AMD’s behemoth takes the crown, yet again.
Well, now let’s get down to business and see what the fastest graphics card in the world is capable of. Our testbed consists of an Intel Core i7-2600K, Kingston HyperX T1 4GB DDR3-2200MHz memory, Gigabyte P67A-UD7 motherboard, Kingston V-Series 64GB SSD with Windows 7 Ultimate running on it; all of which is powered by a Cooler Master 1200W Silent Pro Gold PSU. For comparisons I have selected the AMD HD 6970, MSI R6950, Zotac GTX 580 and 570 AMP! Edition.
Well, no surprises there, the HD 6990 trounces everything in everything. Metro 2033 and StarCraft II are very dependent on the CPU as well, which explains the lower discrepancy between the HD 6990 and GTX 580.
