Default Re: Official Radeon HD 6990 reviews

Just went fast over couple of the reviews. Little disappointed about the 699 USD MSRP, was hoping the price is going to be more like $599.

Going to think about it if I should buy the card but it's my only upgrade option. The fact is I don't need any upgrade for my 1080p gaming resolution with HD 5970.

I like the extra 2GB GDDR5 on HD 6990 and about 2x better tessellation, probably the only reason I might upgrade.

I also like the dual BIOS switch, in position 1 it can run the HD 6990 at the same core speeds and voltages as the HD 6970.
