XFX has launched the AMD Radeon HD 6790 in India, bringing its XFX Dual Fan design to AMD’s top-end mainstream card. The cooling system is more efficient, generates less noise, and is well-suited for overclocking. It uses heat pipes to transfer heat away, and features the XFX Air Flow Bracket, which provides increased exhaust airflow. The XFX Radeon HD 6790 is available at an estimated street price of Rs. 9,000 in the country, with a 3 year warranty.
Calling it the ‘most advanced graphics card in its class’, XFX promises the card will bring your gaming to a serious level. It recommends two XFX Radeon HD 6790 GPUs in CrossFire, which will apparently offer performance comparable with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 570, at a much lower price. XFX has put a variety of ports on the 6790, from DVI, HDMI and mini-DisplayPort, convenient for a variety of configurations, and AMD Eyefinity setups.
