AMD "Tahiti LE" Brand Named Radeon HD 7890

A little earlier this week, it was reported that AMD is working on a new Radeon HD 7800 series graphics card based on the company's 28 nm "Tahiti" silicon. According to a new report, the so-called "Tahiti LE" SKU has been brand named Radeon HD 7890. Although clock speeds, core and memory configurations are still under the wraps, the new SKU, according to the report, is being designed to be 15% faster than GeForce GTX 660 on average, while being similarly priced. AMD is gunning for the crucial X'mas shopping season, when apparently, a few cool people gift high-performance graphics cards.

^^ or........... like the (another)article said its chips that couldnt quite cut it as a 7950 so they made this card instead? ^^

AMD is different than Nvidia of course, but last I recall the odd 560ti 448 core you could only SLI with another 448c. Again, AMD is different and you can Crossfire similiar families. At worst CrossfireX with itself. At best, both 78xx and 79xx series.
I just follow the Charts, its hopefully possible to xfire between the 7900 and 7800 series then with this card.

I think I'll just wait on the 8000 series. I want a pair of HD8870s.
