Actually some benchmarks are out and it's not more powerful than a 7990, and chances are it's not going to be as cost-effective either.

Actually I take that back. If the 7990 keeps retailing for what it's going for at the moment, and if the 290 comes out at around 450 it will be more cost-efficient.
