We saw it coming and we were aware about the leak of the specifications of AMD’s new jewel. The first fight between supporters of the two brands. Mind you, this should really interesting for fans of PC gaming. No doubt about it. We have the first benchmarks of the Radeon HD7990 and the inevitable comparisons we need to see.
The first thing to do is know what we are talking about. For this we make a brief comparison of the two giants of each of the manufacturers and then move to discuss the few results.
GEFORCE GTX 690
- 2 x GK104 GPU
- GPU 915 Mhz CORE
- 1.020 Mhz GPU Boost
- 3,072 Cores
- 4Ghz GDDR5 Memory
- Memory Clock 6008 MHz
- Bus 2 x 256-bit memory
- 2 x 6 Pin Connectors
- Dual-link DVI ports, HDMI, Display port.
- 2X GPU Tahiti XT
- CORE 1000 Mhz GPU
- GPU Boost –
- Cores 4096
- 6GB GDDR5 Memory

- 2X memory bus 384 bits
- 2 x 8-pin connectors
- Ports 4 x Mini-Display port, DVI
Just by the specifications you may draw your initial conclusions
The first results with synthetic benchmarks, as I have said before, for some of us is not a benchmark, we show the following results:
Firestrike 3DMark Performance
- AMD Radeon HD 7990: 11479 3DMarks
- NVIDIA GeForce Titan: 9863 3DMarks
- NVIDIA GeForce 690: 8859 3DMarks
3DMark Extreme Firestrike
- AMD Radeon HD 7990: 5854 3DMarks
- NVIDIA GeForce Titan: 5079 3DMarks
- NVIDIA GeForce 690: 4470 3DMarks
But what can give a true measure of differences is in the actual games and for this, courtesy of hardware.info, we already have a first sample of scores between different references of the moment.
Of course this has only just begun and we promise to be attentive and staying informed to any news about these giants.
