Sapphire Radeon HD 6790 Review

maximum pc
12 July 2011
  • Summary: The card can fully support three displays, though if you want three 30-inch monsters, they’ll need DisplayPort 1.2 capability. In the end, Sapphire’s Radeon HD 6790 offers decent enough performance in its class, but bear in mind, for just a few bucks more, you can pick up an HD 6850.
  • Pros: A step up from the old HD 5770; just $150.
  • Cons: Uses more power than an HD 6850; needs to cost just a little less.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6790 review

13 May 2011
  • Conclusion: The SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6790 is a good card.  It’s a little power hungry, but that’s because it comes from a much higher-end card.  Performance really leaves nothing to complain about—most games are playable at mid-range quality settings at 1920×1080.  If you have an Eyefinity setup you’ll be able to play with some decent quality settings as well.  It’s definitely worth the extra $50 over the Radeon HD 6670 if you can afford it (and need the extra power).

  • Excerpt: If all those NDAs last month weren't already enough for everyone, we start the NDA run for April nice and early. With AMD having taken care of the high end segment with cards like the HD 6970 and HD 6990, while also taking care of that mid-range - high end segment with cards from the HD 6800 series, it was only a matter of time 'till we saw some more mid-range, cheaper cards hit the market.

  • Excerpt: We may be preparing for an imminent explosion of new graphics chips, but until then there are some juicy prices to be had on existing graphics chips.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6790

21 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Die Radeon HD 6790 ist in Punkto Leistung ohne Zweifel das perfekte Bindeglied zwischen Mittelklasse und Performanceriege der Radeon HD 6000-Serie, doch wird sie es in den eigenen Reihen schwer haben, sich zu behaupten. Schließlich fällt der Leistungssprung zur deutlich günstigeren HD 6770 respektive HD 5770 zu gering aus um Aufmerksamkeit zu erregen und den Preisabstand zu begründen.
