    It could be a good thing. The GTX 690 is a marvelous bit of design with a cooler that makes many single gpu cards look and sound shit. AMD has a bad habit of making great cards and slapping on turbo fans. If the likes of MSI and Asus get a stab at making custom dual 7970's then maybe they'll be able to outshine the 690 at a lower price point.

    We can but hope.

    Good, that means they could also put out a 7990 X2 for us. Couple 7990's could sandwich a waterblock making it only a 3-slotter.

    Come on manufacturers, don't be afraid!

    a 3xHD7870 with improved drivers would be faster, cheaper and better I guess

    Someone from Asus will probably make it regardless on whether AMD has a reference board or not. Patiently waiting for one to appear for me to salivate over (but not own)

    It's a well documented thing that OBR is a sack of shit website. I expect no retraction of his article when the 7970X2 variants start to appear. I've followed much of their articles and they're pretty piss poor with accuracy.

    Indeed, they are just biased fanboys, just take a look at how they are NV centric :)

    According to SemiAccurate, AMD has been waiting on process maturity and collecting enough low leakage chips to create the 7990. These binned chips will be on the 7970 GHz edition, which will probably be launching this week.
     
    T4C Fantasy says thanks.
