the mini display ports are good for 2 each. so i believe six screens is possible.


Where did you come up with that? And don't mention any vaporware.

2 is enough. Even one can do the job. Herm
What is this red button? Emergency stop?
It's not that, really? whistle.gif

I believe the red button is for the performance BIOS.

I mean in 3 screen mode, I am sure less than that the 7970 is a lot better. Either way ill just wait now.

The GTX690 is an engineering masterpiece and this looks like a cheap Chinese product in comparison.

This is just to huge imo, it looks like a transformers forearm! This cooler is over-engineered and I believe it could have been designed more efficiently, without this cooling solution the HD7990 is an engineering marvel just like the GTX 690. The cooler however is pure crap, failure! Most that can afford something like this will slap a water block on it anyway.

HD7990= $1000+

Water block= $200 at most.

The same 590 that beats the 6990, is half as loud, consumes less power, is smaller and doesn't suffer from terrible microstutter?

And yes, they OC just fine if you put the time into it. Percentage wise they're about the same as the 690 when it comes to OCing...

don't get the animosity towards the 3 slot design..

 

crossfire 7970s = 4 slots

single 7990 = 3 slots

If I or anyone else with a motherboard capable of supporting the three slot design were to keep their current 7970 and add the 7990, the airflow of the 7990 would be greatly impaired. Does something about that not make sense to you or what exactly is it that you don't get?

I'll add one of these because you did.

because everybody will run an 7970 and 7990 simultaneously.

sure, i got it. you win thumb.gif

Unlike you, I don't seem to think I am capable of speaking for everyone.

The 7970 came out first so there could be many people such as myself who purchased it with the faint thought of eventually adding the dual GPU version, when/if it came out, like so many did with the 6990. I really don't see what's so perplexing about it.
