AMD challenge Nvidia on company blog – we are the fastest

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.

World's fastest ? AMD think so. nVidia don't agree.

“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?

    Well when your benching the 590’s don’t worry about that nice glow inside your case thats an added feature from nvidia oh & it will keep you warm too. Just get the benches out of the way fast you might not get a second chance to run them before your case is impaled in smoke…lol

    AMD has micro stuttering issues and low frame minimums in their Crossfire setups. many reviewers have complained about this. They also cheat in their test settings which is why nvidia continues to own the pro market, almost 85%.

    Which is faster: one HD 6990 (single card) or two HD 6970 (in CrossFireX)? Is the problem about ‘micro stuttering’ has been fixed at Catalyst 11.11?
