The AMD Radeon HD 6990 Dual GPU Card is Huge

The AMD Radeon HD 6970 may be the top end for the company's graphics division, but it still has that ultra-high-end place to fill. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the upcoming Radeon HD 6990, and it's huge.

Here is the card that makes AMD VP Matt Skynner look small in comparison.

It's a dual Cayman GPU, two slot solution that will become AMD's flagship graphics part for the earlier half of 2011.

Just in time for Crysis 2.

    Holy. Crap.

    Let's just hope it's performance is good enough to compensate for it's size! And i bet aftermarket companies will be able to fit at least 4 80mm fans on it. That will be an IMPRESSIVE sight :D

    HAH! It's like a brick!

    Its Huge Buffalo HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE (anyone from western NY will hate me for this)

    an a more serious note, i don't care if the card is huge, i have a decent case (as will most people here who buy this card) and will get to show it off "hey, look at the GPU brick in my case"

    Only 1 8 pin and 1 6 pin power connectors. Mmmmm interesting.
  • I wonder if it's as big as the ASUS 5870x2
  • Why does it need to be so big. From the reference board it looks like they could consolidate the Power Circuit a lot better while isolating it from the high power heat dissipating devices.

    hope the pcb board is reinforced... and i'd probably use somethign to brace it underneath as thats alot of weight on the pci-e slot
