XFX to Ship Radeon HD 5970 in a P90 Gun Case
Edgy packaging, but don't let the cops see you toting that around the streets.
Nvidia may have the fastest single GPU solution out right now, but the fastest video card title belongs to AMD with its ATI Radeon HD 5970. If leaks about an upcoming XFX product are to be believed, the Radeon HD 5970 is about to get a bit of a boost in an upcoming premium dual GPU card.
What you see here is supposedly an upcoming Radeon HD 5970 with 4GB of RAM and six mini-DisplayPort connectors, making it ready for Eyefinity6 – for six displays driven simultaneously.
While this new card coming from XFX will be topping the benchmarks for sure, what sets this vendor's offering apart from the rest is the supposed packaging that resembles a FN P90 firearm. The packaging will be plastic and can serve as a carrying case should you decide to tote your graphics card outside of your computer, though we do not recommend you do any of that out in public (at least not without painting the casing in a bright orange color first).
According to Legit Reviews, XFX will be handpicking the GPUs for this series of cards to increase their attractiveness to overclockers. As for pricing, we're supposed to expect pricing at around $100 more than current Radeon HD 5970 cards.
Update: It's been brought to my attention from the people in the comments that the firearm looks more like an F2000 than a P90, and you're probably right. Admittedly, I'm not that familiar with guns. As a Canadian, my idea of a deadly weapon is a hockey stick and a blindside hit to the head.
