PowerColor Radeon HD 7990 DirectX 11 AX7990 6GBD5-2DHJ 6GB 384-Bit x2 GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -The cooling solution is great, stays cooler than other 7990 cards.
-Perfect for achieving tri-fire in conjunction with a 7970.
-boost button is a nice feature and makes overclocking simple.
-multiple output types, unlike most new 7990 cards.
-plenty of accessories, including a support bar.
-8 Free Games that you will actually want to play! Having issues getting the games, see below....
-My office owns Sapphire, MSI, Gigabyte, and Powercolor variations of the 7990, this cards is by far the coolest running.

Cons: -can get loud, but not loader than my gaming volume!
-support bar is of limited use, not sturdy, but ok if it fits your case layout.
-(a pro for me)this card is huge, so proceed with caution if you have need for your central PCIe slots.
-voltage is locked on the card I received, and I believe it is done through hardware.
-this is a 7970 x2 solution, not a AMD Malta. While it runs cooler, it also has lower clocks.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to download the latest BETA drivers from AMD, currently 13.8beta2.
Any issues with the free games promo should be addressed directly with AMD at

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great performance. Skyrim at max settings on three 144hz monitors screams!
6GB video ram does improve performance on many games and applications.
Latest 13.8 beta driver from AMD website are a MUST and greatly increase the awesomeness of these cards.

Cons: Somewhat hot, 70 degrees plus can be expected. Water blocks are recommended. Fewer free accessories than other brands of 7990. You will likely need to invest in addition adapters. Look at the main product page pictures to see what comes in the box.

Other Thoughts: If you have problems getting the 8 free games, the best solution is to contact AMD directly at
