Oh damn!  2nd half of July is the new rumor!

Even though summer is in the full swing, it's not that companies are taking their time off. According to our sources, AMD is gearing up to launch the dual-GPU card, illusive Radeon HD 7990 in the second half of July.

Known under the codename "New Zealand", Radeon HD 7990 represents AMD's highest-end part from the Southern Islands architecture. Consisting out of two Tahiti XT GPUs and 6GB GDDR5 memory (special edition 7990s could reach 12GB), Radeon HD 7990 goes head to head against the GeForce GTX 690.

By default, AMD has the advantage in terms of 50% more video memory (GTX 690 has 4GB), significantly higher memory bandwidth and the new Turbo mode, technology similar to the Turbo mode used on NVIDIA Kepler-based cards with a few major differences.

Our sources are telling us that the boards are starting to be sampled, all in preparation for the product launch in the second half of July. We will release more details as the launch day approaches, as well as the final retail price, which still isn’t decided as we write this story. While we know AMD's press deck, the company has a long tradition of changing the price at the last moment.

At the same time, a lot of AMD partners are running the card in their labs but aren't aware of the actual product launch. We will see in just a few weeks time.

Any news on this? I heard sometime in August, but I'd imagine we'd be hearing a lot more if it was right around the corner.

Looks like mid to late august from this article. But it looks like the price is gonna be more than double of a 7970, so i don't see the appeal.

The appeal is fitting 2 inside my case, where I wouldn't normally be able to fit 4 7970s.

So tell me what you think? I'm getting a new card for gaming/casual mining in my personal computer. Should I spring for this, or wait for the 7990 and put a bit more money into that?

I would prefer a non ref 7970 for home, as 7990 will be certainly noisier

Sorry to necro this but I have to ask, is anyone using 7990 on mining currently and how is it doing? Worth getting these instead of 2x the amount in 7970s?
Atleast the availability seems good now on these beasts.

That would be nice, with a proper voltage control for both GPUs and binned chips that could be a hit in scrypt mining. Maybe its too late for SHA256 if those ASICs are arriving at expected speed in the coming months.

Even the current 7990 offerings do look good and the availability seems to be in check also, I'll have to seriously consider that against 7970s.
