Today, AMD inserts its novel Radeon HD 6790, a card planned to fill space amongst the Radeon HD 5770 and Radeon HD 6850. As such, this board's natural competitor is Nvidia's GeForce GTX 460 768 MB.The funny thing is, Nvidia lately declared that the GeForce GTX 460 768 MB is about to be stopped. GeForce GTX 550 Ti arrived just a elite weeks ago, intended as its replacement in the space amongst the GeForce GTS 450 and GeForce GTX 460 One gigabyte.
This graphics CPU is constructed utilizing a cut-down RV870 (Barts) ASIC 1st seen throughout the Radeon HD 6800-series establish. totally boasted, this graphics CPU has fourteen SIMD engines, each with 4 texture units and sixteen stream CPUs. Each stream CPU, in turn, hosts 5 ALUs (AMD concerns to these as stream cores). In the Radeon HD 6790, 4 of the SIMD engines are invalided, resulting in a entire of 40 texture units and 800 stream cores.
When it arrives to pixel end product, the Radeon HD 6790 expends 2 of Bartsí four render back-ends, each controlling 8 full-color ROP units, adding up to 16 total. Those of you companion with the Radeon HD 5770 may notice that this card contributions the exact like number of stream cores, texture units, and ROPs.From here, Still, things get interesting. Four sixty-four-bit storage controllers yield an aggregate 256-bit storage interface.
This is unaltered from the Radeon HD 6800-series, and is doubly as potent as the 128-bit storage interface on the Radeon HD 5770. furthermore, the Radeon HD 6790 sports an 840 MHz core and 1050 MHz GDDR5 storage. 1s again, this is very close to the Radeon HD 5770ís 850 MHz core and 1200 MHz storage oftennesses.
