AMD further tease a Dual Hawaii GPU

Lately AMD have been teasing their upcoming Dual Hawaii GPU using its #2betterthan1 campaign.

Yesterday AMD tweeted this picture with this caption;
It’s coming. Do you have what it takes?

Now there are two questions to ask, when is it coming? and what exactly is pictures here?

To answer the first question I don't know, however most hardware sites say it will be within the next two weeks, with videocardz stating that it will launch on the 8th of April. Nothing is confirmed here, but with Nvidia's recent Titan Z announcement I expect AMD's response will not be far behind.

The answer to the second question is again unknown, we clearly see the word Radeon with a circular outline but again I don't know what it is.

So my question for you guys is, what do you think it is? A backplate? a waterblock? A Titan Z? Please post you answers below.

90% it is a Water block

Maybe this, looks stretched because the original image is small and I stretched it to make it 1080.

calling backplate as well.
"do you have what it takes?" $1500?
it's gonna have a waterblock anyways, if AMD are incapable of cooling one of their cores properly they have to watercool two of them.
i5 4670k // MSi MPOWER // 4x4GB Corsair Vengeance Pro 2133MHz
Palit GTX 770 4GB Jetstream // Corsair RM750 // Zalman Z9+
Corsair Force 3 60GB // WD Green 1.5TB // Seagate Barracuda 2TB
Leopold Tenkeyless MX Brown // Zowie FK1 // Steelseries QCK+
Beyerdynamics DT 990 // FiiO E10 // Asus VG248QE // Asus VE228

I can bet its watercooled but i don't see why they would put that huge Radeon logo in the middle of a waterblock.

Looks like the first frame of a promo video, mmmm what's behind the sci fi Radeon bulkhead....

...but could also be a water block.

I reckon the Radeon in the centre is a red herring. They are copying the likes of the 690 and Titan Z by placing the fan in the centre.

Or, to be completely off-the-wall it's an integrated all in one pump and rad mounted on the card, but that's as likely as this thing being quiet
