Sweet! I'll be reviewing this card on my YouTube Channel, if I get to buy it! thumb.gif

I also like Anand's inclusion of the other manufacturers models as a reference on looks as well as hardware cannucks*

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Not a whole lot of variety in those pre-OC'd cards. Looks like there's 4 major configurations:

1000 / 6000 ("Reference")
1050 / 6000
1075 / 6000
1075 / 6400

No.

Plus, why would you want to go bananas with OCing a custom, voltage unlocked HD 7790 (which would likely be expensive) when you could just buy a HD 7850 and overclock THAT for a few bucks more?

My thoughts exactly. Unless the 7790 has a very low price point, I don't see why this would be a better choice than a 7850.

In that respect, it can also be argued that there is no point testing it on games like LOL and DOTA 2, because frankly, everyone and their mother's computer can run those games at very smooth (60+fps) framerates.

" Bonaire is of course a GCN part; it’s a new microarchitecture that’s technically different from Southern Islands, but on the whole it’s a microarchitecture that’s extremely close in design to Southern Islands. In this new microarchitecture there are some changes – among other things the new microarchitecture implements some new instructions that will be useful for HSA, support for a larger number of compute work queues (also good for HSA) and it also implements a new version of AMD’s PowerTune technology (which we’ll get to in a bit) – but otherwise the differences from Southern Islands are very few. There are no notable changes in shader/CU efficiency, ROP efficiency, graphics features, etc. Unless you’re writing compute code for AMD GPUs, from what we know about this microarchitecture it’s likely you’d ever notice a difference."

http://www.anandtech.com/show/6837/amd-radeon-7790-review-feat-sapphire-the-first-desktop-sea-islands/2

False alarm, this is just updated first gen GCN. We'll have to wait a few months to see what sort of perforrmance improvement (if any at all) AMD will bring.

Sea Islands and the "Islands" designation in general does NOT indicate a microarchitecture this time around. AMD actually put this in crystal clear perspective within their calls. And I quote: "The HD 7790 uses new silicon but it is not a new architecture. This is GCN.".

Sea Islands = designation for ALL cards released in 2013. HD 8000 OEM cards? Sea Islands. HD 7790? Sea Islands. The HD 8000G within the Richland APUs? Sea Islands.

So, the first desktop Sea Islands parts would be the HD 8000 OEM series and NOT the HD 7790.

You are correct though. The HD 7790 is simply GCN 1.0 with a new microcontroller for additional P-States and better on-die monitoring.

It will be because AMD will discontinue 7850 1GB according to Hardware Canucks' review, so this card won't be bumping into it in price range and should have better price/performance than 7850 2GB.

They didn't really may it up. The 1 Gbit modules they were using are indeed discontinued. I fact checked that claim extensively.
