Radeon HD 7990 Pictured in CrossFireX

By - Source: Reddit | B 23 comments

A new picture has surfaced which shows two HD 7990's in CrossFireX.

With all the rumors going around regarding the upcoming Radeon HD 7990, it is not surprising that something more has been created. This time around we have another picture of not one, but two of AMD's Radeon HD 7990s. The HD 7990 was announced just last month at GDC.

The image shows two Malta graphics cards in CrossFireX, making up a total of four GPUs. This is inside a liquid cooled enthusiast PC. The user who submitted the image, who goes by the nickname "repilur," turns out to be Johan Andersson, a developer of the Frostbite engine at DICE.

Rumors also indicate that the graphics card might ship with a copy of Battlefield 4 in the box. This is not surprising since AMD revealed that its HD 7990 was running the 17 minute gameplay video of Battlefield 4, which was run at a 3K resolution (3072 x 1620), at a constant 60 FPS.

If the rumors hold true, we may even see the graphics card launch some time this month, with pricing expected to be around $1,000.

    When are they coming out? I am in a dilemma as to either get my Titan back or do a 680s SLI or wait and see how this performs. I just want the reviews and the official pricing on this asap. Thanks Tom's!

    One side of me is like "Ooooooo sooo purdy," but then the other side of me smacks the first side in the head as I realize there is really no purpose spend that much money to have dual HD 7990.

    Still cool though.

    I was about to be amazed that they put the fan upside down so I can see it... Then I realized the case/mobo was the one upside down... Yay, now we get to only see PCB or a backplate again... Why have these "gangsta" looking designs if you can only see when you put it in?

    I wish they would stop releasing pictures and just release the actual card already, I have been holding off on a new card until this comes out. My 7870 crossfire setup isn't cutting it at 2560x1600.

    Even with Radeon Pro your still limiting yourself to your screens refresh rate. So if you had a single monitor it would be a waste anyway it would scream past 60 frames let alone 120 frames in just about everything. And then in a multi monitor situation you will more then likely run into something very similar 2 GPU's suffer enough stuttering and frame timing issues let alone throwing in a 4th gpu into the mix. Great for benchmarks unpractical for everything else and that goes for dual 690's as well or 3-4 titans.

    Sweet, these cards should either match or beat titan.. I think the reason AMD has waited so long to release them is because they wanted to lower power usage and also so they could perfect the drivers and overcome the micro stuttering issues. It is better to wait and do something right than to do it early and half @$$ it.. Hopefully the competition between AMD and Nvidia will lower the price on Titans, Titian LE (not yet released), 680s, 7990s (unoffical models have been released but not AMD official models), and 7970s (either GHZ or regular). The real winner will be the consumers, us!!

    If a 7970 is only around $400 then why is this more than double?? It isn't going to be a powerful at two 7970's. It should be priced $699 at best!

    The form factor is a single card, true its two cut down 7970s but still, its one card, if someone needed four 7970s in the space of two slots (4 brackets) or even just needed the performance of two 7970s and only had one slot I doubt they are going to care much about an extra 200 bucks.

    Its a niche product for sure, just like the titan but not as niche. Same concept though, kinda.

    They will have a big problem on their hands if they release this card without fixing the Crossfire frame latency issue. Any review using FCAT will expose these inherent flaws and seriously bring into question the value of this $1000 video card. Without the fixed driver, they are just setting themselves up for a big mess.
