The AMD ATI Radeon HD 6990 is a massive graphics card measuring in at 12 inches long (30cm) and weighing a little over 1kg. The heatsinks are separated by a blower fan which is positioned in-between them rather than at the end of the card. The Radeon HD 6990 has an impressively low 37-watt idle consumption. The GDDR5 memory works at 5000MHz (1.25GHz x 4) on this particular model and features a 4GB capacity.

Instead of cherry picking games to review we have decided to run our regular HTL benchmark suite and added 3 of the latest DX11 games that claim full 5x1 Eyefinity support out of the box. We feel that this gives a more realistic view of Eyefinity...

Since the end of 2010 AMD has successfully launched their 2nd generation DX11 cards from the highest-end HD 6970 to the entry-level HD 6850. AMD’s top-end HD 6970 may have been enough to beat Nvidia’s 2nd tiered GTX 570, but it was still no...

I can only see two reasons that anyone would buy a Radeon HD 6990, given the other options currently available. First, because this is a dual-slot card, you’re able to fit two of them in an ATX chassis and enjoy the potential of quad-CrossFire....
