"AMD stealthily introduced the HD 6790 earlier this month; so stealthily, in fact, that we never even got a chance to review it at launch. Now, we have the HIS IceQ HD 6790 Turbo in the office I’m eager to find out how this entry-level card performs on our testbed.
AMD introduced the HD 6790 to combat Nvidia’s GTX 550 Ti. The latter was poor on value when it launched at $180, but nowadays the price has been dropped to around $150; making the GTX 550 Ti a very decent entry-level card. And so, at $150, the HD 6790 has a very severe competition from the Nvidia camp."
