That thing is long! and power hungry!
thats the 12' oem version
the retail will be just 9'5 ( shorter than the 8800 GTX )
no, I actually had posted it earlier, you're welcome to join our discussion if you wanthttp://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/Finally-r600-informon-ftopict223211.html
But that's insane on the power connectors
and actually MR.Taco, you need to watch out your ego, since you were NOT THE FIRST ONE to have posted the pics like you claim...
this was posted in the morning:http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/OMG-Real-pics-X2800-ftopict223142.html
while YOURS was postedin the afternoon, more than 9 hours later..
in short words, you seem to be triying to "milk" people to your posts, insteat of sending people to the CORRECT and ACTIVE post
In other hand...
Remember they at first said the 8800GTX was gonna draw 200-220 Watts
and it ended using around 120-150watts ( 18-20 amperes ) and ended
just using 60-70% of that claim.
the X2800 as been mentioned to draw 240 Watts ( around 20 amps, ) maybe it will be lower.. considering the OEM fan is claimed to use (20 watts? )
