Sapphire Announces the Liquid Cooled Atomic HD 7990

Sapphire has announced that they are currently developing the Atomic HD 7990 graphics card that features two Tahiti XT2 GPUs, 6 GB of GDDR5 memory, six mini-DisplayPort outputs, and requires three 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

The Atomic HD 7990 will also be offered with a rather imposing looking liquid cooling system that includes a full copper water block, a front 5.25-inch reservoir with one pump (upgradable to two pumps), a 240 mm radiator and two 120 mm cooling fans. Though Sapphire hasn’t provided any information on the graphics card’s clock rates, we can safely assume that the Atomic HD 7990 will be impressively overclocked and consequently, justify the inclusion of the liquid cooling system.

    2 typos; text reads "7790", should be 7990.

    Only display port? No go for me with 30" monitors that need dual link DVI. The active adapters are $100 and last only a few months before dying.

    Its 6GB total but really only 3GB per 7970 core which is quite handy for eyefinity. Still the price is likely to be Ares II level so not really practical even for those who do have an actual "need" for this level.

    I know the whole "enthusiast" market doesn't care about power requirements, but why the hell would anyone want to gobble down enough power for THREE 8 pins? I just can't get that over my head.

    What active adapters are you using? The active adapters I got for my Crossfire HD 7950 and Crossfire HD 7970 setup only set me back $30 and have lasted for over 2 years. Got them back when I got my Crossfire HD 6950 setup and I am still using them on two different rigs.
