Did a Google news search for "Radeon 7990" limiting results published in the last 24 hours.

This came up: (Appears to be legit? - multiple search results have this)

Is it just me, or does that look like a triple slot wide card?

Yeah it looks like it. Looks like it is way long too, maybe more than 13 inches.

No they wrote its a own Design of Powercolor, can be a 7990, but not for 100%.

If you look on the AMD site they advertise a similar looking Powercolor 7970...

Question is why ? GPUs are out, it's all about FPGA mining now.

Gpu mining will never be out.. a lot of people dont care about power usage.... I have a few places that I can run rigs free of charge...

Yeah but I don't want $20,000 worth of FPGAs if bitcoin goes belly-up one day.  At least I can resell GPUs later.

Cuz you can't play SWToR on a Bitforce...

Typical FPGAs offer significantly less performance than even a 2 generation old GPU.  FPGAs offer lower power consumption, but that's about it.

It is true. GPUs will soon be out of the game.

Just wait for 28nm FPGAs and your GPU will be left in the dust in terms of both performance, cost and efficiency.

I am trying to sell all my GPUs before reward halv and before others flood ebay with used mining GPUs.

People that don't see FPGAs coming hard and fast don't have their eyes open ! Nobody likes it but its the way it is going to be ...

Trying to imply I am promoting BFLs ? I think they are a scam ...

GPUs are on the way out ( even for free elec ) and if you don't see it then it will fall like a brick on you in Dec 2012

Soooo You don't think current FPGAs are worth it, but you don't think GPUs will last? What do you suggest, wait for some uber-cheap, high-hash FPGA that has yet to be developed/manufactured/sold?

Also, if you have free elec, what are the downsides of GPU mining, exactly?

Look at yohan's solution from a reputable UK company. Not a scam but 100% professional and not BS like BFL with all the delays ... they are a joke.

Downsides of GPUs : decreasing resale value, high noise, high heat now it is summer, AC costs, maintenance for fans etc. and loads of others.

FPGA are pretty much set and forget compared to GPUs which crash regularly.
