AMD and their graphics card AMD Radeon HD6990 recently made a challenge toward NVIDIA GTX 590 card in a new blog post.
Two of the most powerful graphic cards that was release for PC are dual-Cayman GPU powered AMD Radeon HD 6990 and the dual-GF110 GPU powered NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590. Both of these cards offer fast performance that puts any current-generation and single-GPU powered graphics card.
However, AMD claims that they are the fastest card basing from the FutureMark report that states, “The Radeon HD 6990 offers higher framerates more often than not. The cards were evenly matched in FarCry 2 and Just Cause 2, the GTX 590 came out on top in the Unigine Heaven benchmark, and in Lost Planet 2, but the Radeon HD 6990 led in 3DMark11, AvP, Metro 2033, and in F1 2010.” In fact, AMD called out directly to its competitor to prove and substantiate on the same claim.
The PC graphics space is a highly competitive business, but these two chief rivals made an interesting response and weekend discussion.
