Sapphire Radeon HD 6990 4GB Video Card in AUSUM Mode - Test System Setup and 3DMark 11

We flick Sapphire's HD 6990 4GB over to AUSUM mode, close our eyes and power on the system. We've survived to tell you about the extra grunt on offer!

We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, ASRock, Kingston, Mittoni, Noctua and Corsair.

 

With the card now running at 880MHz on the core it's time to see what kind of performance boost we're able to achieve from the card. We've got a very similar line up to what you've seen in our other Sapphire HD 6990 4GB review, with the only difference being we've removed the HD 6970 by itself.

 

Let's get started!

You can see straight away with that core bump the performance increase is clear. Overall you see that the performance now is a lot closer to the HD 6970 CF setup. Performance is actually near identical.
