7990 on bull is definitely going to be great. I think replacing 570 isn't a
good idea.  Nvidia openCL on 570 is less buggy than AMD's. So we can use it
for testing purposes. However we can move it to a 4x PCIe rather than a 16x
or 8x.
For an APU I would like to wait until HSA is implemented on AMD APUs.
Otherwise there is no point in using APU.
Have we considered Titan ?  It is better than 580 SLI/680 SLI/690 in
integer math. GTX 780 should be on par with 580 SLI in terms of integer
math.

Can we use the two GPUs on a 7990 separately ? If not we shouldn't be
replacing 7970 on bull either.
