Test Setup, Game Benchmarks

Test Setup:
Today's test system consists of the hardware listed below, and as with all good testing a clean install is used and the latest Windows Updates are applied. The applications and games used in today's tests are the latest of what was available at the time of this analysis - links to demos and free trials are provided when applicable.


VTX3D's Radeon HD 6790 features a default core clock of 840 MHz and memory running at 2100 MHz (4200 MHz effective), inline with AMD's reference design. Overclocking allowed us to increase the core to 960 MHz and memory to 2360 MHz (4720 MHz effective) without any voltage adjustments. We tried multiple overclocking applications and were unable to adjust/unlock voltages adjustment, so either the software is lacking support or the ability to adjust Vcore voltage may have been removed to save costs as is a common practice employed by many manufacturers. Default specifications as displayed by TechPowerUp's GPU-Z are on the left, while overclocked settings and details are on the right.
