The card looks to long to me.

If it isn't a fake then it will be interesting to see how it performs with just a single 120mm rad to cool both GPU's.

I am believing nothing that is posted today, if it gets posted tomorrow then I will still be sceptical but I will find it more believable than something posted on April fools.

It does look like a shoop though, it looks a lot like someone has shooped a Nvidia ref cooler.
Only 2x8 pins as well? I doubt that very much.

It would be pretty awkward if everyone got hyped about this hybrid design and then Chiphell is like "lol April fool's" and AMD releases the card with their own design ty aircooler.

Well spotted
AMD don't use them any more yet that pic clearly shows it as having one.

The pic itself is off some random person on a Chinese forum, Chip Hell just made a news article about it. This kind of stuff happens with most new cards so i'm not surprised by this.

I can't tell what bothers me more about it, whether that most people think it's legit on facebook or that the air cooler on it looks like a XFX card.

The pictures show quite clearly that there isn't a bridge, there's exactly like the 290X the dots there, I'm guessing for certain testing purposes?
(Posted this before I actually saw it was pointed out).

And no the XFX custom 7990's backplate is very different.

If it's a fake it's very well done.
