Yesh?

No?

Perhaps?

Lol I love it when these companies senselessly promote their products with "direct copper", which apparently seems like the hottest cooling technique nowadays.

Anyways, I'm eager to see some reviews on this bad boy.

Also... I JUST bought a 6870 online. :/

Oh and 2gddr of video ram ftw?

Do some games or apps still have trouble with crossfire or SLI?

In terms of the way programs interface with the card, does it funtion as a single card or two cards in Crossfire?

It funtions as a single card....with almost twice the power. The better deal of this is running 2 (or more) of these cards in crossfire. 

Same thing with the 5970, i've seen 4 of them running in crossfire and man those things mine Bitcoi...err I mean play Crysis like nobodies business

That's pretty cool, but at 450 it's price too high. I can get two 6870s for that and have some change left over. I guess if you need a single slot solution, this will work out quite well.

 

Hoping to see some benches stacking it up against traditional crossfire solutions.

50 times better?
How about some actual testing numbers to back that up PowerColor?

I think that was a typo and they meant to say "50% better"

Whats the power consumption of this card?

avatar

DDRDiesel

That depends.  What's left of Japan?  Might only be able to power up 2 or 3 of these with what's left

The more power it consumes the better. ;)

Then you need to start overclocking. That thing can hit 300W once you get close to that ghz mark.
