Introduction

Sapphire Radeon HD 6990 4GB Video Card Review 02 | TweakTown.com

I really thought it would be more of a race to the release of a Dual GPU card. We heard rumors that NVIDIA would have something at CeBIT, but that's come and gone and nothing was really announced or mentioned. It was similar for the AMD camp, but over that time we knew that the card was coming out within the second week of March.

Instead it seems the NVIDIA Dual GPU card has gone a little quiet and the AMD offering has arrived. It's quite possible that NVIDIA want to make sure they're offering a faster card than the AMD one and it's going to take this card to be released before they know exactly what kind of performance they're aiming for.

We're going to be getting into the performance side of things quite quickly here, because if you haven't already seen it, we did quite a large article that covers all the technical information regarding the new model. There we also included some pictures of the Sapphire card and spoke about some of the other extras that we're seeing from this series. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend that you check it out here as it will give you some of the more technical information regarding the specifications and a much closer look at everything on the card.

Because we did this article, we're just going to look at some of our own pictures of the card and then we'll have a quick look at the specifications with GPU-Z and recap the clocks that are on offer.
