[TPU] AMD prepares to release HD 6790 - Page 5

post #41 of 64
So this card should be on-par with the GTX 460 768mb?

This card looks like the 5830 all over again.

I really don't like the fact that it needs two six pin power connectors. This will be a turn off for a lot of budget oriented people.

It's not. The problem with the Radeon HD 5830 was its price and the performance it delivered. This card should be a tiny bit faster than the Radeon HD 5830 and is being priced at $130. At that price, it's untouchable.

Also, don't know why people are complaining about two PCI-E 6-pin connectors being a requirement when the GTX 460 768MB requires two and this delivers the same performance. This is a good $20 cheaper, and since the GTX 460 768MB is being replaced by the 550 Ti, this means it's much better bang for buck. The Radeon HD 5770 is only 5% slower than the GTX 550 Ti, and this should only be 5-10% slower than the Radeon HD 6850. This will be one of the best bang-for-buck cards to ever come out, similar to the 4850.

It's screwed up for anyone with some common sense and anyone planning on building/buying a system who hasn't been "in the know" about GPUs for a while (this counts for the majority of people who might/will buy this card, most likely through OEM PCs). Not everyone has hours a day to be reading about GPUs and what's better than what (I had no interest in this for a while before I got back into PC building a few years back), but even anyone who is familiar with at least some of AMD/ATI GPUs and their numbering schemes will still be confused.

Most of the time whenever they used 9s in their model numbers was when it was one of their top end cards (69XX/5970/2900/X1950). The 67 in the start of the name already indicates a low-end card, what the hell does the '90' represent in the model number that this card has in common with other cards ending in '90', high power consumption (that's all I can think of that it will have, performance is gonna be crap either way vs higher end cards)? Whatever way you look at it, it's not a good thing for AMD to exaggerate this, if that's the case.

P.S. And I very much doubt it'll ever compete with a GTX 460, even the 768MB version. GTX 460 768MB is about on-par with a 6850, both cards have fallen in price and can be had for not much money (while being very overclockable even out of the box). Since this is a newer card, stores will charge premium prices regardless of its actual value/performance. If AMD are planning to imitate Nvidia's crap card and release a GTX 550 competitor then good luck to them, it will be worthless to the majority of users. HTPC users/OEMs will need lower wattage cards than a GTX 550 and if not they would use cards with better performance which stores/suppliers already have prenty of in stock (GTX 460s).

And a GTX 550 "replaces" nothing. For lower power usage a GTS 450 is better, for better performance per watt the GTX 460 is way better (and I'm not even mentioning some great AMD cards). You would in fact need to underclock it to compete with either.

No, a '3' or a '4' stands for low end. (As in X300, X1300, 2400, 3450, 4350, 5450)

They don't have to "be in the know". They can compare numbers.
How does the 6790's name prevent someone from doing a simple comparison of numbers?

6790 is higher than 6770, so it is faster than the 6770. Fact.
6790 is a lower number than 6850, so it is slower than the 6850. Fact.

Nothing is screwed up for anybody except dyslexics who might confuse it with the 6970.
