Just look at it: Radeon 6990 defies sense, reason, benchmarks
According to benchmarks and reviews released after the embargo lifted last night, the Radeon 6990 is the fastest consumer graphics card in the world right now. It's also a depressingly brute force solution to a problem no-one had: how to squeeze two Radeon 6970's into one PCI slot. The answer: with solder, giant fans, and no hint of shame.
There's no question it's fast: Techradar are calling it "the world's fastest graphics card". But it's also going on sale for $700/£550 and it's approximately as noisy as a Chinook. It's during moments like these when the only option available is to throw your hands to the sky and scream "WHY! WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS. WHAT ARE YOU WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND."
Any super-hardcore PC builders planning to buy one? Care to explain "WHY! WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS?!"
