    Copypasta. But I still prefer the PowerColor one. Nothing personal, Club 3D. Just nicer sticker.

    To me, Club 3D = Powercolor. But the latter has been known for longer than Club 3D.

    EDIT: To make my self clear, obviously Powercolor and Club 3D aren't the same thing. Powercolor is based in Taiwan (w/offices in USA) and Club 3D in the Netherlands, but what I'm saying is that both get their cards from TUL Corp.

    Seems like the lower heat pipe was beaten up to fit.
    Even if it does the job, it's still looks awkward...

    So like the last x2 does this have OMGSOLOUDMYEARSAREBLEEDING fans, and power consumption that makes Nvidia cards seem power efficient (4870 x2)?

    Then wth is this? I mean these are two 100% identical custom cards. Either the companies are related, one sold the design to the other, or one just went to bizarre lengths to make an exact copy, which really is bizarre given how shitty looking that cooler is. Something about his just seems real moronic. Perhaps they're the same company and just sell in different regions? I can't find any club 3d products in the USA.

    You are right. Same reason cars are called different names in north american and european markets, there is no such thing as a ford focus in england, just as there is no ford mondeo in usa. marketing, think of club 3d as a franchise of powercolor, and they are a participating retailer of the 6870x2 design.

    I want to see the review for this card because it looks promising. Of course people will have to take into account that they'll be paying around USD100 more in order to have two Bart GPUs on a single PCB.

    very interesting...

    TUL corp. and club 3D are founded at the same years, since 1997. the difference between them are the market. TUL corp has distributor all around the globe when club3d only drop it on europe, middle east, south africa and even south east asia like indonesia. this is why you cant found any Club3d cards on US market.

    also these two companies never mention each other on their profile partner nor on any article news on the web. and not like powercolor who's been exclusively for radeon's card, Club3d also sell geforce cards. so like i said, its interesting to know if TUL corp was *really* selling their OEM cards to Club3d..

    Powercolor's parent company and OEM major TUL supplies Radeon graphics cards to Club3D.

    There is. A better example would be there's no Taunus in Britain.

    Like I said, and later btarunr, both manufacturers get their cards from TUL corp.
    Not only them, but Visiontek too and another company that I can't remember.
    There is no Vauxhall outside England, just Opel in Europe and Holden in Australia.
    Club 3D is not afiliated with Powercolor.
    They're different companies (Club 3D and PC) that get their cards from TUL Corp. Powercolor cards are built by Foxconn. Powercolor also has nVidia cards, under the Zogis brand name. Zogis only sells in Mexico, Brazil and Venezuela.
