Holy. Crap.

Let's just hope it's performance is good enough to compensate for it's size! And i bet aftermarket companies will be able to fit at least 4 80mm fans on it. That will be an IMPRESSIVE sight :D

Its Huge Buffalo HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE (anyone from western NY will hate me for this)

an a more serious note, i don't care if the card is huge, i have a decent case (as will most people here who buy this card) and will get to show it off "hey, look at the GPU brick in my case"

Why does it need to be so big. From the reference board it looks like they could consolidate the Power Circuit a lot better while isolating it from the high power heat dissipating devices.

hope the pcb board is reinforced... and i'd probably use somethign to brace it underneath as thats alot of weight on the pci-e slot

It'll need a special case with front and back bracket mounting too big.

I think they may need to move to triple slot rather than keep making these things longer. How long is that? I dont think it will fit in anything but an open air case


@mindless yeah i hate you for that too

We've finally reached the point where video cards are actually computers that (barely) fit inside another computer.

Well now it's AMD's turn to have a GTX 480 experience lol. It'll perform moderately well, be hot as balls, and sound like a jet engine under full load.

That' won't even fit in my case. Of course, it will be a while before I need to upgrade from two 5870s, but the point is not alot of people can fit that monster in their case. It looks bigger than the 5970!!

Yikes. The fan on the 5970 already sounds like a rocket if you set it to anywhere over about 70%, that thing must be even worse.

When you power your PC with that thing in it there`s a small chance a black hole will appear in your case.
