AMD Launches AMD Radeon HD 6990M Mobile Graphics Processor


AMD today launched the AMD Radeon HD 6990M GPU claiming that it is the world's fastest single mobile graphics processor that supports DirectX11 and HD3D. AMD says that the new GPU is 25 percent faster than any other GPU that's been announced to the public, including Nvidia's latest mobile GPU, the GeForce GTX 580M.

With the arrival of the AMD Radeon 6990M GPU and the recently launched AMD A-Series Accelerated Processors (APU), AMD is pushing graphics capabilities to the limits for a wide range of notebook form factors and price points while enhancing the experience through technologies like AMD CrossFireX and Dual Graphics (using a combination of AMD Radeon GPUs or an AMD Radeon GPU and an AMD APU).

"There's always been a belief that when it comes to mobile computing you need to make performance compromises. Today AMD demolishes that myth," said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager, GPU division, AMD. "The AMD Radeon HD 6990M GPU, which not only packs AMD Eyefinity technology with unprecedented specs, also provides full Microsoft DirectX 11 and Stereo 3D support. Bottom line, this processor is epic and it's here - now."

The AMD Radeon HD 6990M also represents a significant upgrade from AMD's current gaming notebook graphics solution, the AMD Radeon HD 6970M, raising the bar from both a performance and image quality perspective. With support for DirectX 11, users can expect ultra-fast frame rates, while the AMD Eyefinity technology offers support for up to six displays. The AMD Radeon HD 6990M graphics processor also delivers AMD App Acceleration technology, which uses the power of the GPU to improve video playback, streaming and faster web browsing with Internet Explorer 9 and Mozilla Firefox. AMD HD3D technology also offers stereoscopic 3D support.
