Because 7990 is a dual gpu single pcb card that is xfire internally so all issues with current xfire frame stutter will carry over to it.......

They should release the price already, since release is so close. I bet its closer to 1000€, since its gonna compete mainly with 690 (if its near 1000 dollars A.K.A 1000€ AMD can say goodbye to sales).

Wrong. None of those so-called '7990' were designed by AMD, hence they're not reference designs.

Sigh.. Yes they were, or AMD would not have allowed them to badge it the 7990.

Very true. I am hoping they have at least a prelimanary working version of the CF fix driver or you're right this thing will be praised for it's potential but people will be told to "wait it out"

Because it is 2 7970's on 1 card same as the 690 is 2 680's on one. 2-in-1 cards work exactly like crossfire/sli just in a single card size. This is why folks love the overpriced Titan. It gives GREAT performance and is a true single card solution

This 7990 will have a very different pcb. Those older ones were absolutely not reference. That small angled pcb shot in the teaser image actually looks similar to the 6990 pcb.

^ HD 7990 Malta

vs HD 7790 New Zealand


http://www.fudzilla.com/home/item/31026-amd-radeon-hd-7990-malta-pictured-again
Quote:
In case you missed it, reference Radeon HD 7990 Malta was pictured and officially announced at GDC 2013 press event last month and came with triple-fan dual-slot cooler. Unlike the earlier released HD 7990 New Zealand graphics cards that needed triple-slot cooling and three 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors, the upcoming HD 7990 Malta is less power hungry as it only needs two 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors.

Bearing a new internal codename "Malta," compared to last year's various dual-HD 7970 contraptions that were codenamed "New Zealand," the new Radeon HD 7990 is being designed to be far more energy efficient, and quiet. While the various "New Zealand" cards often featured three 8-pin PCIe power connectors and triple-slot cooling solutions, "Malta" makes do with just two 8-pin power connectors, and a dual-slot cooler.
