AMD's Antilles card pixellized

Written by Slobodan Simic

Two Cayman's and a new cooler
The guys from it.oc.com.tw site managed to snag a picture of AMD's Matt Skynner holding up what appears to be the upcoming AMD's HD 6990 dual-GPU Antilles card. According to the info, it will be powered by two 40nm Cayman GPUs and although the specs haven't been officialy revealed the new cooler was detailed.

It looks like that AMD needed to completely redesign the cooler and the upcoming Antilles dual-GPU card will use a design that hasn't been seen on graphics cards, at least not yet. Apparently the card will use a cooler with a cylindrical blower that will draw air from the rear of the card and distribute it over a vapor-chamber heatsink, or to be precise heatsinks since we are talking about a dual-GPU card.

As it was expected, the card will need two 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors and should be released sometimes during this quarter. You can find the original post here.

Looks like one heavy beast! Hope he didn't need to put his arm in a sling afterwards.

BTW the other pic is a lot better for showing the product size.

Edit - Wow I still get modded down for a totally uninflammatory post, with actual extra useful information and a jab at this guy whom I'm pretty sure doesn't work out very often.

So I'll actually make this worthy of a flamebait post:

NVIDIA IS BOLLOCKS, GO CRY TO INTEL FOR MORE CASHOLA. YOU NV FANS MAKE ME WANT TO WATCH THE MATRIX TRILOGY AD NAUSEUM UNTIL I GET THE POINT! UP YOUR NOSE WITH A ROBBER HOSE!

The card that will annihilate 480GTX in every single scenario.

Any NV fanboy that disputes this is either deluded or Fudo. They should stop crying 'wah wah wah' and go and tidy their bedroom before Mommy gets upset.

EDIT: yes of course I mean 580GTX. It will be owned all ends up.

#3 dan your comment really is invalid, nothing to do with card at hand other than yes it will be faster than the outdated 480GTX.

Other than that 6990 will hopefully contribute to bring prices a bit down on Nvidia's 580GTX and Nvidias own dual gpu card 590.

And yes let's compare Trucks and Ferraris even tho they're not in the same class or price range.

The way i see it is that GTX 580 will be fastest single gpu card, and real question is can Nvidia do dual Fermi card?

Maybe yes but with GF114, so they will probbably use two Gtx 560Ti on same PCB...but core clock will have to be much lower than GTX 560 vanilla

We will see tommorow how powerfull is new GTX 560Ti.
But i think that HD 6990 will be new king

Hey dan, why do you compare the antilles with the "outdated" GTX 480? It goes with out saying that it will beat the GTX 480. However, having said that, I think you may have meant to type GTX 580

The card does look big but what do you expect with a Monster Card that's going to be the Fastest Graphics Thingy on earth... Say Hello To My Big Friend...
