    It's cool to me, very aggressive looking and thermal dissipators, but i prefer without that paint idea...

    box is important to take attention and make it looks exclusive, so bigger is better

    does anyone know where to buy i-game Colorful cards here in the US.... I want two of these.... Yes I know that they are usually an Asian company but like everything there has got to be away to import them from somewhere.
    If someone knows please post it.... I would like to look into it even if it is has a little loss in money.

    All we wished for?

    Arr, is it possible that this is born out of the wishes of hundreds of people like us posting here ;)
    Haven't read yet the off. press release but i remember some design contest.
    So basically that card should be what all of us have ever dreamed of :D

    I guess they might make 580 version as well. But it will be 4 slots and have 120mm fan on each Air-Kit module ^_^. Though it looks nice, but price and chip are incompatible. I think this cooler could serve 580 or even 590, but 560... :shadedshu. Still it looks like :nutkick: to ROG cards :D

    why oh why do ever more companies slap even more extreme cooling on mid range cards!??!?!

    this thing works well with just a single middle fan or two small fans.

    for the price, any sensible buyer thinking of getting this should just pony up for a GTX570 or HD6970!

    Some slides from the Press-presentation:

    [​IMG]

    ^even the Chinese are making fun of #Occupyfailstreet :laugh:

    [​IMG]

    ^they ran a public brainstorming session among Chinese forums

    [​IMG]

    ^hand sketch of the product design that came out of the brainstorming session

    [​IMG]

    ^it does really look like something in orbit

    [​IMG]
    ^I have a hunch that at those speeds, it should beat GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores, both reference and any level 1 OC. NV will prevent partners from selling level 2 or above factory OC bins, because it will hurt GTX 570.

    [​IMG]
    ^ Modularity comes in the form of kits, each of which are optional for the running of the card, though everything is included in the package

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    ^ This is interesting. 1/3 of the voltage regulation is shed to this card, if connected. It has four additional phases using flatcoil choke and DrMOS. It also has a 128 KB EEPROM that stores an epic clock speed BIOS that overrides one of the two BIOS ROMs on the main card. This mechanism makes sure that you have access to the epic clock speeds only when this card is installed (to guarantee electrical stability).

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    ^ you don't have to plug in all four of them, just in any combination you like.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    ^OK, I'll leave this for you to comment.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    ^ component quality brag and free DrMOS marketing

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    ^ cooler brag. If you look closely at the base, it's not exactly a plate in some parts, but a tightly packed layer of copper wires that are plated and polished on top. Then there's a solid plate right over the GPU, that's milled to perfection.

    [​IMG]
    ^backplate brag. Actually the backplate is more of a heatsink, with a silver-silica substrate that quickly conveys heat from the reverse part of the PCB. You can attach those heat-fin stack thingies to the backplate.

    [​IMG]
    ^ More cooler brag. Because, moar.

    [​IMG]
    ^ To summarise the overkill.

    In my opinion, this isn't really overkill. With recent wage hikes and inflation not creeping up, the average Chinese today has more disposable-income than ever. So companies like Colorful aren't even bothering with US market. They'll end up selling most of their cards at home, some in Europe.

    Sweet. Some off-topic quote- "Everyone knows, the red ones going faster!"© This card is going to be a real trolling device :D

    Asus gonna be jealous, 'cause it can be painted in ROG colors.

    if these cards do well for them though, imagine what they could do with future top of the range cards??

    I must admit it is a bit puzzling as to why they just dont pull the trigger and now and do it with a 580, but they didn't just make this card for a laugh, there must be a reason.

    I know they have only done this with mid range cards so far, but im sure there will come a time when that will change, then what will Asus' answer be to that?? These things look even more nuts than the mars cards

    Seriously.. Ive seen better painting skillz from kinder students.. and that paint looks like is having a hard time bonding itself with the plastic

    Why such an overkill for just a 560 though..

    Isn't this a bit over the top for a 560ti, and seriously paints with it? wtf, mebbe fine if you buy one for your autistic son.

    Sorry if i can't use this word but this card is retarded, at the price its retarded to buy it.

    it's clever though, it's good advertising if nothing else for their other cards....it's not a card you're gonna forget fast.
