It's going to produce some ridiculous heat.

Hopefully it comes with a liquid cooler or something.

It's amazing how many more NVidia users complain about AMD drivers.....than AMD users...

Are they sure that this isn't part of the thermi series as well? I'm betting it'll have a pretty hefty underclock at least for the reference cooler.

Don't be naive! The improvement is there and they are catching up faster than than ever before, next year drivers won't matter any more because they will be more or less equal.

All of attention is on G-Sync and Mantle this will determine next year's trend and the leading positions, both are great I want both but that's just wishful thinking.

Not that I've seen. Most of those whining about AMD drivers in these types of threads are NVidia users that have little or no experience with AMD drivers....or their only experience was nearly a decade ago.

they used an excelent cooling solution on the 7990, they could bring another one to this monster, and for people complaining about drivers the 7990 is number one in almost all benchs ( frame pacing is actualy working )
