No efforts were seen for the building up of the custom board on the Radeon HD 7990 since the launch of the graphics card by AMD with this design, which was launched earlier this year. But XFX has taken its first step and challenged the AMD’s design as it introduces the newest Radeon HD 7990 Triple Dissipation GPU, which will soon be launched.
AMD has officially released their Radeon HD 7990 graphics card today and EK Water Blocks is hard at work on a full-cover water block for the new dual-GPU card. The upcoming water block will be called the EK-FC7990 SE and will directly cool both GPUs, memory as well as the VRMs (voltage regulation module). Water will flow directly over these areas. With this block users will be able to have stable overclocks as these critical areas will be kept nice and cool.
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!
With the launch of the AMD Radeon HD 7990 less then a week away it now seems we have the most detailed specifications for the card to date. The card will feature two 28nm “Tahiti” GPUs with 8.6 billion transistors and 4096 stream processors, 256 texture units and 64 ROPs. Below you can see a detailed chart comparing the Radeon HD 7990 to the HD 7970 GHz Edition and the HD 7950.
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.
I looks like someone has got their hands on a pair of AMD Radeon HD 7990 “Malta” reference-design graphics cards. Someone sent the photo you see below to the guys over at TechPowerUp, which shows the two cards in operation inside of a pretty nice looking system. Just late last month AMD surprised everyone by showing off the HD 7990 at the Game Developers Conference (GDC).
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.
Sapphire invited us up to their suite at CES to check out some of their latest products. We were shown their brand new Intel X79 board the Pure Black X9, which has the new PCI-Express 3.0 slots on it. Also on display in their suite was the Edge HD3 Mini PC which uses AMD’s E450 APU. Finally we were shown the Sapphire VID2X. This product takes a single video single and converts it to two full HD DVI signals for a dual-display setup.
