AMD Radeon HD 7990 Engineering Sample ends up on Ebay

Someone has seemingly gotten their hands on the elusive AMD Radeon HD 7990 dual-GPU video card that AMD is readying for launch. Codenamed "Malta," this GPU features two of AMD's 7970 GPU cores on a single board paired with 6GB of vRAM. The card was first unveiled at the Game Developers Conference alongside Battlefield 4.

We're pretty sure that the auction will end up getting pulled from Ebay, but that shouldn't stop you from bidding on the item. We know that the 7990 does exist, so this card shouldn't be a fake. The card takes two 8-pin PCIe power connectors for a total of 375W TDP.

There are still four days left on the auction, but we doubt it will still be up by the end of the day. If it does end up selling, we'll be sure to report on the final selling price. It's currently at $510, at the time of writing, with 17 bids having been placed. Shipping will set you back an additional $50, but it is one-day shipping.

The auction is available on Ebay.
