Based on what? Poster bias?
It doesn't look good power and heat wise.
I don't think its bad. Dual 7970s at 849$ and 1ghz? That site is stating that clockspeeds will be 1GHz, Thats not bad at all, as long as the fan isn't horrible like the 6990 fan was. Also these cards are much better candidates for water cooling than the GK104, because they're not voltage locked like every 690. Its almost near pointless to water cool a reference 680. No wait it is pointless except for eliminating noise.AMD's design alternate as update the revision of these cards can carry GHz Edition was developed with the phrase GPUs withMight be clocked at 1 GHz core frequency is expressed. On the other hand, the Radeon HD 7970 models with customized design, came to the stage under the same etkinkik. Officially together doğrulanmamakla Asus Matrix series Radeon HD 7970 model is claimed to exhibit at Computex 2012 fair.
a stock 670 does not normally beat a 7970 at 1920x1080. it matches it overall as it wins some and loses some. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_670/28.htmlIn high resolution, mutli-monitor gaming it will end up beating the 690 in many games. Notice how at 1920x1080 the 670 beats the 7970, but at absurdly high eyefinity resolutions the 7970 sometimes beats even the 680? The superior memory bandwidth available thanks to a 384-bit bus will ensure the 7990 will be the multimonitor single card king, at least when you consider it's $150 cheaper.
If that's the case, things must be really weird between AMD and its partners. For partners to launch a dual GPU card before AMD in this manner is unheard of.I read the article and I saw no references at all to AMD launching HD7990 or its price.
It says: "Partners working on the model of AMD's Radeon HD 7970 X2".
Also, there is no evidence that the card will debut at Computex. Rumours suggest that it may be presented during Computex 2012, but so far no detailed information has surfaced. We could see some manufacturers such as PowerColor do a special HD7970 X2 card (like they did with the 6870 X2) but I am not seeing any info that a 1Ghz HD7990 is launching any time soon.
No... based on 7970 power and heat numbers. It's simple math. GTX 690 has a power target of 263W, AMD isn't magically going to figure out a way to take 200W out of the equation.
Better binned GPUs have lower leakage. It may have higher power consumption than the GTX 690 but you have to remember that the process has matured quite a bit from launch. I don't understand why the HD7970 is getting the GTX 480 status, it only uses around 30w more on average. That chart above is based on one game, which the GTX 680 performs poorly on, go figure.
Yea, I don't get it either. I've seen him do this in other threads too. In the system he linked, the 7970 uses a whopping 8% more power than the GTX680 system.
Somehow he tries to equate that to the 32% more power the GTX480 system uses over the 5870 system below. If you are to believe AMD, they claim that the process has matured and now higher clocks at lower power consumption are possible.
I don't think performance is going to be an issue for this card. I don't think heat or power use will either. But going by the number of Crossfire driver problem threads I've seen, I'm not sure I would be willing to take the leap of faith this card would require. I had two 5870's in Crossfire, I got into it after the drivers were mature and had nothing but a great experience with it. I don't think I would attemp two Radeon 7xxx GPU's in Crossfire as the drivers are today, though.
