Over a year ago, Nvidia released its dual-processor GeForce GTX 690, which was the fastest discrete graphics card available at that moment. AMD, the only competitor to Nvidia on the market of gaming graphics products, was unable to respond to that release as quickly as many of us expected. Indeed, the wait was so long that AMD’s partners developed and rolled out their own versions of dual-processor solutions with AMD’s flagship Tahiti XT chips: PowerColor’s DEVIL13 HD7990 and ASUS’s ROG ARES II (with a liquid cooling system). Finally, at the end of April this year AMD itself unveiled the reference variant of its dual-processor card. It is called Radeon HD 7990.
Coupled with the recent arrival of the GeForce GTX Titan, we’ve got three premium-class products priced at $1000 each. We are going to compare them all in this review after taking a closer look at the AMD Radeon HD 7990 2x3GB.
