Hi,

I was wondering :

does it matter which brand HD 6990 I choose ? are there performance / reliability issues depending on the brand.

Sorry I'm still a newbie and have to post here : this should be better placed in the mining hardware forum of course.

Moderator : could you do something about this ? The site's policy is a bit frustrating as my question may not be looked at by the relevant people now. Why not let anybody post anywhere and ban if they don't behave ?

Thanks.

You will see marginal differences depending on the manufacturer, unless the GPU is a reference card.  Reference cards have the AMD logo right above the PCI-E interface, which is located at the bottom of the card.

As cothom said basically they are nearly the same, maybe one has got more or less ram which is useless for minning...

Hi,

thanks for your answer : what exactly do you mean with reference card ? is it like it's from AMD but another company just put another logo on it and re-boxed it ?

It's a rather expensive piece of equipment : that's why I like to ask before "investing".

Yes, all reference cards are made equal.  They are made by AMD, and another company puts their sticker on the card.  But in the end, it doesn't really matter TOO much... you will see very similar results, no matter which brand you choose.
