    Yep, a nice heatsink indeed. Oh wait a sec... That's not Copper !:mad::banghead::shadedshu

    Still, put some LN2 on that thing, and I'm visualizing EVGA's OC record broken ! We'll just have to wait for the GF 110 variant. Hell, they should'v used it from the beginning.

    HA HAAA!!!! there need be no reason for unnecessary power!!! They also need be no apparent reason to buy this unless this added power catapults(overclocks) this card near the 580's zip-code.

    It most likely has nickle plated copper tubing with alum fins, plus it's a b/w pic so who knows.;) There cooler design is really similar to Asus's DCII, are 3 slot cards gonna be the new fad?

    How is this card pointless? The Asus Mars II was pointless; cost twice as much and was beaten by two 580's in SLI. Not to mention OC. Still, it pushed boundaries, like this card does, and that's good for everybody.

    I actually prefer Gainward cards for that reason. Exploring possibilities. Just wish it were easier to get waterblocks for non-reference cards.

    Not intended as trolling but thats a load of crap TPU has never been and will never be biased to one card or another and EVGA is far from premium they just charge a premium price.

    then sorry but you're full of crap. more AMD people come in here than nvidia guys. do i need to quote W1zz on "oh my iphone doesnt support cuda" or "gtx 480 sucks..." ? as for EVGA, premium as in premium OF nvidia. i said they used to be cause they used to have some the best nvidia offerings, and they still have the best connection with nvidia. i read those reviews a few years ago but forgot. if you realized, there's only 3 old reviews. go on Guru3d, they have lots of EVGA reviews. and i regard W1z's reviews as the BEST gpu reviews... yet, we're discussing this. come on.

    Even though, TPU is NOT biased. W1zzard might'v told a joke or two about Nvidia. But they are just jokes ! When it comes to real talk, he's using a high end Nvidia card. He's done many reviews of Nvidia Graphics cards. And each reviewing nearly every available brand of the card. Well maybe except EVGA.
    EVGA's offerings in the market rarely add much if anything to the table. The only premium thing about them is the price. I've rarely seen EVGA add anything innovative to the industry. Compared to other brands like ASUS, Colorful, MSI, Sparkle, etc, EVGA mostly sells stock cooled reference design cards. And when they do get creative, they slab a new sticker and that's it.
    I might be wrong in what I've typed above, but from where I stand, EVGA is far from premium.

    Looks like a pretty well designed card.

    Anyone else find the near black and white photos a little ironic given the the manufacturer is named Colorful? :D

    tpu reviews arent biased however forum is amd centric. those werent just jokes so its clear that you havent been here for long. i've been reading this forum for years. have seen enough amd bs. even by himself when he had 4870.

    i said EVGA USED to be premium. they had 285 classifieds with digital pwms. best damn 285s. see those reviews posted before? those ACS3 cards owned. EVGA lost their workers and they now suck. you seem to be new to this business. you're also wrong about EVGA position. they still are the biggest seller of nvidia cards in the u.s. they have the best cooperation with nvidia in Cali, their cards go in GF 6 lans. EVGA IS nvidia in one way or another.

    i think that's partly due to just how many brands we used to be able to choose from here in the U.S. as far as nvidia cards. I think it was pretty much just XFX, PNY, and EVGA back in the day in most stores., well and MSI in some stores but i think they mostly did ati/amd. Asus, colorful, sparkle, galaxy, not so much until recently... (tho asus had been here just as long but not in as many stores for w/e reason)

    and yea, those 285s were beast

    The forums only express the users opinions, not that of the reviewers.
    Since I joined these forums I've rarely came around an instance where someone favoured a side only because he/she is a fanboi/girl. Most of the users around here only care for how much bang for the buck does the card have. And most of these forums dwellers deal with facts, charts and numbers, solid benchmarks. Not just CAPS type "NVIDIA IS OVERPRICED" and "ATI IS SH**" !.
    Being the biggest doesn't mean the best. And it sure doesn't give it the right to be titled "Premium". I never denied them the fact that they have impressive sales charts. Good business ties rarely matter for these companies. XFX had a decent thing going between them and Nvidia, that didn't stop the later from kicking them out of the boat, did it ?

    it doesnt matter. when you got a site full of AMD guys, you wont get nvidia hardware from nvidia guys. which part of this forum gets attention the most? did you read all that nonsense on bd here? do you know about stuff like this that has happened here before?

    SAPPHIRE Toxic 100269TXSR Radeon HD 4890 1GB 256-b...

    find the comment on the right bar then look at it. what does it say? 4890 beats 285... yeah all along... it didnt even beat 275. said by the guy who recently started locking amd threads he doenst like.

    xfx's situation with nvidia has nothing to do with evga. EVGA has a better connection than any other company does in San Diego. its not even close. nvidia gives them hand on marketing bulletins, product management. and EVGA has to listen to them. xfx was just a strong nvidia partner. they couldnt sell like BFG so they had to jump ship.

    It's like sticking a twin turbo and supercharged, intercooled system on a Fiat 1.0 engine. It just makes no sense at all.

    This BD "nonsense" was backed by benchmark results showing that AMD couldn't give what it promised. It wasn't fan flame war. And this is irrelevant to the subject.
    I've read many threads on this site asking for recommendations for a build. I've read many AMD/ATI users recommend a GTX580 or a 460 back at the time. People around here know that there's nothing such as a better brand. There's only a hardware with better performance. No one denied the power of th 5970 back then. And no one here is denying the power of the new GTX 580 !
    You'll have to forgive me for not looking at your link, we aren't talking about newegg, we're talking about TPU.

    no it wasnt just that. most of the info has been put by AMD fans. Semiaccurate links and crap. you dont have to act silly to defend this forum. i've been reading here for years, you? this is one of the best forums out in the net. despite, it's been crowded with amd fanboys.

    i wont forgive you for talking like you're in a fantasy MMO land.... please go back and look at that link. what does it say just in the right corner? 4890 is 'better' than 285. you know? right on the right comment bar of Newegg? can you make it more deceiving? said by Erocker. its much worse than writing it here. so stop it.
