Hopefully the rumours are true and we could see at least the real specs and picture of the 7990 by computex around June 5.
I want to see benchmarks and was curious since they waited for the gtx 680 come out first.
I got the 7950 on release date price 500$ but I might get a 7990 when it comes out and maybe another for crossfire by end of the year.
I know it will be like an underclocked 7970 crossfire but for 850ish$, that's not a bad deal

AMD doesn't even provide newly implemented features/support for its last generations of GPU's, getting an expensive card on the higher tier end just dooms the idea.

AMD 7990, pfft...they haven't given proper feature implementation and support for 6990.

No, AMD needs to get a hold on their micro-stuttering issues.
Not saying Nvidia has no microstuttering, but it's a lot less.
Currently selling my 6950's and swapping to either 670 or 680.

I'm waiting for the 7990 reviews, no point rushing out for a 690 just yet. Even if it's not as good as the 690, prices should be less inflated by then as there will be more 690's in stock.

I have no microstutter with 7970 Crossfire. I really think people should check over their hardware configs.

I've found out that I had a bad stick of ram before that caused microstuttering.

It can happen but there are a lot of headaches for AMD. It still won't beat the GTX 690, the production cost will be very high and the failure rates will also be high. Are they willing to create a card that will sell at a loss and still won't give them the performance crown? The only thing that case save the day is GTX 690 high price, but this can change if NVIDIA wants, as its production cost allows it.
