According to some commentators the month of March will be a period full of proposals for new video cards with a very particular market segment, namely that of multimedia games. In fact, the month began well enough with the solutions of AMD’s Radeon HD 6990 series, or Antilles, with the possibility of dual use technology with two chips on the same PCB.La Cayman AMD’s new proposal, thanks to presence of 4 GB of RAM on GDDR5 is capable of guaranteeing performance of certain interest, in fact, according to figures provided by the manufacturer, the new graphics solution offers for 3072 stream processors clocked at around 830 MHz GPU section , Reaching a value of 5000 MHz for the memory advantage of a 256 bit bus: all at a price of just under € 600, or 599 to be precise.
AMD to try to offer a solution with good performance, but decided to use working frequencies lower than the previous solution, namely the Radeon HD 6970: in essence, is very well say that the choice of AMD can be a good compromise. However, the manufacturer, while recognizing a dissipation factor of no less than 375 W is located near the physical limits of the PCI Express x16, tried to use a dissipation system that can monitor the entire system.
In fact, AMD has set up a system so a central fan to cover the two chips and Cayman, by information from the same manufacturer, the cooling system so designed would help to also overclock the components.
The overclock is guaranteed through this Dual Bios with overdrive.
The graphics board supports up to five video outputs, four out of the DisplayPort interface and one on DVI.
With this capability, the Radeon HD 6990 is a candidate for managing multi-monitor configurations.
