XFX Preps Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition 4GB Eyefinity6 Graphics Accelerator

It looks like Sapphire and ASUS will not be the only AMD board partners out with a custom design Radeon HD 5970 graphics accelerator that has higher clock speeds and twice the amount of memory. XFX seems just about ready with what it calls the XFX Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition 4GB. This limited edition graphics card borrows heavily from AMD's reference design, but adds some changes:
  • The leaf-blower is centrally located, with a GPU system on its either sides.
  • GPUs use higher clock speeds of 850 MHz (core), 1200 MHz (memory).
  • Twice the amount of memory, 2 GB per GPU, 4 GB total.
  • ATI Eyefinity6 display output configuration: 6 mini-DisplayPort connectors to support six physical displays (dongles may be included for DVI users).
  • Power is drawn from two 8-pin PCI-E power connectors.
XFX may manufacture upto 1500 pieces in all, and could price each piece around US $1000, with sales starting later this month.

Now that looks like is almost Double the size of the 5970 Black Edition that I see on NewEgg.

I have been trying to get my Grubby little hands on the 5970 for some time now, what is the deal with getting the Card, Anyone know, cause every where I look I's never in stock. And now XFX is coming out with another Card that will be for the most part Impossible to get? Just as the first one they released.

NewEgg

Check out the reviews posted on 2/16/2010 & 2/12/2010 & 1/14/2010 & 1/13/2010

So Now I'm wondering if there is some problem in the production. Or the people that did buy the card just Fried their Cards.
