Looks like the 7990 will be delayed....  bummer


from: http://videocardz.com/30786/amd-radeon-hd-8970-speculation-radeon-hd-7990-delayed
Code:
Radeon HD 7990 delayed
According to ORB-Hardware Radeon HD 7990 may be delayed because AMD cannot produce sufficient cooler for this card (which requires lots of power – far more than Radeon HD 6990). Card is not planned for first and second quarter of this year.

That dude from OBR is a huge nvidia fanboy and is completely biased in 99% of his articles. He has a hard on for nvidia.
79xx cards have no problem with cooling I call BS.

OBR is a complete troll.  Trust what he says lower than any other FUD generator on the internet.

NVidia's dual GPU (GK-104) reported to be scheduled for May.
I don't think AMD will want to trail nVidia's offering longer than a month for both revenue and marketing reasons.

Those insanely expensive enthusiast cards generate the most revenue per unit sold and having spearheaded the introduction of the 28nm GPUs to the market AMD won't delay their dual GPU cards for an extended amount of time and allow nVidia to take the lead by default.

Personally, I'm waiting for June with my mining hardware purchases...

I am seriously considering buying the butterfly labs singles instead.  8 of them will cost 4500 and get 6 gigs on one rig.

And you aren't even limited to 8 per rig either. Up to 100 max Grin

Indeed. I am not buying anything till AMD brings out the 7990 and Nvidia Kepler is proven to be exceptional at mining or something along those lines :

http://www.fudzilla.com/home/item/26308-nvidia-gtx-680-pixellized-in-more-detail

At this point is it pretty 90% clear that the low end Nvidia will have 1536 shaders.

I keep thinking about this and if it will mine or not properly ...

my guess it will be as good as a 6950 for mining.. from this quote:

TDP of around 200W (190W to be precise). When combined with 1536 shader

I am getting excited already :

-no fugly SDK that breaks stuff each new revision
-no damn CPU bug
-no need to have xserver working ( Nvidia is actually used very extensively in GPGPU communities )
-no stupid hardcoded 8 GPU limit
-much better drivers for Linux ( they are now part of Linux foundation ! )

I am not even a fanboy. I just hope they come out with a dual GPU capable of trashing that 7990. I hate not having another option when it comes to GPU mining cards.

Sick and tired of AMD and their bad drivers and quirky software ...

I fail to see how cooling a 7990 would be the problem, as they did release 6990, a 375W card after all. 7970 is barely more power hungry than 6970 anyway, plus they could always pull a 5970 and undervolt it.

7970 has so much overclocking headroom that they probably could heavily undervolt it and still keep it at 925 stock clock. 5970/6990 were both more or less underclocked.

That said... there could be other good reasons as to why these cards won't appear for a while if ever. Smiley

AMD is waiting to see the final performance of the GTX 680 and launch a counter attack with Radeon HD 7990 as early as April. There is no solid date at this time, but it should not take that long to see the card in the market.

Makes sense.  They have the top card.  7970 has a lot of potential headroom.  Wait for the 680 and adjust parameters of 7990 to optimize performance, noise, and cost.

Why launch before 680 and risk being too expensive, to noisy, or too slow?  Since 7970 is currently "the card" the ball is in NVidia's court.
