Default AMD GCN2.0, 7970 replacement?

Just spotted this at guru3d, could be nvidia's GK110 1024?core (~3.8tflops) response..





GCN 2.0:
2304 SPs(96 32 bit ALUs per CU)
192 TMUs(8 TMUs per CU)
48 ROPs(2 ROPs per CU)

2304 * 2 * 1.0GHz => 4,608 tflops


^
The numbers could be fake, but tflops count kinda covers itself

I remember seeing pictures of an AIB partner's product lineup for the 7900 series before it launched on Jan 9th that had the 2304sp part on the list, but it was crossed out. Does anyone remember where that was linked from?


I think this is real...and nV is gonna be butthurt for quite some time.

Spelling mistakes happen, even in large companies...

Has there been any info on the 7990 dual GPU card. I thought that was originally due next month.

Yeah, there was talk about it a little while ago, but nothing lately. With any luck AMD will spring it just after the 680 launches. That would throw a cat amongst the pigeons.

Heh. Install inspector and enable 4x4 SSAA and watch your framerates plummet.

That is.. unless you have multi-GPU.. like me.
