    If it's the first desktop card built using GCN 2.0 technology, surely that makes it a next generation card?

    Even if the 2.0 is a marketing gimmick, I was going to say that as well. It likely is the new gen. By any realistic measure, this *should* be priced between 7770 and 650ti as well. That's a decent size gap...between ~100-150 USD.

    Not only is this likely a new generation part, it also is the one worth noting. I say that because a 896sp part, if it exists, will simply be a 7850 2GB replacement (or very very close to it). If you question that, simply do the math.

    You could compare known stock frequencies/bw versus what is likely for such a part (1075-1100mhz and 128-bit/~7gbps or 192-bit/~5gbps) and come to a similar conclusion, but look at catalysts' overclocking maximums. They are a clear hint of where amd wants products to be segmented.

    7850 is a max of 1050mhz. (1024/896)*1050 = 1200mhz. IOW, an 896sp part will be tuned to hit around 1200mhz overclocked...like any other 28nm part not limited by low voltage and/or artificial tdp restraints (like 7850 2GB).

    They should have made the PCB smaller to fit mITX boards. That would have made it perfect for such applications and have appealed to a much broader market.

    Agreed, NV has made an effort to slim down the size of their reference boards, this still looks pretty long. I dont mind my 7850's size right now, but if i were to put it in a mITX case (which ive considered) id still rather having something an inch or 2 shorter.

    Just to clarify: that's a picture of a 7770 for reference; nobody's got a picture of the 7790 yet. (Chances of a shorter PCB, however, are slim to none.)
