    And you still can't remember Nvidia naming scheme. I will give you some tip. Lose attention to all GPUs under 640, because they are so slow, there is no reason to remember them.

    You know what the difference between you and me? I know that 660 is slower than 660Ti. And 760 will be slower than 760Ti and so on.

    i know this is far fetched but wouldnt it be kind of funny to see a dual core 7890 or 7870x2?

    also the codenames will be sea islands for desktop and Solar System for mobile so venus being 8900 series for desktop is wrong

    im wondering if the bit bus is 256 vs 384 meaning even distribution of data across all memory banks.

    this is practically the same as having a 6790 which isnt necessarily a bad thing actually. This might verywell be the missing link for Crossfire between 78** and 79** serues boards

    Amd has something up their sleeve with this card. They probably are doing this to get rid of stock. To really move the stock fast they will make some sort of shader unlock 7800 trifire something etc.
