[VRZ] 12GB 7990 may launch second half of July

post #1 of 175

Known under the codename "New Zealand", Radeon HD 7990 represents AMD's highest-end part from the Southern Islands architecture. Consisting out of two Tahiti XT GPUs and 6GB GDDR5 memory (special edition 7990s could reach 12GB), Radeon HD 7990 goes head to head against the GeForce GTX 690.

By default, AMD has the advantage in terms of 50% more video memory (GTX 690 has 4GB), significantly higher memory bandwidth and the new Turbo mode, technology similar to the Turbo mode used on NVIDIA Kepler-based cards with a few major differences.

Our sources are telling us that the boards are starting to be sampled, all in preparation for the product launch in the second half of July. We will release more details as the launch day approaches, as well as the final retail price, which still isn’t decided as we write this story. While we know AMD's press deck, the company has a long tradition of changing the price at the last moment.

At the same time, a lot of AMD partners are running the card in their labs but aren't aware of the actual product launch. We will see in just a few weeks time.

I highly doubt it.

3GB is more than enough for eyefinnity resolutions. More memory will simply increase the power consumption and heat which for that card would be a big issue.

Nope.

Who cares about heat when you got those beasts ? We care about the price, and more memory could rise the price, have a 6-8Gb 7990 for around $799-$949 and you got a game breaker.

Nope.

Probably only 3GB usable, both Nvidia and AMD make their dual gpu cards sound like it has twice the usable memory.

If you can read, the rumor is up to 6gb usable Vram. That is twice of a standard 79xx series card.

perhaps with 4k video people will need proper 4k textures? huge levels, new rendering techniques might mean huge vram is needed? i dunno but 12gb vram sounds very cool biggrin.gif

Do you think a 7990 would be able to xfire with 7970s?

I waited and waited for this card. Not interested anymore. Will wait for next round.

Neither can Nvidia. Game suffers from awful frame drops on every card I've played it on. Have no idea what it's issue is especially considering how well optimized Asylum was.
