HD 6990 with Core i7-2600K benchmarks at Ultra Quality quality settings

At 1440p, HD 6990 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is worth noting that the HD 6990 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. With current 2048 MB RAM, the HD 6990 can have serious memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. This combination between HD 6990 and Intel Core i7-2600K @ 3.40GHz has less than 15% bottleneck in many games and can cause minor FPS loss. This combination between HD 6990 and Intel Core i7-2600K @ 3.40GHz has less than 8% bottleneck in many games and is perfect match to avoid FPS loss. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like HD 6990 requires careful thought. With current 2048 MB RAM, the HD 6990 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.
