AMD Radeon HD 7990 Graphics Card Review
Today's launch from AMD is a strange one for sure... in a way it is a brand new product, their first Dual GPU card in the 7000 series and the first since the 6990 in 2011. Having said that, as early as August last year we were reviewing a very similar product from PowerColor, their Devil 13 card which combined two 7900 series GPUs on a single PCB. Of course there is also ASUS custom dual GPU card too, the ARES2. Given this it seems surprising that AMD are treating this launch in pretty much the same way as any other... NDAs, Press breifings, etc.
So, re-launches aside, today we take the 7990 through a selection of real world gaming tests which include Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite, Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 3, StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, Battlefield 3, Tomb Raider, DOTA 2, SWTOR, F1 2012 and Borderlands 2. Mix that with the latest 3DMark, Heaven Benchmark, GPU computing, Media playback and all the usual power/thermal and overclocking tests... add frame latency and we have quite a lot to get through today.
