Just days after the announcement of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M as “the fastest notebook GPU ever” AMD presents the “world's fastest single graphics card for mobile devices.”As if the U.S. chip manufacturers just waiting to make contact with a counter attack the opponent in the nuts. Whether the shock is sitting or not but just pure marketing bubbling behind it?The warning is the subjectivity Inserted a disclaimer that opinions are annexed to the article from the soul of an AMD graphics card fans.
The AMD Radeon 6990M features
DirectX 11 support, AMD Eyefinity technology for an immersive gaming experience on up to six displays to a large image fused by the brilliant multi-display technology, as well as the sophisticated tessellation, thanks to DirectX 11 Mo is possible and AMD GPUs with a piece looks spectacular far as the low approaches to Nvidia. Fetishists of the three-dimensional space are also on their costs using the integrated AMD HD3D support for stereoscopic 3D. The UVD3 video engine supports 3D calculations and delivers better performance at post-processing tasks. Ideal for video editing. Who wants to get out to get more speed out of his unit and his notebook has room for a second graphics card, like the Alienware gaming notebooks and Schenker, who can with AMD CrossFireX dual graphics cards, different possible models with CrossfireX, and combine to double the performance. Nvidia SLI and this means that barely works differently. Who puts much emphasis on good sound that can, thanks to the HD audio controller Audio 7.1 surround via the DisplayPort or HDMI interface to query. The market for such devices is still relatively small. As far as the features that we come to power.
Technical performance, the Radeon 6990 fails to Crysis and Metro 2033 in the highest settings. Something for which you are not ashamed, since all single-GPU fail to present the two games. Dirt 3 can be, for example, at maximum settings with almost 40 seconds to play perfectly frames the liquid. Resident Evil 5 is even close to the 100 fps mark. As long as the value is about 30 frames per second, you have to do but worry and given a smooth gameplay without fear of dropouts in more complex loading sequences.
Compared to Nvidia GeForce GTX 580M
Both GPUs are
, like all newer models, manufactured on 40 nm in diameter. The AMD Radeon 6990M offers in comparison to Nvidia's GeForce GTX 580M is about 10 percent more power. Both graphics cards are designed for desktop replacement systems with good cooling. The high power consumption and associated waste heat can, in the worst case, damage from lack of cooling the GPU and the parts around the graphics card around permanently. The GTX 580M scores due to the high level of support for game manufacturers to continue to improve their games on Nvidia GPUs. In addition, the PhysX engine sending splinters effects that AMD graphics cards can not represent the approach. Tessellation, which lays out like this:
Radeon 6990M wins the race later than the price, because AMD are fundamentally better than the Nvidia. Specific pricing details are available from AMD yet, here we go by past experience from the competition times. Now if AMD or Nvidia graphics card delivers better is a matter of taste. Technically, the performance but AMD Radeon 6990M is for the next time the King on video heaven.
