Amd Radeon HD 7990

We test out AMD’s brand new Amd Radeon HD 7990 graphics card. You’ve been introduced to the dual-GPU product under the codename Malta, and now it’s available to the public.

Amd Radeon HD 7990  The company is going about it in typical AMD fashion, with two Tahiti XT2 GPUs and good, quiet cooling. This analysis will cover the product, the architecture, the benchmarks, and the FCAT measurements during a given time period.

As such, I purposefully began with the phrase “It’s been a long time,” as AMD has waited a very long time, probably far too long, to release this product. You may recall that in December of 2011 AMD released their Radeon HD 7990 graphics card. In June of last year, the GHz version of the 7990 card was made available. Since then, AMD has been rebranding “better” batches of Tahiti XT GPUs as Tahiti XT2. This change was beneficial since, when combined with the correct voltage, it allowed for clock frequencies of up to 1050 MHz (925 MHz is reference for the standard 7990). This model’s name is GHz edition, and it features a Boost mode, similar to what NVIDIA has included in its 650, 660, 670, and Titan graphics cards. Under ideal circumstances, the R7970 GHz version may “boost” from 1000 MHz to 1050 MHz’s To do this, the board’s power (maximum power draw) must be sufficient; otherwise, the processor will operate at 1 GHz (or the lowest frequency allowed by the board). If you’re wondering why this introduction to R7970 GHz is so long, it’s because. Important information: AMD released the R7990 with two Tahiti XT2 GPUs (also known as R7970 GHz GPUs) today.

In fact, you read that correctly: the new 2013-era AMD Radeon HD 7990 employs chip designs from December 2011. This means the R7990 uses not one but two boosting-capable Tahiti XT graphics processing units (codename: Malta). AMD’s GPUs are set at a base clock of 950 MHz, with a boost allowance of up to 1 GHz. That’s 50 MHz slower than the 7970 GHz edition’s minimum requirement. Memory speeds remain unchanged at 6 Gbps across two 384-bit memory interfaces. Three gigabytes of video RAM will be allocated to each GPU (GDDR5). When announced, the Radeon HD 7990 GHz model will cost around €800–€900. This means it will go head-to-head with products like the GeForce GTX 690 and Titan. You will be quite pleased with today’s outcomes. Where it counts (in very recent games), the Radeon HD 7990 GHz edition will be lightning quick. As part of our benchmark sets suite and configuration, we’ve included FCAT (Frame Capture Analysis Tool) measurements, so we can examine micro-stuttering as well.

In any case, let’s give the Radeon HD 7990 a glowing review, since it has excellent gaming performance, a wide range of useful extras, and a frame buffer that’s 2x3GB and GDDR5 in size. Let’s take a look at this member of the Island family, whose GPUs were created under the codename “Tahiti XT2,” and whose product is called “Malta.” To continue with the technological background before moving on to The Clash of the Titans, please proceed to the next page.

To AMD, Malta Is Now Radeon HD 7990

Amd Radeon HD 7990 We can’t believe how quickly time has passed. Recently, we released AMD Radeon HD 7990: Promising Performance, Paper-Based Benchmarks. Started up approximately two years ago. In contrast to today, the market for graphics cards has changed dramatically over the years. In its first performance test against Nvidia’s Fermi-based GeForce GTX 580, AMD’s brand-new Graphics Core Next architecture completely destroyed the competition, including the company’s own Radeon HD 6970.

As for a dual-GPU card, one based on two Tahiti GPUs from the 7970 was said to be on the horizon. We hung around. So we waited.

After a year passed, no official Amd Radeon HD 7990 was released. Instead, the board partners cautiously explored the premium market. Power Color’s dual-Tahiti solution was the first of its kind, although it was extremely power-hungry, noisy, and took up three expansion slots. It also required three eight-pin auxiliary power connectors. The same thing happened with HIS, except that the company gave us early access to a few prototypes before abandoning plans to release a dual-GPU solution. Finally, Asus entered the fray with its own liquid-cooled card, though it was prohibitively expensive and available to just a select few. In Asus’ ROG Ares II: Four Dual-GPU Graphics Cards, Compared, we compared all of them and concluded that the Nvidias GeForce GTX 690, albeit being a bit slower in our benchmarks, was the better buy over the Radeons.


Could you tell me if the AMD Radeon 7990 is a good graphics card for gaming?

The HD 7990 managed an incredible 90.2 frames per second at Ultra resolution with 4x anti-aliasing. For Dirt Showdown, the average frame rate was 112fps when the graphics quality was set to Medium, and it was 156.9fps when set to Ultra Low. At Ultra settings in Crises 2, it managed 39.6 frames per second.
