Sapphire Radeon HD 6990 4GB Technical Run Down

Making use of the Power: New Games


We know with just one card we're going to have an absolute bucket load of performance on offer, but with two the performance will simply be insane. The question is, how do you really make use of all this power that's on hand, though?


Eyefinity is one way with AMD actually promoting the five monitor setup quite strongly with this card. In portrait mode gaming is at a different level again than the standard landscape one and with five displays supported off a single card it's going to be the must have setup for gamers who demand the most impressive setups.




AMD has already announced four upcoming titles that will support the technology which include Dragon Age 2, Total War: Shogun 2, DiRT 3 and Dues Ex: Human Revolution.








All these games offer more than just Eyefinity support, though. In the above slides you can see other AMD features like CrossFireX and HD3D support offered alongside some beautiful DX 11 features.




For the first time I get the real sense that AMD is working with game companies to make sure their card runs better than the competition. This is so important with NVIDIAs "The Way It's Meant To Be Played" program. The inclusion of built in benchmarks which is mentioned above for Shogun 2 are also very important and it will be really interesting if this is a trend AMD follow.
