    Guru3d brings us news that the dual GPU AMD 7990 might be out in March. However, it's just a rumour, there's no source cited and a quick google didn't turn up anything, so it doesn't seem solid enough to post as news, therefore I've put it here.

    Speculate away people. :)

    Alright. I've also heard that the 4 GPU limit has been raised to 8, so now you can quad Crossfire 7990's.

    That's very interesting indeed - assuming you're not pulling my chain. :laugh:

    Just imagine the power consumption of a system like that running flat out! :eek:

    I saw some chart the other day that had all the lower end cards being released in December, 7950/7970 in January and the 7990 in March. Of course, it's all rumor. It could of been started by anyone so as far as I know, there will most likely be a 7 series for AMD and it will most likely be released by the end of time.

    Well, at least it's a plausible. You can let yourself "believe" a little more when rumoring about AMD's GPUs ;)


    Oh, they'll certainly be out by 12-12-12.

    I keep hearing wispers that AMD may have changed the naming to support a Tri-GPU card that is suppose to also get released due to the 28nm process allowing it. Anyhow, this is what I read.

    Replacement Parts:
    HD 6950 - HD 7850
    HD 6970 - HD 7870
    HD 6990 - HD 7970 (Dual-GPU)
    -------- - HD 7990 (Tri-GPU)

    It may not be impossible to bring out a tri GPU card, due to the 28nm die shrink there is less heat to dissipate which if the speed of each GPU is set low enough, we could definitely see a triple gpu card next year.
