[Fudzilla] AMD Has Working Malta 7990 Cards. - Page 3

post #21 of 170
I honestly dont see this as a pair of 7970 cores. I see this card as two 7870 XT cores clocked at 1Ghz. 7870 XT should easily beat a single titan and amd can price it at 699.99 to undercut nvidia while still making a substantial profit.

Look at the valley thread. 7870 XT crossfire is 7.5% faster then the fastest overclocked titan on the forum.

I would assume for most titles a single 7970 would suffice for some time but some of the bigger titles it would be nice to know crossfire support is available right away, hell tomb raider can give my card fits trying to max it out.

Crossfire is a problem on the lower end cards, but it works well for the 79x0 cards. My next rig is going to have two 7970s in Crossfire driving a single 1440p monitor.

Proof? I ran 7870 xfire for months before my 7970s and they flew

The 78x0 cards aren't much lower on the scale than that 79x0 (obviously), I meant the 77x0 cards, but Crossfire works better on them than it did on the 6xx0 cards. I imagine that AMD will have ironed out any kinks for GCN 2.0 cards when they come out.

And if they keep what they have been saying, it will beat both.

Perhaps it wasn't released earlier because they knew the GK110 would see its way to desktop? That way they could slam the market when some time since Titan passed (hype is down) so they get full attention from the media, and people will listen clearer to their Titan beater.

If you guys haven't noticed, there are ALREADY 7990 cards available prior to Titan, and that hasn't stopped people from getting a Titan over a 7990.

A lot of people don't want the hassles of a Dual GPU card, which is why they're buying a Titan over a 690 at the same price point.

Call me when AMD comes up with a REAL answer to Titan in Single GPU fashion. A dual card is simply not the answer to Titan.

7990 is irrelevant with Titan out there, unless the 7990 is super cheap. Not to mention there are already "7990" type cards on the market already so a "true" 7990 changes nothing unless, once again it's pretty cheap.

You're making some pretty big assumptions. Please remember that AMD is preparing a 7790 with GCN 2.0 architecture, so there stands a chance that a 7990 would be two 1 Ghz GCN 2.0 cores, which would be more than a match for a single Titan or GTX 690 and for a lot less. Two such 7990s in Crossfire would eat a Titan or GTX 690 alive.

The titan alone isn't exactly a gaming monster, though in EVERY aspect it beats out the 7970. AMD knows this, as well as they know other 7990s exist. What would be the point of coming out with the card, people are just going to react 2 ways:

1) Already done before, meh

2) Not as good as two titans, so who cares

Those that care, already have a 3rd party one. Those that don't, well they don't. Nvidia could easily do a dual titan card, with minimal frame loss and call it a day. Their is no reason for AMD to showcase what's already been done.

The other issue I have with all this AMD hype now that Titan is out, you probably will not find a single AMD card better than Titan for a while. In fact, I'd be willing to put money on the idea that the next gen of Nvidia cards is going to raise the bar for AMD. I think the Titan was a PR stunt/response to AMDs fame lately. It's basically them telling AMD to either beat that, or don't bother. Which I don't think AMD can, so I'm betting we won't see any "response" to this.

Another side note, if the Titan is this powerful this year and out in production. What do you think they will do on the next official release? Companies plan pretty far ahead, this wasn't random and it wasn't a last ditch effort. I have no doubt Nvidia will push us again into the next gen cards. Granted, they HAVE too. AMD is getting a close hand with developers being on the consoles. So it'll help them out a lot.

as stupid as this sounds this will probably be my next card. not really happy with the 2GB frame buffer on my setup right now. I miss having a single card setup I actually sacrificed my sound card when I bought two cards frown.gif

Just proving which this isn't another 7990 refresh. I think it will be a $700 dual gpu card. I don't think they are trying to steal titan owners as that doesn't seem to be a concern of theirs atm.

I think it is more of price v price with the 690.
