    Default 7990 to be released late August



    VR-Zone has received some more information about upcoming dual-gpu Radeon HD 7990 graphics card.

    According to them, the previous release date has been moved to next month. VR-Zone has earlier claimed that we might see HD 7990 in late July, well, this is not going to happen.

    At least that much. Wonder if one will be cheaper than two 7970s? Also wonder if one will perform as well or better than two 7970s.

    In the past, Two cards in CF have always outperformed a Dual chip on a single PCB card.
    Although thier are sometimes Driver issues associated with them from time to time in CF.

    The Latency scaling is near 100% also.
    Reason is that they have to make compromizes as to heating and component placement on one PCB.

    Plus's for dual chip are, Usually only take up 2 slots, But can add another single or dual card of the same series for Tri or Quad.

    My Take.

    Iroc, this is not correct. The 6990/7990 has the same GPU x 2 as the 6970/7970 respectably... The same shaders, same Cuda Processors, same textures,ect...x 2. The reason the 6970 performed better in crossfire is the stock core speed was 880 where the 6990 was 830MHz. They perform equal and the 7990 will have 0 crossfire issues where 2 x 7970 can potentially have xfire issues. At $999, the 7990 is a better deal than 2 x 7970's at $500+.

    Also, most said the 6990 has more overclocking headroom BTW.

    Your argument is correct but did you say AMD gpu has "Cuda Processors"? Dude that is blasphemous! Stream Processors for AMD!

    Default Re: 7990 to be released late August

    It will be interesting to see what kind of price tag on this card. The GTX 690 is at $1k and they are hardly making any sells on it. I mean who can really afford a $1k GPU right now... I am hurting at it is trying to spend $400 on one... I mean yea, this is techincally 2 GPU's in 1, but $400 each x2 is still only $800..

    IMO if they price this card more then $800 they aren't going to sell that many.

    Who has 7970's at $400. Most have them over $500 unless there was a price drop.

    Yeah the price dropped. You can get a 7970 on newegg for $430, and less other places.

    Yup.. Remember they had a sell for it not to long ago for $369 with 5 games. Prices on these are have dropped a little since and will continue to drop seeing that the GTX670 can out perform the 7970 with a slight OC..

The reason the 6970 performed better in crossfire is the stock core speed was 880 where the 6990 was 830MHz. They perform equal and the 7990 will have 0 crossfire issues where 2 x 7970 can potentially have xfire issues. At $999, the 7990 is a better deal than 2 x 7970's at $500+.

    Also, most said the 6990 has more overclocking headroom BTW.
    As I said,

    They compromize the clocks because of putting two chips on #1 PCB.

    Because of heat issues.

    And we shall see when the 7990 comes out as performing as well clock wise as two separate single chip cards.
    Haven't in the past.

    And check your card prices,
    Cheaper than 500 in alot of places.
    I only payed 479 bucks to the door when they first came out.
