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 someone was lucky enough to get an engineering sample of AMD’s upcoming Radeon HD 7990 and decided to put it up for auction on eBay to make a quick buck! The opening bid started at $0.99 and as of writing this post it is at $3,050! The eBay listing says, “You are bidding on the world’s first ‘Malta’ graphics card – engineering sample. Don’t miss your chance to be the first to own the world’s fastest graphics card.”
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).
