While running passively, this model maintains the original specifications ...
Would it really be too much to ask, to have them to put the original specifications in their press realease, so we could see what temperatures this thing is maintaining?

2.) It's GDDR4 (reads so on the box and on the products page)
That's interesting. My story is copied directly from the PowerColor site, so I don't know why they didn't mention that there's a GDDR4 version as well in the PR. Thanks for finding that out.
