Radeon HD 7990 And GeForce GTX 690: Bring Out The Big Guns

Full Load with GPGPU

Pushing each card's twin GPUs to 100% utilization is easy with one bitcoin mining session per chip. PowerColor's Devil13 HD7990 enjoys the largest cooling reserves, while HIS' 7970 X2 can't quite keep up.

Not surprisingly, EVGA's GeForce GTX 690 wins the noise contest once again, even in light of temperatures that peak a little higher than we'd like to see. As we mentioned before, though, there aren't many people who plan to use their graphics cards like this (particularly a GK104-based board, which doesn't deliver compelling compute performance), so full-load noise should rarely be an issue.
