AMD Radeon HD 6990 Dual-GPU 4GB
AMD has now introduced a new model of graphics card based dual-GPU, the Radeon HD 6990 card products. Although the actual graphics card with dual-GPU is not a new concept, both NVIDIA and AMD have created a tool, but it’s also not a graphics card which is commonly used.
Currently, AMD has the Radeon HD 5970, but this board has more than one year old and is now waiting for user replacement. And now AMD has had a replacement with the Radeon HD 6990 product delivery.
It will utilize Antilles two graphics processing units (built on 40nm manufacturing process technology) and a number of very dense use GDDR5 memory, 4 GB to be exact. Apparently, the frequency at which the two graphics processing unit has not been mentioned, but other things are clarified.
Total of 3072 stream processors are present, along with two 256-bit memory interface required (one for every 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM). There is also an 8-pin and 6-pin PCI Express power connector, plus CrossFireX connectors for dual-card configurations.
All this, along with four mini DisplayPort output and a DVI port, forming what is seen clearly as a video controller which is very long. The cooling module, using a single fan and backplate (for extra heat dissipation).
No pricing information is given, but given the model of single-GPU NVIDIA (GeForce GTX 580) sold for about $ 500, dual-Antilles will likely cost more than that.
