The model made by HIS is amazing, with iceQx it performs so well. i got the turbo version for a small price increase, and i dont really notice any difference except for the higher memory and core speeds. anyway, great card :D

I have this card for two weeks now and so far I am pleased. It is not a monster like the 6800 or 6900 series but I still have a nice performance, especially considering the price. I was going to buy a HD6770, but in the last moment I found this offer for Sapphire HD6790 for only 15 EUR more.

Really nice card… Maxing out all games at 1280x1024 and playing on 1920x1080 with details lowered a notch. It ROASTS the 550 Ti in almost all games.

Wish it draws less power though…

AMD FTW :)
