in wather cooled conditions? Uderwise nice card, but a little hot and loud for my taste Quote

very nice - but however rich i think i am, i cannot justify paying over £1000 for two cards, just for an upped framerate.

although, on their own, they handle the benches very well, considering that they are dual gpu cards.

i think AMD have also overpriced them, as they offer no new technology. for that price i would expect DX12 (whatever/whenever that may be) Quote

Wow it might be expensive but crossfire performance is insane though that's a hell of a lot of money for two graphics card regardless of performance.Quote
