AMD’s new HD6790 has already proven to be a great performer for the gaming masses, delivering HD gaming capabilities without breaking the bank. Today we are looking at the new XFX HD6790 Edition which features a lovely, custom made dual fan cooler.
As we have said before, AMD are marketing the HD6790 at the 1080p gaming masses, with ‘balanced performance and price’ being the main focal point. They used a similar strategy with the last gen HD5770 and it was a big seller for AMD partners. If you are building a new media center to pair up with a large High Definition television and don’t want to make too many compromises, is this the ideal purchase?
