If anything it's the processor bottlenecking the 2 6990s.

Yes.

You will need to be running some pretty high clocks (4.20Ghz +) if you're after full utilization

agreed, the Thuban chips arnt as powerful as you may think, and Intel core i7 970 ought to be enough for that monster of a card

It seems like nearly any processor would bottleneck 2x 6990's unless it's at 4.5GHz or higher.


Then again, I may be COMPLETELY off here.

If games utilised all 6 cores and you had a 4ghz+ overclock it would probably would still be a bottleneck

Yes, it would take a first gen core i7 at around 4.2 or 4.4 GHZ to not bottleneck, possibly even requiring a Sandy Bridge at around 4.5 to 4.8 which is easy for those.

There is a big bottleneck on your hard drive.
Get an SSD.

If you're getting 2x 6990's, you had better have something a lot bigger than that single 28" Hanns-G. Lol
