    LOL. Might happen though if we get stuck on 28nm like we did on 40nm.

    This, and the rebranded OEM 8000's, tells me that we aren't likely to see "Sea Islands" any time soon. :cry:

    I don't get it, how is this space saving it takes up much more space and that little 80mm fan looks dumb. The 690 was a dual slot also and ran just fine.

    This card is so late do you think this is a sign that AMD told ASUS that they won't be able to make a 8990 so ASUS just decided to come out with this card?

    Why would AMD list fake specs on their own site? To fuck with NVidia?


    That might be true...but highly unlikely.
