The Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6790 is definitely a step down from the 6850, despite having some very similar technology in certain areas. However, its price tag is also a little less; the £25 price difference still leaves it enough room to mark itself...

Remember the Radeon HD 5830? That videocard filled a certain price point, but it was actually the same GPU used in the high-end HD 5870, with a large chunk of the die disabled. The net result was a graphics card that was physically bigger than the...

The SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6790 is a good card. It’s a little power hungry, but that’s because it comes from a much higher-end card. Performance really leaves nothing to complain about—most games are playable at mid-range quality...

What is there to say about the Sapphire HD6790 other than it does seem to be a pretty good replacement for the HD5770 graphics card. Not only does it come in at a pretty decent price point of $149. There is quite a nice list of features that the...

The 550 Ti was released with a $150 price point 3 weeks ago. The price has started to drop on that card in lieu of the 6970's release. There are still 550 Ti's out there at that price. It's only fair that the Sapphire Radeon HD 6790 recieved...

When the consumer receives their Sapphire 6790 the first impression due to the size of the box is that this is a basic, mainstream card however upon unboxing it they will find a card which goes above and beyond expectations. As well as getting a...

When we saw the AMD Barts cards initially released, it took awhile to get used to the fact those cards were the new "lower-end" models. AMD's new naming scheme and classification changed things from the 5000 series definitions, and the 6850 became...

There was a time when choosing a video card was not really a difficult choice, as there were not that many cards to confuse the end user as to what to purchase, but that time has now passed. Buying a video card now means making a lot of...

Die Radeon HD 6790 ist in Punkto Leistung ohne Zweifel das perfekte Bindeglied zwischen Mittelklasse und Performanceriege der Radeon HD 6000-Serie, doch wird sie es in den eigenen Reihen schwer haben, sich zu behaupten. Schließlich fällt der...

Avec la Radeon HD 6790, AMD s’attaque à une cible facile : la très peu intéressante GeForce GTX 550 Ti. Alors que ses performances étaient déjà égalées par la Radeon HD 5770, il était évident...

Mit der Radeon HD 6790 reagiert AMD etwas überraschend und vor allem kurzfristig auf die GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Computerbase-Test) und versucht durchgehend die Plus-Punkte der Nvidia-Karte zu attackieren. In Sachen Performance ist das ohne weiteres...

Nel complesso, le prestazioni offerte dalla Sapphire Radeon HD 6790 sono buone e spesso superiori a quelle della GeForce GTX 550 Ti, anche nelle versioni overcloccate di fabbrica.L’utilizzo di un’interfaccia di memoria a 256 bit rende questa...
