AMD Radeon HD 6930: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 6930


AMD started Radeon HD 6930 sales 1 December 2011 at a recommended price of 180 USD. This is TeraScale 3 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 153.6 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 220 mm. Two 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 186 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 14.07 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
