[Industry, CA] Today, leading global graphics card and mainboard manufacturer MSI officially announces the R7950 Twin Frozr 3GD5/OC graphics card built on the latest AMD 28nm Radeon HD7950 GPU with PCI Express Gen 3 support. MSI's exclusive Twin Frozr III thermal design features dual 8cm Propeller Blade fans to achieve up to 10℃ lower GPU temperatures and 13.7dB less noise under full load! MSI's exclusive Afterburner overclocking software can be used to unleash the core and memory voltage potential providing up to 37.5% overclockability! The R7950 Twin Frozr 3GD5/OC uses Military Class III components include Hi-c CAP, Super Ferrite Choke and All Solid capacitors that have passed MIL-STD-810G level testing to deliver the best graphics card performance and quality to gamers. MSI further expands its R7900 with two new products, the R7970-2PMD3GD5/OC and R7950-2PMD3GD5/OC to provide the best choice for gamers.


That will be my new card if nVidia doesn't have a contender by the launch of Ivy Bridge.

Hope they have a TFIII 7850.

I have a feeling that the 7890 isn't gonna happen ... if it was, I think it'd be on the roadmap at least.

I'd think that the only good reason to make such a card (keeping in mind it's a Tahiti LE chip, basically a 7970 chip, but with even more units disabled than a 7950) would be due to poor yields on fully-functional chips.

I think that the 7890 (7930 would've made a lot more sense as a name, but ... maybe the PR guys didn't think it sounded good, given that the 5830 was a bit of a fail) was probably looked at as an option before they knew for sure how reliable the yields would be.

The release of the 7950 (before the 7890 even 'officially exists') suggests to me (by no means take this as fact, it's just my guess) that they've discovered that they're getting a lot of nearly fully-functional chips out of the fab process, and won't have a bunch of sub-par chips laying around to make 7890's out of.

Although, In hindsight, the 5830 kinda came out of nowhere pretty late in the 5xxx-series game, so ... maybe that's what'll happen with the 7890 as well ... it may be that AMD will wait to make or even announce the 7890's until a large enough stockpile of b-stock chips pile up in order to a make a large run of 7890's a possibility. This way they don't let on to the competition what the yields are really looking like until the latest possible moment.

On one hand, this 7890 card intrigued me a bit as a possible kickass crossfire setup for 1920 res, but on the other ... I've never been a big fan of cards with larger dies and lots of disabled units. Neither the 465 ('cept those that unlocked thumb.gif) or the 5830 were very efficient cards in terms of perf/watt, and both were really 'analogs' to the rumored 7890.

If the xfx and sapphire cards weren't out of stock at the egg I'd have pulled the trigger on one of these... Maybe this weekend or next week if they get more stock in

The 7890 is probably an enigma (and I have to agree with Brettjv's guess, which is right on the money). 7890 was only meant for the binned chips that werent up to 7950/70 standards and since yeilds seem to be really good for 28nm so early in the process the 7890 has been left on the back burner until a later time or scrapped altogether...

On the other hand AMD needs to fill a gap in their pricing model in the $350 and $400 price points since they have nothing there. So maybe thats where the 7890 comes back into play, more than likely after the 78xx's launch and Nv shows their hand. If prices stagnate then the 7890 will be needed to fill a void at $350 but if AMD is forced to lower prices 50-100 then the 7890 wouldnt be needed....

So in the long and short of it... Who really knows? All we know is that the 78xx's will be out in March and will AMD have their full line of GCN parts out in the wild
