Back in 2012, NVIDIA revealed their monster graphics card, the GeForce GTX 690 which would cost gamers a whopping $999. Now it looks like it’s AMD’s turn to turn things up with their latest GPU, the Radeon HD 7990 which like the GTX 690, is definitely not for the casual gamer. Priced at $1,000 and available in about two weeks’ time, this is a GPU that definitely has a lot of power behind it as the company is claiming that the GPU will have no problem running games at 4k resolution and maximum detail setting!
The Radeon HD7990 will feature over 8 terraflops of processing power, 8.6 billion transistors, 6GB of RAM, PCI Express 3.0 support and a new cooling system which supposedly will be 3dB quieter than the NVIDIA Titan, and 10dB softer than the GTX 690. Like we said above, this GPU is definitely not for the casual gamer, and while 4k resolutions have yet to become the standard, we guess the hardcore gamer looking to future-proof their gaming rig might see this as a worthwhile investment.
