There's a strong part of me that wants to take 200BTC and WC 2 of these in CF. How long would 2.5GH/s take to make back 200BTC... /doesntcare

Me too  Grin

Well @  ฿31.32 per month,@ $10 each=$313.20 per Month @ current diff  Cool

 About 3 months to pay off each one.I'm guessing retail price @ $1000  Shocked

Out of my league,unless BTC hits $20  Roll Eyes

Your not counting the power cost and new PSU that will be added to the cost. What i want to know is how much is it gonna cost, and more importantly when does it go on sale?

My PSU can handle 2 of these. The cost for me is getting them, which is still unknown.

Why is stuff always more expensive in Europe, I mean that site showing 900EUR equates to be about $1500 USD

"Hardware Canucks has leared that the price will be between $899 and $999 USD"

The only reason I am thinking they would be any better is that I could effectiively run 4x 7970 in a single rig (most of my boards are 3xPCIe16 double spaced)

Isn't 900 Euro closer to like 1125USD?

That PowerColor Devil 13 HD 7990 is not a standard 7990.

It's a higher end hybrid.

I'm sure the ref or standard 7990 will be less than that one  Wink

3 - 8 pin pcie connectors.  Wow.  It would be better for mining to make a card that can get down to two 8 pin connectors and may run at a lower maximum clock rate with far less room for overclocking.  Of course this is not going to happen now that ASICS and FPGA's are around.

They did not build this card with miners in mind specifically. Yes it will mine great, but they built it the way it is for a reason.

True.  It is a top gaming card and most probably would be faster then a reference card by ATI if one does come soon.

*orders dilithium crystals for antimatter PSU*

1) These (and other previous gual-GPU cards) only have 1 CF connector. Means only 2 cards (4 GPUs) in a system.

2) How were you planning to fit 4 seperate triple-slot cards into any case? You'd need a 11 PCIe motherboard, which they don't make.

Uh,not quadcrossfire,but OCTOcrossfire (2 cores per card=8),if you meant 4 cards   Shocked

Extendo PCIE cables will get them hooked up,but the OS using them all could be a problem  Sad

You don't need to make back all the money you pay for the card, just think of it as getting an awesome gaming card for cheap.

Again, you can't do an OCTOcrossfire setup. The cards only physically have 1 CF cable connector!

I remember when they "revealed" this card back in June and it was called a "7970 X2".
http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Powercolor-Radeon-HD-7970-tahiti-dual-Devil13,15939.html

Still can't buy it so I'm not sure what's changed other than the name... Actually, I wonder if AMD gave up on making a reference 7990 with lower power requirements. I suppose the HIS 7970 X2 they revealed in June is also a 7990 now?
