Manufacturers Preparing Radeon HD 7970 X2?
What comes immediately to mind when we think about dual-gpu cards, are Radeon HD 7990 and Geforce GTX 690 models. However, there’s still no Radeon HD 7990 on a horizon. Earlier leaks suggested that it will be presented during Computex 2012, but so far no detailed information has surfaced. DonanimHaber reports that some manufacturers are tired of waiting for actual Radeon HD 7990 model from AMD, so they will come up with something new.
If any manufacturer would be preparing dual-gpu Radeon HD 7970 based card, that would be PowerColor. Last year, during Computex 2011, they presented dual-gpu Radeon HD 6970, which was called Radeon HD 6970 X2. New HD 7970 X2 would be a reponse for NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 690.
From my experience, when some card is being prepared for an official release are always some leaks — photograph or at least some verified specs, but so far there’s nothing about HD 7990. What’s more, there are always more leaks about AMD products than NVIDIA’s (like GTX 690).
So is Computex bringing some new graphics cards to AMD’s lineup? That’s quite possible, if not HD 7990 then 7970 X2, or at least HD 7970 GHz Edition. Unfortunately, we will have to wait 10 days for any verification.
