    I mean I won't state all the obvious reasons, but it boggles my mind that people would buy into this for collectability. Reply

    Figures with how greedy the corporate pig AMD is and how little they care about endusers.
    They will probably rebadge this soon nough for another round of sales.

    This is Asus making the card, not AMD, and this card wouldn't make either of them "corporate pigs". Reply

    I'll take two. Pretty please. Though $1500 is harsh no matter which way it comes out. I'd like to see a single GPU CLC out of the box from ASUS, just to find where they would place it in the market and at how much. Reply

    Do want. This really opens up the possibilities of throwing a dual slot card into a mATX case. Great idea. An actual portable powerhouse. LAN party anybody? Reply

    Loving the TDP numbers!

    These cards are all monsters but nice to see another CLC solution for a GPU. I find these very interesting and hope we are the beginning of a trend for more of these on the market. I'm not interested in the high end products but the trickle down affect on mid range GPUs.

    LOL - Of course, since the 7900 series is a gigantic sucking electric power plant destroyer compared to the NVidia GTX600 series, why of course you'd love the power numbers....

    So, 1500 bucks is going to trickle down how ? A Lambourghini has more chance of affecting your Ford focus' price.

    Anyway, it was a nice bit of amd fanboyism. Congrats on that.

    As a total video card fanatic I purchased two Asus 5970's a couple years back. Just keeping these from crashing was a constant effort. Asus finally released a driver that upped the 2D clocks so it wouldn't crash to the desktop (and you shouldn't have to tweak the profile to do so). I'm pretty sure there was a cold-bug; once up to heat, they ran pretty fair. If you try to keep the drivers updated, this feature was not available from ATI - crash, crash, crash. The voltage tweaking utility just plain failed. I could not overclock these cards in the least! Not to mention the hit you took from each card being UNDERCLOCKED from standard 850 Mhz to a paltry 725 Mhz so it would adhere to PCI 2.0 power draw specs. Just buy two 7970s as I have now and you will just fine and have some extra cash. When they did work, it was like sending your grandmother out against the defensive line of an NFL team though - a slow grinding plow through anything. But not again. Reply

    a nice piece of design ...when something with 8B+ transistors inside is this well done by a large firm i'm a smiling GPU lover indeed. Reply
