Radeon HD 8990 

Expected December, 2013
  • 1 GHz
  • 6 GB GDDR5

6GB-12GB of RAM is absolutely insane - a true monster for PCs, but just how many games take advantage of that now?

The dual gpu 8990 card, as well as the rest of the 8000 series will support DirectX 11, Shader Model 5.0, and OpenGL 4.2.

Even with multiple monitors and insane amounts of anti-aliasing, I can't see any gamer getting close to 12GB of VRAM usage.

Urg.... it hurts to see the wrong specs of the HD 8990 , i made a screenshot of the actual card running in my gaming rig I included 2 picture , maybe it will help to correct the errors
might even run 4k single card :). of course with amd drivers... :(
Along with the 784 bit Memory bus.
pass mark is not a good benchmark to measure graphic cards.
It looks like the performance will be AMAZING, but I honestly doubt they'll be even close to getting the specs that high, the Titan was hard enough to produce. Even the new "R9 290X" isnt that fast. I call BS on this one.
This rumored HD 8990 clock speeds & raw performance looks like BS , no way amd will be even capable of getting to those speeds + I'm pretty sure their drivers will only use about 0.00000001% of the power , because let's be honest amd drivers SUCK , all they care about is money , we deserve better companies .
