When AMD and NVIDIA free a novel batch of following-propagation computer graphic CPUs, gaps generally form in their various production masses as the total top-to-bottom line-up of novel products is fleshed out over time. When novel GPUs are brought in, they commonly offer raised functioning at a given cost point, which repels the price of corresponding old-generation products downward.
From time to time the provide and necessitate of both the novel and old products will result in a more prominent than wanted cost disparity amongst the novel components and the more previous ones that even remain on the market. It’s those prominent cost disparities that are where product gaps show.Such is the case with AMD’s stream product stack. At the exceed of the line-up, AMD has the Radeon HD 6900 and 6800 series components, but the lower-end of the market is even covered by Radeon HD 5000 series components.
Dismissing the elite staying Radeon HD 5800 series components that will finally sell out AMD aims to fill that comparatively prominent cost gap amongst those 2 models with the novel card we’ll be showing you here today, the Radeon HD 6790.This 1st official member of the Radeon HD 6700 series isn’t totally novel (we say official since the Radeon HD 6770, which is a re-branded 5770 is useable to OEMs). In fact, it is grounded on the very same "Barts" GPU powering the Radeon HD 6800 series.
A elite functional stops within the GPU accept been disabled, nevertheless, ultimately resulting in a let down executing, but definitely more affordable, DirectX-11 category GPU. We’ve got the full specs, details and pics beneath. We'll then assume a expect at functioning on the pages ahead.We’re not going to harp on the physical assigns of the Radeon HD 6790 we tested for a pair of reasons. 1st off, granting to AMD, the card you assure pictured here will never see the light of day.
