Editors already got samples in their hands
Posted by Marc Büchel
According to our sources, which can't be named for obvious reasons, AMD is preparing to launch its new HD 7990 Malta dual-GPU graphics card on April 24th. The selected members of the press and their editors should already have the new graphics card in their hands and have been given a green light for the April 24th.
There are still a lot of unknowns as we might be looking at a limited launch with only some AIB partners, but we will surely hear more as we draw closer to the April 24th. We also might be looking at a classic paper launch while it is still not clear if the new HD 7990 graphics card will be available in retail/e-tail on the same date.
In case you missed it, the new graphics card should feature some sort of improved Tahiti GPUs as it only need two 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors but still promises very high GPU clocks. The reference edition, pictured earlier, will be using a dual-slot triple-fan cooler.
On a similar note, the Benchmark.rs review site posted three rather interesting pictures of a "mystery" graphics card, which means that selected editors are already playing with it in their labs.
