XFX Radeon HD 6990 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 Video Card with Eyefinity HD-699A-ENF9

Pros: I've owned this card for near 3 months now and wanted to give you all an update, in fact a non-owner stated that the clock speed of these vs. 5870s was no different, I will state I had two 5870s in Crossfire before this single 6990... and the 6990 blows them away, speed, performance, quality, its all there and then some. It may be the dual GPU's on a single card that performs better than two GPU's via crossfire in my setup, since on Crosshair IV Formula mobo only single PCI slot is at x16, dual is one x16 one x8, tri-SLI would be x8, x8, x4 I believe, but could be wrong on that I'm not too familiar with SLI setup (on this mobo at least, I do have another LGA 1366 mobo with 990x on it with dual 590 GTXs also) Anyhow, I'm not really a fanboy of either, they are both about equal in performance, though I still believe all in all 6990 takes the cake this round ;)

Cons: Newegg and others are out of stock and I would love to drop another $750 obo to get another for Crossfire, they are that sick my friends... Even have another Koolance VID-AR699 waterblock just sitting here crying because it wants a friend to play with, but they must be backed up in sales or delivery to get them out, in fact I'm watching about 20 websites daily trying to get my 2nd... even have an alarm rigged overnight in case one shows up in inventory -- worst thing so far is some SMALL driver errors, but ATI has worked out all of the important bugs thus far from 11.2 to 11.6 driver packages - however they do not affect any games, I think its more of a glitch in Windows or Java apps alone, never had a problem in any games, from Modern Warfare 2/Black OPs, Fallout 3 or New Vegas, GTA IV, EverQuest 2, Crysis 1/2, and more, not a single problem, running all on max settings except EQ2, which some zones can be quite crowded with lots to draw, so i expect to lower settings just a bit

Overall Review: Dude don't believe the bull, buy 2 of these, you for sure will not regret it, the fan is STILL much quieter than my old 5870s, only those who set manual fan to 100% are the complainers, because stock fan settings aside from waterblocks kept it nice and cool - and i had to wait about another month plus while Koolance announced and delivered the waterblocks, they were still in development when i got my 6990, so yes, I have experience enough without water cooling for near a month and a half in Wisconsin, USA with indoor/outdoor temps of up to 95 deg. fahrenheit so far running only on fans, there is no way anyone should be misled or disappointed with these cards, just make sure PSU, CPU, mobo and case will fit a near 12.5" card...

AMD announces the Radeon HD 6990M, has some pointed words for NVIDIA

Here are five words you've heard before: "the world's fastest notebook GPU." Why, NVIDIA made just that claim two weeks ago, when it touted the GeForce GTX 580M as the nimblest card this side of Pluto. Not so fast, says AMD. The outfit just unveiled the Radeon HD 6990M with DirectX11 and HD3D support, and it insists this is the speediest GPU on the block -- specifically, up to 25 percent faster than any other GPU that's been announced to the public. And yes, AMD's well aware of that 580M. Just like NVIDIA came out swinging, making pointed comparisons to the Radeon HD 6970M, AMD's got some fighting words of its own: the company says the 6990M can whip the 580M in the benchmark AvP and games such as Batman Arkham Asylum, Dragon Age 2, Shogun 2, BattleForge, Left 4 Dead, Metro2033, Wolfenstein MP, The Chronicles of Riddick, and ET: Quake Wars. We don't need to remind you that these numbers merely represent the story each company wants to tell. Still, you get the idea: these are the top-of-the-line cards each has to offer at the moment, and they'll likely be competing for space in your next gaming rig.

As you can imagine, the 6990M joins other Radeon HD cards in supporting the company's Eyefinity technology, as well as GPU app acceleration. Let it be known, too, that while the 6990M supplants the popular 6970M as far as performance claims go, AMD tells us the 6970M will still be available for the foreseeable future. Speaking of availability, the 6990M will be offered in the Alienware M18x -- right alongside NVIDIA's 580M. Additionally, you'll find it packed inside Clevo's P170HM and P150HM. And you didn't think we forgot about specs, did you? Head on past the break to find the full PR, along with a handful of technical details straight from the horse's mouth.

Radeon HD 6990M And GeForce GTX 580M: A Beautiful Lie

Mobile Model Shenanigans: What's In A Name?

Power consumption is the big neutralizer when it comes to separating desktop and mobile component design. As you know, power is dissipated as heat, and heat is public enemy number one. We certainly can’t walk around with three-inch-thick notebooks that consist of more copper than component space and require desktop-sized power supplies. Even if such a device were portable, we surely wouldn't want it resting on our...laps.

So, we're not unreasonable here. The idea that certain pieces of hardware have to be downclocked before they're deemed suitable in notebooks is acceptable to us.

But then came the naming games. The earliest any of us can remember a mobile part being upgraded (in spirit, at least) to an inflated model name was when ATI’s Radeon 9600 XT magically turned into the much larger Mobility 9700. ATI could have excused that move with the explanation that the Radeon 9600 XT outperformed an underclocked Radeon 9700 desktop GPU at similar power levels, but that was just the beginning of a long journey down the rabbit hole.

Stranger the naming became, until we finally ended up with underclocked upper-mainstream gaming GPUs getting the names of their extreme counterparts in the Radeon HD 6970M and GeForce GTX 580M. But all of that paled in comparison to one of AMD’s most recent mobile releases, the single-GPU Radeon HD 6990M.

You might expect the 6990M to consist of two Radeon HD 6970M GPUs, since that's how we get a desktop-class Radeon HD 6990.

Instead, we see AMD switch from an underclocked version of its Radeon HD 6850 to an underclocked version of its Radeon HD 6870. Whereas the desktop Radeon HD 6990 has almost two times the raw computational power of the Radeon HD 6970, the 6990M gains less than 25% over AMD's 6970M.

Both AMD and Nvidia excuse this naming disparity by affixing their flagship desktop model name to their flagship mobile products. However, we see this as a great way to deceive uninitiated notebook buyers. After all, the performance profile of each desktop GPU is trumpeted to the masses before the notebook GPUs with similar names are introduced. So, “common knowledge” works against the partially-informed buyer.

Man, just imagine if Intel called its mobile flagship the Core i7-3960XM. Though, at $1050, the four-core, 2.7 GHz Core i7-2960XM is only one digit away from following along...

Amidst all of this, some say that the other limitations of mobile computing make additional GPU power unnecessary. Notebook screens are relatively small, with moderate resolutions that typically don’t require as much graphics horsepower to drive. Although they exist, we haven't yet tested any mobile gaming platforms capable of spanning across three screens via Eyefinity or Surround, and single-screen resolutions as high as 1920x1080 aren't particularly taxing on today's graphics processors.

Nevertheless, today we’ll we compare the real performance differences between desktop and notebook GPUs while testing within the limits of a real high-end desktop replacement notebook.

6990 radeon m hd

I’ll be blunt: the AMD Radeon HD 6990 is a beast. Soundly outpacing the best that Nvidia has to offer (at the moment), this dual-GPU juggernaut — previously codenamed “Antilles” — clambers to the top of our graphics card heap by serving up the most raw power we’ve seen to date. But then there’s the price: at $699 (as of 3/8/2011), it’s strictly aimed at those ultra-enthusiasts who’ll spare no expense on their gaming rig.

But rest assured, you’re arguably getting your money’s worth — provided you’re already living luxuriously on the bleeding edge. The Radeon HD 6990 is pricey, but it proved to be demonstrably faster than its closest competitor, the $500 Nvidia GeForce GTX 580. For comparison’s sake, I also included the $350 AMD Radeon HD 6970 — the company’s recent single-GPU speed champ.

Inside a Juggernaut

The “Cayman” GPU debuted in AMD’s 6900 series, in the aforementioned Radeon HD 6970 graphics card. The Radeon HD 6990 combines a pair of these GPUs onto a single card — think Crossfire, on a stick. The end result is a powerful graphics card that fits comfortably into a single PCI slot (though the card is two slots wide), leaving plenty of room for a second…

In keeping with AMD tradition, the Radeon HD 6990 manages to eke out serious speed while sipping electricity. It’s designed to meet a 300W TDP at its stock, factory settings — that’s relatively meager for such a beefy part. The card requires dual 8-pin connectors, so make sure your power supply is up to snuff before you grab your wallet.

The Radeon HD 6990 also offers up something special for customers who want to grind the most power out of their $700 bauble. A dual-BIOS switch on the side of the card toggles the part from its stock, factory-supported position to an overdrive mode, with increased clock speed and voltage demand. AMD calls it the “Antilles Unlocking Switch for Uber Mode,” or AUSUM; I won’t. Coupled with AMD’s Power Tune application, you’ll have a wide range of control over the GPU and Memory clocks. For these tests, I also compared the Radeon HD 6990 at its stock speeds (830 MHz), to it’s base overclocked setting (880 MHz) — referred to as Radeon HD 6990 OC for simplicity’s sake.

Before we talk results, lets talk features. The Radeon HD 6990 offers five display outputs: four mini-display ports, and a dual-link DVI port. Every card will ship with 3 adapters (two mini-DisplayPort to DVI, and one mini-DisplayPort to HDMI), for use in an Eyefinity setup. You can drive up to six displays from the card, including arranging five 24-inch screens in portrait mode. Or my personal favorite: driving three 30-inch monitors. If you happen to own, or are considering purchasing three 30-inch displays, a $700 graphics card is likely pocket change (and if you happen to be looking for a roomate, I’m available).

Crunching the Numbers

On to the numbers! Our testbed consisted of a Core i7-2600 processor, running at its stock 3.4GHz clock speed, 4GB of RAM, and Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit). The latest drivers were used for both cards — in AMD’s case, it was a preview version of their Catalyst 11.4 driver.

As always, we’ll start with the synthetic benchmarks. First up is Futuremark’s 3DMark 11. It’s the latest version of the tried and true 3DMark benchmark suite, though 3DMark 11 has been designed for the DirectX 11 era. The benchmark churns through a number of graphics and CPU intensive tests, and then assigns a score based on how the hardware performs.

The numbers speak for themselves. The Radeon HD 6990 boasts a 67% lead over the Nvidia GTX 580 on the Performance setting, sliding up to 70% in Extreme mode.

The 3DMark 11 score includes CPU tests, so I went ahead and isolated the results for the GPU tests. That’s an 89% lead over the GTX 580 on the Performance setting, and a 75% lead at the Extreme setting. In a word: Wow.

The tale is rather similar with our second synthetic test, Unigine’s Heaven benchmark. Heaven is a rather forward looking benchmark, gorgeous and graphically intensive in equal measure. If you’d like to try it out for yourself, there’s a free version available at Unigine’s website. Performance is a bit closer here — the GTX 580 comes within spitting distance of the 6990, just under 12 frames per second slower at the maximum resolution, 4x AA. The divide grows whenever anti-aliasing is shut off, but you probably aren’t going to buy a $700 graphics card to scrimp on visual extras.

Real World Performance

Synthetic benchmarks are an accepted industry standard for checking out theoretical performance, but let’s take a look at how the Radeon HD 6990 fares when tackling real games.

First up are our Dirt 2and Far Cry 2benchmarks. Both games are graphically intensive, sporting intricately lit dynamic environments and a fair bit of action. Both resolutions for both tests are run at highest quality settings, with 4x anti-aliasing. At the 1920-by-1200 setting, the results are fairly close. In Dirt 2, the Radeon HD 6990 offers a mere four extra frames over the GTX 580. That climbs up to 27 frames in Far Cry 2, but with the total being just shy of 120 frames per second, you aren’t likely to notice the difference.

But if you’re buying a $700 graphics card, you really ought to be playing on a larger display. At the 2560-by-1600 level of our benchmarks, the Radeon HD 6990 takes advantage of that 4GB of DDR5 memory to maintain a much stronger lead — to the tune of 35% in Dirt 2, and 64% in Far Cry 2.

Our last two games tests are even more intensive. We’ll start with S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat. With an emphasis on dynamic shadows and tessellation, it’s the first test that manages to pull even the lofty Radeon HD 6990 into the double digits.

A result of 30 frames per second is generally considered playable. Both the GTX 580 and the Radeon HD 6970 manage to hit that mark at the highest level of our test, but if you’re playing on a 30-inch display with all of the bells and whistles cranked up, the Radeon HD 6990 remains an overall smoother experience.

The same goes for Just Cause 2, the most strenuous of our gaming tests.

In this case, the GTX 580 actually dips just under the playability line, and the Radeon HD 6970 is hanging on for dear life.

The Radeon HD 6990 tackles the title with aplomb, its twin GPUs managing to double the performance of Nvidia’s offering.

There’s a lot to consider when measuring the overall value and efficiency of the Radeon HD 6990. First, there’s the dollars per frames per second measure, which I’m summarized in this handy chart (click on it, to see the full sized version). In a nutshell, this compares the price of each card to the average frames per second achieved in our games tests. I included the results of the Radeon HD 6990 in its overclocked mode, for good measure.

The overall winner from a pragmatic perspective is the $350 Radeon HD 6970. It doesn’t offer up nearly as impressive performance as its pricier rivals, but it sits at a price that’s a bit more cost-effective. At a 1920-by-1200 pixel resolution, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 is technically the better deal. But once you’ve cranked up the resolution to 2560-by-1600, the Radeon HD 6990 offers a strong price to performance ratio — particularly when running at the overclocked BIOS setting mode.

Power, and Efficiency

Next, we’ll take a look at power efficiency. This one is going to be a little counter intuitive: when under a full load, the Radeon HD 6990 used more power overall. But it generally did so more efficiently. To arrive at these figures, I divided the power used under load by the average results for our games tests. At the 1920-by-1200 resolution, the Radeon HD 6990 and the GTX 580 are pretty much neck and neck. They’re both consuming substantially more power than the Radeon HD 6970, but they’re generating plenty more frames as a result. The picture becomes much better when we crank the resolution up to 2560-by-1600 pixels. Here the Radeon HD 6990 is the clear winner, making the most of its power consumption.

That the Radeon HD 6990 manages to post such impressive results while sitting at about 300W is really impressive. Switching over to the overclocked BIOS mode is a bit less energy efficient, but that much is expected.

And there you have it, the world’s fastest graphics card (for now). Truth be told, Nvidia will surely be prepping a dual-GPU response of its own, so even the well-heeled gamer shouldn’t dive headlong just yet. Of course, therein lies the rub of living on the bleeding edge. The Radeon HD 6990 will cost you a pretty penny, but its money well spent — if you’re running multiple large displays or at least one 30-inch monitor, and have the hardware and software to take advantage of what the card has to offer. If this doesn’t apply to you then by all means, check out the offerings further down on our Top Rated Graphics card chart. Both the AMD Radeon HD 6970 and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 570 offer an excellent gaming experience for we mere mortals.

Inside look: AMD Radeon HD 6990!

AMD Radeon HD 6990M

Notebookcheck

The AMD Mobility Radeon HD 6990M (or sometimes called ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6990) is a high-end graphics card for large laptops (17" and up). It is based on the desktop HD 6870 graphics card and there supports UVD3 decoding and Eyefinity+, albeit with overall reduced clock rates.

The 1120 Stream processors are still based on the "old" 5D architecture similar to the 5000 series. Therefore, the number of shaders is not comparable to the 1D cores of current Nvidia GPUs. The Tessellation performance should be improved (like the desktop 6800 series) with the new cards. The Stream processors can be used with DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.1, DirectCompute 11 and OpenCL. In particular, DirectCompute 11 and OpenCL can both allow the cores to be used for general computations like video transcoding.

The 3D performance should be similar to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 580M in the high end class of notebook graphics cards. Therefore, as of 2011, most modern and demanding games should run in full HD with highest settings fluently. Only Metro 2033 and Crysis (DX11) may need reduced detail settings.

The new UVD3 video decoder supports the decoding of MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, VC-1, MPEG-2, Flash and now also Multi-View Codec (MVC) and MPEG-4 part 2 (DivX, xVid) HD videos on the graphics card.

Furthermore, the HD 6900M series integrates an HD audio controller to transmit HD Audio (TrueHD or DTS Master Audio) over HDMI and DisplayPort (e.g. für Blu-Ray videos).

The AMD HD3D Technology offers support for Blu-Ray 3D and 3D displays (integrated and external). However, the solution is not as mature as Nvidia's 3D Vision.

Thanks to Eyefinity, the graphics chip is able to theoretically drive up to 6 monitors simultaneously. However, this only works if the laptop features enough DisplayPort outputs.

The high power consumption of the chip limits its use only in large laptops with good cooling solutions (e.g. Alienware M18x or Clevo X7200).
