Enter New Zealand! The Real GPU King
According to a report from techpowerup, the AMD 7990 will have 6 Gb memory, and will be clocked at 1 Ghz, and will spot two Tahiti XT (7970) GPUs for only $849. According to this rumour, the 7970 will price drop to around ~$399 USD range by the time the 7990 is released. It appears that memory will be limited to a mear 1250 mhz, but it will be interesting to see if AMD has a turbo setting in mind. Due to the new 70mm fan design, this card should run much quieter than a reference 6990.
The 7990 will be released April 17th, 2012.

Mu Guess is that this card will have a dual bios, with the overclocked bios @ 1050 Mhz / 1250 Mhz , and will perform roughly 100-110% better than a single 7970, and 90-110% better than a single GTX 680. This will be the most power hungry consumer GPU to date.
