AMD Radeon HD 6990 Pictured, Launch Imminent
Around the web today, various reviewers got to work posting carefully positioned photo's of the highly anticipated dual GPU solution from AMD, the Radeon HD 6990. The availability of information was strictly "what you see is what you get". No juicy details on on the underlying GPUs, technical specs, MSRP or launch date, but its safe to say that wi...

Obvious flamer comment that doesn't really deserve a response. But I've decided to respond anyways, since it's in extremely bad taste. Please don't start to start flaming wars, thanks.

12 inches! That will not fit in my case!

I the release of the 6990 drops the price of the 6970.

Just in time for DA2 lol.

But seriously, I wonder how these dual GPU card will perform and how much they will cost.

Polygon February 28, 2011 05:33 PM

I guesstimate $600 or more and it will outperform the 580 especially at high res. New high performance champ? Possibly!

Curious to see if this will be another +$700 card or if they can reasonably price it...

well, if one 6970 is 300 and spare, i dont see them going below 600 for it.

I bet it will be just like the 5970's at the 600 mark initially.

What I'm really hoping for is that it will bring down the prices of the the 5970's like they did to the 4870x2 :)

Stop comparing the 6990 to GTX580

its a dual vs a single.
GTX480 was emberrasing when it caught up the the dual gpu 5970 in like few benchmarks


With rumours about NVIDIA planning itís own big event at PAX East 2011, possibly related to itís own dual GPU GTX 590, March 2011 could prove to be one of the biggest GPU powerhouse showdowns of the year.
Thats when we compare
