Epic. There’s just no other way to describe the AMD Radeon™ HD 6990M – the newest addition to the AMD Radeon family and the world’s fastest single mobile graphics processor. Make no mistake, it is the fastest. The AMD Radeon HD 6990M GPU was measured to be up to 25 percent faster than any other announced notebook enthusiast GPU1.
The launch of the AMD Radeon HD 6990M GPU follows on the heels of its desktop cousin, the AMD Radeon™ HD 6990, which is still theundisputed champ of discrete GPUs. As you can imagine, we’re pretty excited to hold the title for both form-factors – that’s no small feat in this industry!
But that’s not the only exciting news for notebook users. There’s more.
With the recently launched AMD A-Series Accelerated Processing Units (APU), AMD has set a new standard in graphics with AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics, which comes to life when an APU is paired with one of select discrete AMD Radeon™ GPUs. With AMD CrossFireX™ technology2, gamers can immediately notice higher resolutions and greater image quality on some of the most demanding DirectX® 11 titles today, including, “Dragon Age 2,” “DiRT 3” and “Shogun 2.”
What makes our graphics cards the best in the world? Our engineering and design teams strive to lead the world in innovation. And what technologies complement the core GPU? Well, AMD was the first company to ship products using GDDR5 memory back in 2008. GDDR5 offers more speed and higher bandwidth. We led the industry when we made this shift and to this day our decision to do so enables users to accomplish some of the most demanding tasks ever thought possible on notebooks.
With this core innovation, industry trendsetters are choosing AMD. In fact, Apple now offers AMD Radeon™ HD graphics in its new 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pro– their flagship notebooks designed for graphics professionals. Apple found that with AMD GPUs, users can expect to see up to 3x the performance over the previous generation’s graphics.3
Trailblazer, trendsetter, innovator. No matter how you describe AMD, as the PC gaming technology leader, we’re committed to providing the most innovative technology available today.
Stay tuned for the next epic innovation…
1. In tests conducted in AMD performance labs at 1920×1080, simulating mobile performance with a down-clocked desktop test system the AMD Radeon™ HD 6990M-based system was measured to be faster than the Nvidia GeForce 580M in the following benchmarks: Dragon Age 2 at 4AA/16AF (23.69% faster), Total War: Shogun 2 at 2xAA/16xAF (10.36% faster), Aliens vs. Predator at 2xAA/8xAF (13.19% faster), Batman: Arkham Asylum at 4xAA/16xAF (16.85% faster), ET: Quake Wars at 8xAA/16xAF (25.82% faster), Just Cause 2 at 0xAA/2xAF (14.22% faster), Left 4 Dead 2 at 0xAA/0xAF (8.30% faster), Metro2033 at AAA/4xAF (11.40% faster), The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena at 4xAA/8xAF (15.32% faster), Wolfenstein MP at 8xAA/16xAF (16.59% faster). Tests conducted with the following configuration: Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3, AMD Phenom™ II X4 965 (2.4GHz), 4GB (2GBX2GB), DDR3 system memory, Microsoft® Windows® 7 64-bit Ultimate operating system. Drivers: AMD Catalyst 8.861 RC1, NVIDIA Driver 275.33 WHQL.
2. AMD CrossFireX™ technology requires an AMD CrossFireX Ready motherboard, an AMD CrossFireX™ Bridge Interconnect (for each additional graphics card) and may require a specialized power supply.
3 Testing conducted by Apple, Inc. in February 2011 using preproduction 2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7–based 17-inch MacBook Pro units and preproduction 2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7–based 15-inch MacBook Pro units with AMD Radeon™ HD 6750M. 2.53GHz Intel Core i5–based 17-inch MacBook Pro systems and 2.66GHz Intel Core i7–based 15-inch MacBook Pro systems with NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M were production units. All systems were configured with 4GB of RAM. Tested at native resolutions using Portal v(4295)(400) and Half Life 2 Episode 2 v(4295)(420) with 4x antialiasing and high graphics quality. Half Life 2 Episode 2 timedemo test file: Storm. Portal timedemo test file: Mydemo1. MacBook Pro continuously monitors system thermal and power conditions, and may adjust processor speed as needed to maintain optimal system operation.
