Advanced Micro Devices is launching a new high-end graphics card today with some serious horsepower. The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based chip maker says it has retaken the crown for the world’s fastest graphics card.
The AMD Radeon HD 7990 card, with two chips, has more than 8.6 billion transistors, and it has 4,096 stream processors that can produce 8.2 teraflops of computing power. It can support 4K resolutions on the newest monitors and TVs, and can run six displays at once.
