    New and notable graphics card manufacturer from the east, ColorFire, is ready with its Radeon HD 6790 graphics card, the Colorful associate brand is starting with a non-reference design card like every other AIB. Despite making some necessary cost-cutting in terms of components, ColorFire didn't compromise on features such as dual-BIOS, hardware-based voltage control, and a powerful-looking cooler. Further, ColorFire's card needs just one 6-pin power connector, contradicting reports that HD 6790 needs two.

    ColorFire implemented a 4+1 phase VRM using standard chokes and MOSFETs, but saw to it that at least high-grade Japan-made solid-state capacitors are put in place of POSCAP capacitors. The cooler uses an aluminum fin heatsink to which heat is fed by three heat pipes. In all likelihood, ColorFire will stick to its existing markets of Asia and Europe.

    Hm only 1 6pin, so I guess there will be some 6790 models that will have one and others that will have 2?

    colorfires getting serious lol. They clearly arent playing around are they lol

    Searching forums that haven't had a recent nvidia/amd naming confusion thread then playing hero gets you no points.

    Wait for a review. Read a chart. Make a choice.

    Nah it only gets confusing when they turn Algebra on us and whip out the: XTX, XT, XT PE, XL, Pro, GTO, GT, SE.

    As long as they aren't in fractions I think I can manage..."This just in, AMD releases the HD=6890XT/6790XTX!!"...aww crap.

    If this is slower than a 6850, well isn't the price higher than the 6850?

    The 6790 is supposed to have an MSRP >$150. The 5850s I've seen have all been more than $150

    Wow! I didn't any to start showing up today! Perhaps the stock clocked 6790s will use 1 6pin while factory OC'ed 6790s will require 2?
