AVADirect Now Offers ATI Radeon HD 6990 Graphics Cards


AVADirect has added the long awaited ATI HD Radeon 6990 graphics card to our website. This card boasts double the specifications of the previous the ATI HD 6980 card released, and continues to offer Eyefinity support, improved shader model 5.0, and DirectX 11. A jaw-dropping 4GB of shared video RAM is definitely appealing to those who follow the GPU wars closely. It's important to keep in mind that the HD 6990 is a two-in-one, dual GPU in a single card. Driver support has improved greatly from AMD within the past year, and price points continue to grow increasingly competitive to their Nvidia competitors. What truly makes this card one to consider is the lowered nanometer size, dropped to 40nm which should technically reduce the amount of heat generated by the card itself. (A known issue with most ATI graphics cards) The overall 150W consumption of the card backs up that theory further, and will leave end-users enticed further. For you "ease of use" fanatics, HD 7.1 surround sound can be routed through the HDMI port creating the ultimate HD experience for media center use. I personally cannot wait to see the direction AMD and Nvidia will take a year from now. Performance becomes tighter, and prices are more competitive than ever. Keep up the good work ATI! Now it's Nvidia's move. We will list more brands of ATI's HD 6990 as they become available.
