    Have you tried the 3 monitors in Portrait mode instead of Landscape? It will give you a much better aspect ratio something similar to 4:3

    How do you defend AMD's ego this time?

    And 850W power supply. [​IMG]

    Now its all down to scaling. Will the GTX690 or this HD7990 scale better. CF vs SLI.

    I dont think AMD is ever going to release a reference HD7990. They are far to late at this point.

    so, is this the real HD 7990 or "HD 7990" by PowerColor?

    and actually there is no real HD 7990 from AMD?

    because I found this :

    said the "only"???

    and btw some pic of it :

    It's funny how the makers are dumb enough to put one of the "devil13" markings on a place that once the card is installed you'll never be able to see.

    holy epeen enchancer!!!

    I bet it's faster than 690, but uses more power under load and possibly louder/hotter.

    One thing I'm curious about is if/how the zero core thing will work on this beast.

    It will probably work, it's just a crossfire between two GPUs on the same PCB.

    Seriously, this is just dumb though. There will be about 20 people that buy it and a guarantee it will cost over $1000.

    I can't believe no won is releasing a 7870x2. Now that they are down to $250 each, A 7870x2 would sell like crazy if under $550. At that price it would destroy a GTX680 and even give the GTX690 a run for it's money. ITX boards will continue to take over and that,
    of course, means only one graphics slot.

    The 6870x2 was late to the party, but it had near perfect scaling when released and offered a great amount a value for the dollar.

    Pretty much ^ but lets be honest here, the GTX 690 is a wonderfully elegant and beautifully engineered dual GPU card that offers both excellent performance whilst also running cool, quiet and not consuming silly amounts of power in the process.

    This may well end up faster overall by a couple of percent, but it will do it at the expense of everything else the 690 shines at.

    It's a triple slot brick for starters.

    A 2 X 7850 only requiring 2x 6 Pins would be awesome to.

    Hi Sexy, your. Colour scheme goes very well with my Red Dragon Moddes Gaming Case.

    This is not your ordinary HD 7999, so it should be faster, run cooler and suck back less power than a normal HD 7999. IMO.

    There is not a reference 7990 so I am afraid you are wrong sah!

    Also typically cards like this would draw power than the reference design ( if one existed) to to higher clock speeds and focus on overclockability ( not a word!) : ]

    For example look at ghz edition AMD 7970s vs original reference design, power draw is a LOT higher. ( to guarantee stability)
