Also there are rumors that they are working on a new card with twin barts cores, a change from the cayman cores that are supposed to be used in the HD 6990. From my understanding though wouldn't this just add a more affordable dual gpu card to the lineup?
Like Soultribunal mentioned, that new card could just be that they cannot fit two caymans on the same card for power management reasons....

There will be only ONE AMD dual GPU card. We all hope it's a dual Cayman. If it's dual Barts, it wont live to the 5970's reputation and longevity...
