According to the rumor mill, AMD is preparing to release a dual-GPU Fury card in December. The product name is speculated to be Radeon R9 Fury X2 but this is not official yet and earlier rumors pointed to more unique names like Radeon Fury Maxx. VideoCardz reports the card probably features two Radeon R9 Nano GPUs, with lower clockspeeds, to fit into a 300W thermal envelope. The site claims there will be a special press event in December to introduce the dual-GPU card to the world.
NVIDIA is not planning GTX 990, but I’m pretty sure they have prototype boards ready to be mass produced as TITAN Z successor.

Going back to Fury X2, first teasers were already posted. Of course it couldn’t come from anyone else than in Johan Andersson himself, technical director from DICE, who we know from previous teasers with 295X2 and R9 290X. The teaser clearly indicates we are looking at yet another liquid-cooled Radeon graphics card. Unfortunately though, Johan’s sample was leaking, clearly indicating that someone has to leak more information.
