Seeing blurry pictures of an unreleased Radeon that were taken with AMD's blessing is an uncommon occurrence. Yet earlier today, Japanese website 4Gamer.net posted several images of the upcoming Radeon HD 6990, which it says AMD GPU chief Matt Skynner displayed publicly as part of AMD's "Asia Pacific Fusion Tech Day" in Singapore.
4Gamer.net's photos show a relatively long dual-slot card cloaked in a black shroud with a single, red blower sitting in the middle, apparently between the two GPUs. The board features eight- and six-pin PCI Express connectors, a single CrossFire connector, one DVI output, and four Mini DisplayPort outputs. The outputs are arranged along a single row, with a vent taking up all of the space above them. Hey, that blower probably moves quite a bit of air.
According to the roadmap AMD showed last November, the Radeon HD 6990 should be out this quarter. The company hasn't announced specifications yet, but 4Gamer.net talks of dual Cayman GPUs—like the ones that power existing members of the Radeon HD 6900 series. (Thanks to Fudzilla for the link.)
