The heat is a boon in the winter, considering most "portable space heaters" run around 1500 watts, a PC can easily replace one in a cold room.

That made me laugh. Playing BF3 (or whatever) to stay warm.

I don't doubt these cards will go out in the 900+ territory, that's a lot of home heating fuel.

So what's the latest on the actual release date?  I'd love to pick one of these up for BLOPS2.

Anyone complaining about there being 4x 6 pin PCIe Power Connectors on the 7990 after being told of the cards Multi Phase power delivery system is an idiot (or at the very least an illiterate main-streamer entering a world well beyond his/her intellectual grasp/comprehension). Insulting? Just being 100% honest... there is no getting around that.

But then again most of these folks are from the same generation that considers Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber to be "Artists". Of course... "pre-packaged, mass produced frozen Turkey diners taste just like a REAL HOME COOKED TURKEY MEAL" Said Nobody Ever.

If it performs better with Multi Phase power delivery by allowing for more stable clock rates (Overclock or not) and more efficient use of power...

I'm sold.


But the thing is, all those connectors are DC. The multi-phase arrangement is part of the PWM system, which doesn't care how many DC connectors there are as long as it gets enough volts and amps. You could have one big ass pair of wires per card, and still have stable power, since the PWM system does all the magic.

OMG FOUR pci power connects?

I love it!  This will be the most epicest video card since the Voodoo5 6000.



Maybe ATi should include an external power supply too?   Grin

I remember my V5 5500. It was a beautiful thing, too bad 3dfx stopped innovating and rested on their laurels so much.

What ever happened to 3dfx anyhow?  Didn't they get absorbed by a larger company somewhere along the way?

I believe Nvidia bought them out around 2000-01.


EDIT: I remember my Voodoo 5500 AGP well, was the only worthwhile card for N64 emulation.

You could have one big ass pair of wires per card, and still have stable power, since the PWM system does all the magic.

Actually it does care and care a lot because not every PSU is a monster single rail of 12v. Love em or hate them multi rail PSU's often can't deliver the amps needed to a single 8pin connector. Instead of forcing people to upgrade their PSU's when they make dumb choices on their six rail 1200W  monster (or two rail 700W shitbox) , they're accommodating them with this design.

So obvious.

Ya that showed up a few months ago. Looks sweet, but it's not an official 7990 (it's more of a 7970X2). Still, I expect it to be a killer card.

Ps Are they using GHz edition (tahiti2) chips undervolted and downclocked to 925MHz? That would make the most sense for a custom card with these clocks.

considering you can get two 7970's for $740  Id hope the price is around $750 tops ... not $900...  but then again by the time it comes out GPU mining might be unprofitable.

You can get them for $370 each, but that's not ATI's official MSRP. That's actually $425, or $499 for the GHz versions.
