AMD Unveils Fastest GPU Yet, the AMD Radeon HD 6990

From AMD Radeon HD 5970 to AMD Radeon HD 6990. There's a new speed-demon that's ruling the roads of the graphic card highway.

AMD is showing no signs of slowing down. Even though their Radeon HD 5970 holds the title for the world’s fastest graphics card, here they are at it again as they dethrone their own brood with the AMD Radeon HD 6990 (Antilles), a speed-demon packed with massive features including a 4GB of GDDR5 and an 830MHz core clock speed. And with a dual-BIOS to boot, you can rev up the clock speed up to 880MHz, which in turn raises your electricity bills to a whole new level.

Despite being the fastest, crictics don’t particularly revere the AMD Radeon HD 6990 due to its power consumption (375W TDP), the noise it emits while running, plus the ridiculous price tag of $699. There’s also the bane of the practicality of the card as most games, even at high settings, don’t particularly need that much graphic fire power.

Hit the break to check the complete specs of the AMD Radeon HD 6990!

AMD's Radeon HD 6870 and HD 6850 graphics cards are here, but they might not be what you expect. Read and check out the sites who already got their hands on the new graphics cards.

AMD’s Radeon HD 6870 and 6850 are here, but albeit they sound as if they can do better than the lauded Radeon HD 5870 and 5850, they are not really what they seem. For only $180, you can already have Radeon HD 6850 that sports 960 stream processor, 775MHz core clock, 1GB DDR5, 1GHz at effective rate. While you can have the Radeon 6870 at $240 which features 1120 stream processor, and 900/1,050MHz clocks.

A collection of reviews put them a bit behind the finest, and states that they can keep up with the rest. Some papers say that they can run better than their predecessors, but a card full of ports is probably not fit for your next HTPC.

If you want a full review, you can hit up the links after the skip.
