AMD are issuing a challenge to nvidia, saying that their HD6990 is the fastest graphics card on the planet. Dave Erskine has used his company blog page to issue this to AMD, demanding that Nvidia justify their claim to have produced the world’s fastest graphics card with the GTX590.
AMD are using 3dmark 11 with the score of X3303 points as their claim to the fastest position. Erskine wants to find out how nvidia are claiming they have the worlds fastest card as no proof has emerged they have it.
“We combed through their announcement to understand how it was that such a claim could be made and why there was no substantiation based on industry-standard benchmarks, similar to what AMD did with industry benchmark 3DMark 11, the latest DirectX 11 benchmark from FutureMark,” Erskine says.
“So now I issue a challenge to our competitor: prove it, don’t just say it. Show us the substantiation. Because as it stands today, leading reviewers agree with us that the AMD Radeon HD 6990 sits on the top as the world’s fastest graphics card.”
KitGuru says: So how do you really rate the world’s fastest video card? with 3DMark benchmark tests, Unigine Heaven benchmark results or via a game engine test?
