March 8 Launch Date for Radeon HD 6990

The the consumer graphics industry is about to see yet another round of competition between top market players AMD and NVIDIA in March, with reports suggesting that the red team (AMD) has chosen March 8 as the launch date of its Radeon HD 6990 graphics card. NVIDIA's response, the GeForce GTX 590 is slated for sometime later in March, as well. AMD is said to be finalizing the SKU, and it should be launched by partners on the 8th of next month. The Radeon HD 6990 is a dual-GPU "CrossFire on a stick" solution, in which two AMD Cayman GPUs with 2 GB of memory each, work in tandem.

That is a possibility since extreme high-end cards are mostly consumed by Homo sapiens who masturbate to numbers and think decked out Mac pros are too cheap.

Is it just me, or have you been dumped or something? Most of your posts reeks of sarcasm and annoyance.

Fair enough. So your going to pay about 600 or 700 bones to play 2 games at a resolution you no longer support?

Like I said at this time this card is pointless. I really wish it wasn't but the fact of the matter it is. That is of course you are running like 3 monitors. Then its perfect.

i am not i am however not going to bad mouth the card i have always thought they were cool all the way back to the 7950GX2 i had. the pair of 3870X2's i set up for my bro's rig run 1920x1080 very well to this day. so is a $600 card worth it if it lasts? 3870X2 came out in 2008 and still plays all the games in 2011. i got another for $80 recently so a cheap performance boost.
