Sapphire has stepped up to the plate by showing off a dual Cayman-based Radeon HD 6990. Judging from the above shot, we can see the GD 6990 uses dual 8-pin power and is capable of consuming 300W of power. On the shot below we can see that it will include four DisplayPort connectors and a single DVI connector. For extra monitor support, you'll require the soon to be released DisplayPort v1.2 splitter.
