12 AMDs Dual GPU HD 7990 to make its debut at Computex

Word has come out that AMD isn't planning to unveil its dual-GPU based Radeon HD 7990 "New Zealand" SKU until early June (at Computex in Taipei which kicks off on June 5), this despite NVIDIA pulling the trigger on its GeForce GTX 690 later in the week.

'Confirmed' info on the card remains scarce with partners claiming that very little detail has surfaced to date. We do know of the two 28nm Tahiti GPUs that the card will be equipped with however, which are presumed to be fully enabled comprising a total of 4096 stream processors and 6GB of GDDR5 memory on tap. The card is also said to be capable of driving a 6-monitor Eyefinity setup as standard.

Clock rates are no doubt still being played around with and it is likely AMD is looking to see how the GTX 690 fares in the performance stakes before making final adjustments to the reference model's specs in this regard.

Assuming this latest report holds true, NVIDIA will only have a month of free roam at the top end before AMD's counterpart shifts things up a good deal.
