Radeon HD 6790 compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Radeon HD 6790 has decent performance. This is perfectly acceptable for a mid-range dedicated graphics card. This graphics card is now over 6 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. The driver support for the AMD Radeon HD 6790 is now fairly poor, so don't count on any new game optimizations. You may also encounter more and more graphical oddities as newer games are released.

With an effective SPU count of 336, the AMD Radeon HD 6790 processes shading and special graphical effects competently. The GPU is quite power-hungry at 150 Watts, however.
