Building on the success of it’s predecessor the HD 5970, AMD has finally pulled the raps off its new game changing dual GPU, the Radeon HD 6990. Billed as the “world’s fastest graphics card” and for the price of $699 it had want to be. The specs read as follows: Core clock speed: 830MHz, Primate Rate: 4 prim / cllkm Shader Architecture VLIW4, Steam processors 3072ALU, Texture Units 192, frame buffer 4GB GDDR5, Memory width / speed: 256-bit / 5.0GBPS, Load board power <375W, display outputs 1 DVI and 4 mDP.
Featuring a core clock speed of 830MHz it can apparently be over clocked to about 880MHz with a memory clock speed of 1250MHz.
In terms of cooling its combines 20% more airflow and 8% additional thermal performance over its predecessor.
