It was quite obvious the AMD dual-GPU solution, the HD6990 was going to make it out soon, but MSI have one-upped AMD themselves by announcing their version of the 6990 first. The card has some insane specs (though not as insane as I expected them to be) and is expected to be the fastest performing card in the market today.
World's fastest GPU – for the time being
Take a look at the features:
- Two HD6900-series processors
- 4GB GDDR5 memory
- Four mini DisplayPort 1.2s
- One DVI-D port
- Support for MSI Afterburner and Kombuster
While the MSI card’s clock speeds aren’t known to us yet, the reference card is expected to carry a 830MHz Core Clock speed and a 1250MHz Memory Clock speed. Since MSI’s pretty much is a reference design card too, expect to see similar clocks.
So yeah, here’s the world’s fastest graphics card, people. Well until the NVIDIA GTX590 shows up, at the very least.
