Now, there has been much speculation in the Mid-range video card battlefield and today we see the perfect rival for the disputed Nvidia's Geforce GTX 550 Ti, which was released a few weeks back. AMD's counter for such a move is the Radeon HD 6790, which boasts of better performance compared to its Nvidia rival.
Radeon HD6790
The HD 6790 runs at 1GB DDR5 memory with an engine clock speed of up to 840 MHz. It has an astounding memory data rate of up to 4.2 Gbps - now, that's a pretty decent figure. Memory interface in this component runs at 256-bit. Furthermore, the Radeon HD 6790 comes with 800 stream processors, supports DirectX 11.0 and PCI-E 2.1x16 bus interface compatibility. The output sockets on the HD 6790 are two DVI, two mini-DisplayPort and a single HDMI.

On the outside market, this video card comes at an introductory price of around US$150, which makes it in positioned in between the Radeon HD 5770 and HD6850. Some reputable companies have already released their own versions of this GPU engine (e.g. MSI, XFX, PowerColor, Club 3D and Sapphire). I think in due time this will also hit our shores once the shipping and distribution department gets cleared on these brand new components.

    Performance, Value, Practicability - These are the things I look for when purchasing Computer components. Getting the most out of what I can afford is the matter that I've consistently practiced. It doesn't take to be a rocket-scientist to know that, all I need is a keen sense in what's good and bad.
