XFX 5870

I'm a bit confused about this. I stumbled upon two different models of the 5870 manufactured by XFX. They're both the same price and have the same specs. If they're both the same, why would XFX bother manufacturing a second version of the 5870? I'm aware that they have redesigned earlier models of their 5870 cards where they repositioned their fans to the center of the card instead of putting them on the right end side. I'm wondering if there's a difference between these two cards. (Disregard anything related to purchasing either one of the cards, I just want to know if there's actually a difference between this two cards)

XFX Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) HD-587X-ZNFV (Would this one be a newer model since it has a V at the end instead of a C?

  1. well there should be a newer model of the 2 . Maybee better fan design cost effectiveness etc.
  2. I think they are the same card. The only difference I can see is that you get AVP in one of the bundles. (Looking at the pics)

    Sorry I cant be more helpfull.
  3. The only difference between them is with the purchase of the Cypress XT version you get an alien vs predator game free... :D
  4. That wasn't what I was looking for, but good try I guess.
  5. There is no other difference man.Same cooler and same performance.They both remain 40C at idle at 50%RPM.They changed the name because to introduce the new free game offer.
    Buy any one you wan't.
  6. I said disregard anything about purchasing. And from what source did you get that from? to introduce the new game offer or was that just your assumption?
  7. Man I got the informations from the source you provided only.Check the user reviews of both the cards, they are same.And that was my assumption.
