I though the term "TURBO DUO" meant that it would have TWO GPU's on one board... Just a thought, but it would be a pretty cool card if it had them, especially if it was priced at around $400 or less!! Hey, everyone is allowed to dream right? :D

That would just be a 7990, which were at minimum $650 when they were still around, and had terrible heat (and semi-formerly, frame-pacing) problems.

I'd dream bigger. :p

I'm tired of graphic card companies using DUAL or DUO or some other word for two in their graphic card names. It sounds retarded and misleading that it's an actual improvement to the GPU. When in reality it means it has two fans (big whoop). Give your cooling solution a 'cool' name and quit being quacks.

Also, these specs don't seem very impressive, 1030mhz? My voltage locked 7970 does better than this. All these years of binning these chips for only a 1030mhz boost? Sad

Does a 880 MHz base clock mean it's slower than a 7970 GHz edition? Because the 280X is supposed to be a rebrand of that.
