Looking at the core clock, does that mean that it wont me based on x2 Ghz Editions? I though I read on Toms that it would be clocked at 1Ghz or 1.1Ghz.

I'm sure AMD is just using this to determine how to set the MSRP

You might want to fix where it says 7790 up there.

I was going to bid, but $50 for shipping is a little steep.

@slomo4sho, it's probably just Nvida trying to get their hands on the card because they're terrified that it will beat their dual GPU solution.

Sigh... other 7990's are much cheaper.. This one is going for almost the value that remains on my mortgage. And does anyone actually have a case that would fit that MONSTER!?

This is a collector's item. People are willing to pay.

Say what? Little too late AMD don't you think? Should have worked more on 8000 series.

I would think if all AMD does is frown at the person who is selling this engineering sample, we will see many more of these up for sale... I know I would sell one for $100k if all I got was a frown from someone.

This could be an interesting new way for a company to recoup engineering expenses.

That is too much to ask for, but hey some folks still have too much money it seems.

As for a chassis to hold that monster, why yes I do, my gaming rig case is the Cooler Master CM-830 Stacker with plenty of room, in fact two of these would fit nicely inside ;)

Well, bid ended at $96,100... God dammit I rather spend a money on a pretty good sports car, or build a server in my house...

Sold for $96,000 [break cause comments suck] I wouldn't be surprised if AMD bought this to either sue the seller or claim it as a fake. [break cause comments suck] PS FIX THE DAMN COMMENTS, I hate getting an error for every comment!!!!

I can't feasibly understand why people have already bid $90,000+. I mean that's the price of a car, mortgage, payment to a new house, etc. You can just wait a week or 2 and get 2 of them for $2000 total probably.

For $94,000 less he could have gotten two Titan's in sli which would have been much better performance. Tomshardware should do an article on the price vs. performance for this guy.

I thought the 7990 was to be New Zealand???

I'd like one, but I'm not exactly willing to pay 90K for the privilege.

I wonder if the "Seller" pulled it because he/she received a cease and desist letter from AMD? This prank probably resulted in the Seller being barred from ever receiving Engineering samples AND a return of the 7990 to AMD.

LOL.. $30,100. I doubt it would hold it's value in the future. Even as a collection inventory.

Fitting the videocard in a casing is the LEAST of the worries... Question is would my wallet be able to accommodate something that expensive? To come to think of it, I would probably not even use it, I would keep it locked up tight! What a waste of resources... I would rather spend the cash on a decent car and a BEAST of a rig!
