Got a spare grand kicking about and wonder what to do with it? Just read the review of the HD6990 and wonder how it would do in Crossfire? Read on...

very nice - but however rich i think i am, i cannot justify paying over £1000 for two cards, just for an upped framerate.

although, on their own, they handle the benches very well, considering that they are dual gpu cards.

i think AMD have also overpriced them, as they offer no new technology. for that price i would expect DX12 (whatever/whenever that may be)

Wow it might be expensive but crossfire performance is insane though that's a hell of a lot of money for two graphics card regardless of performance.

Indeed, most previous attempts were nothing short of spectacular.. when it comes to failing... at everything. Tom, you look tired, mate. Go get some sleep, I'll drop by your office tomorrow so we can start sorting this mess out. (I just love Vice City )

Alrighty. Finished reading both, now time to patiently wait for 590 results, then for results from other manufacturers' cards, on both sides.

Should be a nice march/april.

Dissapointed, those 4 GPU cores have so much more to give, if only that 3Ghz i7 used in the review would push them.

I say stick a 4Ghz+ in and run a few tests again and you'll see a difference then.

I really respect your honesty tom which makes this review spot on and it seems to me that neither Nvidia or AMD care anymore about noise levels because most of these new cards sound like hairdryers when overclocked so noise is no longer an issue and if you wish to OC these cards you need to move on to custom cooling exactly like the CPU market.
