No it probably will not. Do not buy a 7990. It will simply be 2 UNDERCLOCKED 7970s on one card. They have to be underclocked because of temps and power requirements. 2 7970s are the "overclocked" version and you can always just overclock them yourself on top of that. They are pretty much guaranteed to faster, cheaper, and cooler.

So I have a 7990 with an EK waterblock. I just pushed the Core to 1100MHz and the Memory to 1575MHz and my temp wont go over 57 at full load. How can I further push this card?
