AMD pulling out the big guns early, I didn't think we would see the 7990 until spring/summer time.

6gb of RAM as well, nothing is stopping that beast

Well at the moment its only useful for multi montior or high res monitors so more importantly is the clock speeds and how well they work on the same pcb.

But it's "the" fastest single card, making it "the" best single card there is on the GPU market. When the 7990 comes out it will be "the" fastest dual card on the market especially with 6gb of RAM 3gb for each core unlike the MARS II with 1.5gb of RAM for each core.

These cards are made for multi monitor setups they aren't made to be used at 1080p and what is the point in buying one apart from e-peen if you don't have a multi monitor set up?

When I said nothing will stop this beast I meant games or monitor set up not that cards coming out in the future wont.

I Feel sorry for case manufacturers, they are going to have to start rethinking the ATX case. it is bound to be longer than the 6990.

I guess the release of 7990 will be dependent on what is going to Nvidia. They are the first to be drawn, they have to wait now.

Wrong. 7990, just like a 6990 is a high end gpu. For high end hardware you need high end housing. As far as i know almost all high end cases in the market easily cope with such length. I mean cmon, you could fit a 6990 even in a Fractal's Core 3000 when hdd cage removed.

they should start making gpus wider instead of longer like the mars II etc... and start making cases with extend wide pci brackets... would help with smaller cases and weight distribution

Yup, The Mars 2 fits in most of the top end mid - high tower cases and I doubt the 7990 would be as big as that.
