My System Specs


Expect the 7990 to perform slightly lower than X-fire 7970's. They'll probably downclock the chips just like Nvidia did with the 690.

As to whether they can get the two on one chip (I believe it was pointed out in the article that AMD would have difficulty managing heat/power output), if they could do two Cayman chips on the 6990, they should have no problem going with two fully enabled Tahiti chips on the 7990.

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
