VERY interesting configurations for the HD 5770 for certain. I'm really curious about the single-slot to see if it truly is a full-power version or just an underclocked one like NVIDIA did with the Green series. The vortex cooling thing also sounds interesting and I'm curious to see how exactly they managed to pull off such a solution without sacrificing something else.
Nice to see some companies stepping up to the plate and bringing something truly different to the table rather than just the same old thing.

Actually, a single-slot card would be a good option for those running a SFF box like a Shuttle where there is'nt enough room to fit a double-wide card but still has intake vents on the side for proper cooling. Really not sure where the rest of your thoughts are coming from 'tho since single-slot SLI and Crossfire configurations have been around for awhile all the Lucid chip does is allow someone to run a mixed configuration. Unless I'm missing something in your post?

That would be SO yummy!
I dearly miss the AIW series and always felt that when they started to go away from the full-power card concept on the x1800 to the low-end crap chips that it lost that magic. Consider too that they could even add Eyefinity to it and allow 3 HDTV's running at either 1280x768 or 1920x1080 for your own ultimate HD system having a movie playing at an uber resolution.
