HD 6990 to launch March 8

Written by Fudzilla staff


A week ahead of GTX 590
According to Donanimhaber, AMD will launch its dual-GPU Antilles card on March 8, some six days before Nvidia’s GTX 590.

The HD 6990 will replace the venerable HD 5970, which is still the fastest graphics card on the market, although it was introduced in November 2009. It will pack two Cayman XT cores clocked at 830MHz and 4GB of GDDR5 memory. Overclocked versions are also in the works.

There’s still no word on the price, but it will obviously be the priciest, hottest and fastest graphics card on the market, at least until Nvidia introduces the GTX 590, which is based on the bigger, pricier and faster GF110 core.

830MHz? That card will be ~50% faster than 5970. Or ~60% faster than a 580. Hard to believe. :o
Probably it will be the fastest card for 2011.

Even if the performance is similar, you know the 590 will cost just so much more.
Here's to the 6990.

"bigger, pricier and faster GF110 core"

You forgot to mention "hotter, less efficient and generally shittier".

Nshittia - it's in the name.

Well I think that kinda goes without saying. ;-)

only 50mhz slower then the hd6970(less then 6%), and with the same amount of shaders. That's quit impressive.

nvidia's not going get away with doing the same thing to the gtx590.

nvidia will use full 512 cores per gpu, so thats 1024 cuda cores...
But one GTX 580 uses 244 W , so 2 would use 488 W.
GTX 580 is 772 core clock so i dont get how low clocks will be on GTX 590, like 450 lol

1st post on Fudzilla! I just read a news from cebit, AMD actually preparing another beast call HD 6990 OC, with 880mhz & Power Tune up to 450W :o ! Yes 450W, furthermore, it still reserve some overclocking space for hardcore user. Benchmark show that "Standard" 6990 is 67% faster than GTX580, 6990OC is another 8% more...cant believe AMD could make it in such impressive numbers, Keep it up!
You might not able to read chinese, but you can read the Monster figure:

Or simply put, 2x gtx570 in the gtx590 and 2x 6970 for the 6990...and guess who is the fastest among the two... ;-)
