  1. Why? The card is old and discontinued.
  2. 6990 HD can run better than 7970 HD even if it is the previous version
  3. So an idiot who doesn't know anything(way to go.gheto. Errr getochink). And then a bunch of links..... And a 400 dollar board!!!!!

    obviously you can crossfire them. And any standard board with 2 2.0 x16 slots will work fine
  4. That's true but besides that what kind of moron uses beast 6990 with a cheap motherboard.A mobo with the 2 pcie 16 lane slots that leave a full empty card slot between. ie: Rampage III or MSI big bang xpower etc. Makes a huge difference to the heat and noise.

    I'd assume the kind who can't speak English. Just a guess though.

  7. why not use 2 7970's?

    They are quieter, cooler and draw much less power.

    The 6990's sound like a jet engine. A single 7970 is nearly as fast as a 6990 and since quad scaling is bad then 2 7970's in theory is fast anyway.
  8. 7970 HD works fine but clock slower

    They might clock slower but they are faster cards both per watt and per clock.

    Different architecture. You will be better off with 2 7970's by far.

    As I said 2 6990's won't scale as well as 2 7970's meaning the 7970's will give you higher framerates.
  10. Then I got scammed by Linus Tech Tips on youtube

    The 6990 is old tech. Two 6970s on one board. They are very powerful and very good. But only worth it if you own one. You seem to imply you think they are better then current cards because of clock speed. That makes no sense. big mistake

You shouldn't post if you rely on Google to translate. You really need someone to help if you want to post nonsense on an English forum.

    Dude... That was at the guy who said a 6990 sucked. The fact you can't speak English and are talking nonsense is totally separate

    What have you added to the thread besides calling me "getochink"? How 12 years old.
  20. Honestly, you are better off running a 7970 tri-fire setup...unless of course you already have 2 6990's. I'm waiting on my third 7970 to get shipped, but from what I have heard, the third card does a really good job at eliminating micro-stutter. you can get an XFX 7970 for about $330 each on amazon right now (after rebate) so the price difference between the two setups wouldn't be that much.

    Take a look at this link for a 3dmark score of a quadfire 6990 setup...

    This is what I get in 3dmark11 using a crossfire 7970 @ 1150 clock, 1550 memory...
