Triple Monitor Gaming: GeForce GTX 590 vs. Radeon HD 6990 - PCSTATS.com Triple Monitor Gaming: GeForce GTX 590 vs. Radeon HD 6990
Thu, Jun 09 2011 | 4:03PM | Filed under: Video Cards| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

With the release of the dual-GPU AMD Radeon HD 6990, closely followed by the competing Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 we saw graphics card performance reach new heights. With bandwidth throughput in excess of 300GB/s, these cards can consume more power than entire computer systems. Moreover, the two GPUs on board of either product are so complex that combined make up for 11,000 million transistors. By utilizing three monitors games can become roughly 3x more demanding as the graphics card is required to render an overwhelmingly higher number of pixels. Whereas we commonly test graphics cards at single monitor resolutions of 1680x1050 (22”), 1920x1200 (24”) and 2560x1600 (30”), today we are taking these and adding two more LCD monitors for effective resolutions of 5040x1050, 5760x1200 and 7680x1600.
