AMD Radeon HD 6930: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 6930

Summary

AMD started Radeon HD 6930 sales 1 December 2011 at a recommended price of $180. This is TeraScale 3 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 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 0.98 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
