I wonder if they will have the sams clock speeds as the "regular" 7970s? As previously - some older dual GPUs on a single PCB cards would have lower clocks due to higher heat output.

This looks like a great card for multi monitor setups. This is going to have to cost slightly less than $1000 as you can get dual 7970's for less than 1000.

OMG Its massive! If it is going to retail for the same price of a GTX 690, and a 7970 is a bit slower than a GTX 680, could the 7970 x2 have two overclocked 7970s? Im just saying cause i see three 8-pin pcie connections.

It sure is a sexy and no doubt powerhouse of a card, but for $1,000..... I have a idea, how about Tom's give us all old members still around one! Just take out out of Marcus's paycheck.

[citation][nom]Derbixrace[/nom]what i have heard there will be no 7990. feel free to thumb me down but after some thought it really makes sense. sorry guys[/citation]

It doesn't matter. The 690 availability borders on non-existence, not unlike the 680. AMD is readying their refreshes, which is much more important to the bottom line.

Given that there is no official reference design for a 7990 from AMD, and therefore no specialized drivers, I would worry about drivers working properly with this card. Would AMD drivers see this card as a pair of xfired 7970s, or is it a slightly different beast?

Given the way that it's named, I think it's strongly implied that it would be recognized as a pair of xfired 7970s by the drivers... then again, we'll find out next month
