If this is remotely true, they better work on their reference coolers first! The ones on the 290 will obviously not work, and the 3 fan reference not so much either.
If this is true and they can deal with the thermal issues that should end the era of dual gpu cards form AMD being sub par.
I think people are forgetting that the 290 series are made to run at 95 degrees, I dont think AMD will push the thermal anymore than that so this is a non issue.
What I want to know is the price, make it $699 (same as 780 Ti) and I'll sell a kidney for it in a heart beat.
This has to be fake. Even if you have binned god chips laying around somewhere you are still going to have a 400w+ card.
If someone had the money and desire for such a card, the 400+ watts would not be an issue.
I meant cooling solution wise. All of AMD official dual-chip cards have only shipped with reference coolers. Given AMD's track record with reference coolers being very poor I doubt they could even produce a dual-slot cooler capable of efficiently cooling 400W+.
