Well, if I were AMD I'd go for broke too. May as well max out performance to offset the inevitable downsides- because if history has taught us anything about AMD product launches, and duallies I particular, a couple of things are certain 1. The card will launch with half baked beta drivers 2. It will launch in the same timeframe as a AAA gaming title that has no CrossfireX profile. ...and sure as sh*t, a dual GK 110 (GTX 790?) arrives in the same time frame to make the "worlds fastest card" argument another debatable topic.
