Asus, a leading Taiwan-based manufacturer of computer products, has unveiled a new graphics card, which uses dual cores on one printed circuit board, doubling the power while maintaining streamlined energy draw requirements.
Asus exclusive Voltage Tweak, pushes the HD 6970 PC card to run at up to 1245 MHz for gaming performance in the highest possible resolutions and with all effects and details turned up to maximum, a statement said.
Based on AMD Antilles GPU architecture, the HD 6990 offers hardcore PC gamers and DIY builders the fastest dual-core graphics card ever produced using AMD technology. It represents the pinnacle of the Windows 7 and DirectX 11-optimized Northern Islands series of GPUs from AMD, the statement added.
The Asus HD 6990 comes at 830MHz and the exclusive Voltage Tweak overvolting utility allows users to push clock speeds by as much as 50per cent with adequate cooling.
The two cores run in 2-way CrossFireX engaged by default on one board, eliminating inter-GPU latency and ensuring the fastest possible performance with the most bandwidth ever achieved on a single-board AMD-based card. Two HD 6990 cards can be put together for instant quad CrossFireX, the statement said.
