AMD has officially announced their latest flagship graphics card in the Radeon HD 7990. This is a dual-GPU solution that is based off two 28 nm “Tahiti” chips. AMD says this card is different than the HD 7990 “New Zealand” graphics cards that were launched in Q3 of 2012 as it has a much lower power draw, requiring only two PCIe power connectors. The new card also features a dual-slot cooling solution, which AMD says is “whisper quiet”. Most of the “New Zealand” cards required three PCIe connectors and triple slot cooling solutions.
AMD’s latest graphics card the Radeon HD 7990 is expected to launch this week so it is no doubt we would see some benchmarks surface before the official release. Below you will find benchmarks testing the Radeon HD 7990 against NVIDIA’s GTX 690 and NVIDIA’s GTX Titan. The two tests include 3DMark Fire Strike and Battlefield 3 running at 5760 x 1080 resolution. Read on to see the benchmark results!
It looks like we now know the launch date for the very anticipated AMD Radeon HD 7990 “Malta” dual-GPU graphics card! According to a report on OCaholic AMD plans to launch the graphics card on April 24, 2013. The report also states that reviews of the card should already be underway. The AMD Radeon HD 7990 will feature a pair of 28nm “Tahiti” GPUs and will have a total of 4096 stream processors, and 6 GB of GDDR5 memory across two 384-bit wide memory interfaces.
At GDC’s press briefings this week AMD previewed the reference-design of the Radeon HD 7990 dual-GPU graphics card. This is the first public showing of the card and while AMD is not saying much we do know that this has two series 7900 GPU’s on it and it is being called by the codename “Malta”. AMD has really taken their time with the Radeon HD 7990 and actually allowed their partners to create 7900 series cards with two GPU’s on them, but this card will be the reference.
