ASUS Introduces the Radeon HD 7990 Dual-GPU Graphics Card


Kill your enemies in HD 4K resolution. ASUS has introduced the Radeon HD 7990 Dual-GPU graphics card packed with 6GB GDDR5 video RAM, assuring the most hardcore of gamers a ultra-smooth gaming experience.

The dual-GPU is based on AMD Graphics Core Next technology and derived from 28nm AMD Radeon graphics processors. With a whopping 6GB GDDR5 video memory, the ASUS Radeon HD 7990 takes the most demanding Direct X 11.1 games in ultra settings and resolutions beyond 1920 x 1080, in stride.

The Radeon HD 7990 card fits a single slot PCI Express 3.0 and thus, does not require AMD CrossFireX multi-GPU bridging. Nice, very nice. The powerful card is also ready for ultra HD 4K video.

The ASUS Radeon HD 7990 is an ideal platform for dedicated gamers, and its highly customisable nature with GPU Tweak, ensure fine-tune performance for the hardcore. Not that it needs any additional tuning out of the box. The ASUS Radeon HD 7990 delivers the power of two HD 7970 GPUs, totaling 4096 Stream processors and 256 texture units.

The ASUS Radeon HD 7990 supports Windows 8-based DirectX 11.1, the newest version of the Microsoft API.

ASUS is generously bundling eight hit titles in the box:

  • Tomb Raider (Crystal Dynamics/Square Enix)
  • Hitman: Absolution (IO Interactive™/Square Enix)
  • Sleeping Dogs™ (Square Enix)
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution™ (Eidos/Square Enix)
  • Crysis 3 (Crytek/EA)
  • Far Cry 3 (Ubisoft)
  • Far Cry: Blood Dragon (Ubisoft)
  • BioShock Infinite (Irrational Games/2K)

*Games delivered via redeemable download codes


The ASUS Radeon HD 7990 graphics card will be available worldwide from late May. The recommended retail price is yet to be confirmed.
