Droooool.......

I am skeptical of the price point (last I heard it was planned to be $850), but there are some interesting details here:

The internal bridge is quite interesting.  "The new AMD flagship solution has two on-board graphics processor, but in the future be placed on the board three or four of these GPU. As always, everything depends on the question of the layout of elements on a single PCB and cooling."  I wonder if the OS (via drivers) will see it as two GPUs or see some bridge with n-cores behind it?

Also, I don't understand the stream processors enumeration.  "(1536 + 1536) * 2"  Does that mean that it's using 7950 cores with 1536 each or are they saying it's a totally new core with 3072 each x 2?  If the latter, it will be a mining monster!  If it's the former, then it's more meh.


UPDATE: Yeah, this is definitely a fake.  Lot of effort put into it though!  Props for that.

Seems like an April fool's joke on second examination.  I'm skeptical of the whole bridge thing and the cool looks really lame for a flagship product.  I'm calling shenanigans.

Same PCB as the Powercolor 6870x2. Guess it is time to ignore the Internet for the next ~36 hours.
