AMD Radeon HD 6990 Launch Day: a 500W and $700 Dual-GPU Graphics Card for The Fanatic!



AMD Radeon HD 6990



Radeon HD 6990 Overview

Ecco fatto, AMD has launched the fastest graphics card on the market: the Radeon HD 6990. This power (processing power and above all power consumption) monster is made up of two Cayman GPUs (the GPU of the HD 6970) on a single PCB. AMD’s Radeon HD 6990 features dual-BIOS capabilities. This feature is controlled by the Unlocking Switch, which toggles between the factory-supported Performance BIOS of 375W (BIOS1), and an Extreme Performance BIOS (BIOS2) that can potentially unlock higher clock speeds and up to 450W of mind-blowing performance.

    I think that PCI Express 3 will need to increase the power draw limits!

    At this rate we will soon have PCs that need a 3 phase power supply!

    I am sorry to say but this card is a first fail on AMD side since the 2×00 and 3×00 series
