Since the official launch of the HD 6990 is rumored to happen no later than tomorrow, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that some of its implementations are already starting to show up, one of the first to appear online coming from Asus.
As you might expect, we're not talking about an official announcement here, since we're still one day away from the official launch and the NDA is still in effect, but about somewhat of a slip-up, namely the device being listed for pre-order on a Dutch online shop called Salland.
Of course, a short list of specs is also provided, but, as you might have suspected already, it pretty much falls in line with the rest of the leaks we've come across up until now, starting from the DirectX 11 support.
So, according to the aforementioned source, the new GPU (well, twin GPUs, to be precise) will work at a frequency of 830 Mhz, while also coming equipped with no less than 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory, running at an impressive 5,000 Mhz.
Furthermore, the device will be able to output a total resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, at the same time featuring a variety of connectivity options, including here one DVI port and no less than four mini DisplayPort connectors, while HDMI and D-Sub interfaces are also supported, via appropriate converters.
Now, we were pretty sure that the HD 6990 wasn't going to come cheap, and the guys over at Salland seem to confirm this, since they're asking 715 Euro (1,000 US dollars) for the new card, which is, let's face it, a fairly high price point for most users.
However, since we're not talking about an official announcement, we'll simply have to wait for AMD's official statement on the matter in order to start considering what exactly we'll have to give up (or donate for medical research) in order to afford one such card.
