Pimpin!
If only I had the 20 billion dollars that thing must cost...
I'll stick with my $80 HD4870.

It all sounds great except that it only provides PCIe 2.1 support instead of PCIe 3.0. So, I'll just wait until AMD/Radeon comes out with their 7000 series GPU's.

whats with the blatant ads being posted as news items? there's this, the cases that take large GPUs and the thermaltake ad with the "amazing" feature that has the PSU on the bottom.

whats with people with big mouths that can't just look at a new product for what it is? You think we all dont know that there are already bottom mount PSU cases? no sh*t sherlock. Its a new item for the manufacturer, its not like they released an Apple patent for it, get over it.

Benchmarks to prove that it matters? If you have a full 16 lanes feeding a 16X 2.1 slot, I think you'll be fine. You would need a 79xx in your hands before you start worrying about 16 lane interface bandwidth too much.

Great. That makes the placement of this article even worse. They're implicitly stating that this is not "Sponsored," and then writing "Learn more about the PowerColor Devil 13 HD6970 at PowerColor's product page."

Articleultra large 92mm cooling fans


92 isn't ultra large for a GPU, ASUS uses 120 on the 580 Matrix.

News is good but, we need numbers, price and a value comparison to see if it's worth paying the extra premium

I had one of these. It has been a solid card for three years. Gave it to my younger sister to buy a new 6950 but it's still working like a champ
