AMD Radeon HD 7990 "Malta" Listed on Ebay

A lucky bloke who managed to score an engineering sample of AMD's upcoming Radeon HD 7990 sought to make a quick buck by auctioning it on Ebay. An opening bid of $0.99, and 36 bids (ATP) later, the auction has reached the $1,125 mark. The engineering sample is said to ship with clock speeds of 950 MHz core, and 6.00 GHz memory. The dual-GPU graphics cards ships with two fully-loaded AMD "Tahiti" GPUs, with 2048 stream processors each, and a 384-bit memory interface holding 3 GB of GDDR5 memory, each. If anything the Ebay listing gave us some gorgeous pictures of the beast.

If is not an AMD employee, then it must have been one of those brainless and grotesque rich Arab princes. Nobody is that stupid to pay for the card that ammount of money.

seller pulled it from Ebay:laugh:
I wonder why...

...maybe because AMD forced him to do so. Or maybe the auction was such a joke that Ebay forced him to remove it? :confused: :laugh:
