HD 7990 is a beast. Probably costs a fortune to make and aimed at at even more niche market so it makes sense to discontinue it before the next gen cards launch. The HD 9970 is going to be very very good indeed
All the things I said about the card were actually true.
It was obviously late coming in a year after its competition, the 690 and almost a year and a half later than the 7970.
It did not receive much critical acclaim as reviewers didn't really like the OCing potential, price tag or the frame rating problems.
It was overpriced considering it performed worse than a 7970 CFX setup.
And it obviously did not work properly as crossfire at the moment does not give you a better gaming experience smoothness wise with high end setups like this.

These cards are reaching the end of their product lifespan and getting discounted and discontinued in preparation for the new series of cards.
8800GTX, GTX 280, GTX 285, GTX 480, and GTX 580 have also been GPGPU cards. That's Nvidia's business model. They make a big GPGPU die and most of the time they also have to use it on consumer cards.
And if the price of the Titan was too salty you have a 780 which is a cut down Titan.
And both of these cards offer a better gaming experience than a 7990, at a lower price point, with lower power consumption, much better OCing potential and so on. It's no wonder people like the GK110 based cards. They're beasts.
