from the looks of it I will need a full tower to house that baby and then maybe hacksaw too.
I guess 30-33 cm. Looks like 30cm to me, given the distance between PCIe plug and output vs the other side of the card.
Could be a "new" chip, but even if it was, it wouldn't matter. Binning can easily give 1100MHz GPUs @ <175W.
Looks to me like they might have managed to give it the powertune features of the just released 7790.
It would explain the higher clocks combined with the apparent lower poweruse.
If these were a bit cheaper like $699 I think they would be much more interesting.
That shush got a good chuckle out of me.
That's kind of fortunate given the TDP of your main rig.
Here is the RUBY clip they showed

4Gamer info on AMD GDC 2013 coverage. (translated to english link)
youre already producing that with that 580
Hmmm, a girl in red beats the shit out of her metal green-ish opponent, suspicious.....
Hopefully you can run it on existing Radeon HD 7xxx hardware.
damn i need an flimsy excuse for my girl that my 6990 died ...... hehehe
AMD show off some motion capture using a webcam at GDC 2013
Imagine mario cart/carmaggedon type game with this.
They sure wanted to make EVERYTHING look as shiny as humanly possible. Even things that shouldnt be shiny.
A drop of water or Extreme high voltage at lowest possible for both GPU will do amazing job.
to me, the only positive aspect that this card might bring is forcing nvidia to lower the prices of titan and gtx 690 altough that seems unlikely. otherwise who would want that stuttering and that awful frame latency? good thing that AMD are adressing this major fault, one game at a time LOL
It looks SHINY *_*
I would hedge a guess and say this will be released when latency issues are fixed/half fixed, so they can advertise how wonderful their crossfire dual chip card works without high frame latency.
Malta chip == cross between Tahiti XT and Tahiti LE. 256-bit memory bus width and package size of Tahiti LE, but the stream processor count of Tahiti XT (2048). Source: my magic arse.
I had a good laugh.
I was pondering feeding him beans to see if we can get more info out of there
That would actually make a lot of sense, except such a chip wouldn't draw 200W each unless @ 1200 MHz or higher. I guess that would account for AMD's claim to "higher performance" than current dual TahitiXT2 cards.
Oh, and I need to retract my comment about size of the card. Looks to be near 40cm, or 16 inches. I say 15 inches, there's a lot of card past where the power plugs are.
Same reference design as the FirePro S10000
The FirePro S10000 PDF spec sheet just says
Full height / full length form factor
Take out your measuring stick
I'm with btarunr magic arse. It has to be a new chip or else its just extremely late. I'm thinking more of the lines of a Pitcairn XT or Tahiti Pro succesor with Bonaire improvements. Bonaire with 6 watt TDP increase along with die-size and they were able to pack a good chunk of performance in there compared to Cape Verde XT.
Since we know the exact length of the PCIE connection. We have the pic of the card. Find the ratio of card length to that PCIE connection and multiply. You should be within .5 in with this method.
Since Most FirePro/GL/Streams are from the same silicon as their Radeon parts with a bios change and major software tweaks for the Fire series.
well both my 4870x2's together are really starting to show just how long in the tooth they really are and this is appealing for sure I am sure I will only be able to afford one but still a foot in the right direction.
Looks like AMD is being really smart here by using 3 big fans as opposed to a blower design, bigger fans = more air flow at lower RPMs, this should keep thermals and acoustics in check, this should be a monster of a card.
The only issue is blowing this heat into the case as mentioned by others, but if your case has a good airflow (and it should) this shouldn't even be a problem
