    I tought the max tpd was 375w (150w for each 8 pin connector plus the pci-e slot 75w).

    The two cards are in the same ballpark to me.

    I remember when that 5870 X2 was being sold at my local shop. I was like "WTF? isn't it 5970?" turned out to be a real model

    I dunno if its the same as the one listed on the OP, but I'm sure it was an HD 5870 X2

    Nope.
    Top-end graphics cards have been known to exceed PCI-E specs for a while now.
    Just because it is rated at 375W doesn't mean the card can't draw more.
    That 512SP Thermi just don't give a damn :laugh:

    damn straight, it has a power draw leak that's why it draws around 600w

    My Asus Matrix 5870 Platinum taught me the hard lesson that just cause something is expensive, doesn't mean its going to be better.

    I got the Matrix card thinking it will be the king of OCing but in reality even the cheaper retail XFX cards typically out do it on air. Plus the iTracker 2 software (The heart and soul of the cards functionality) really limits the card, its super buggy and support stats that you must use the drivers from their site for it to work correctly. The thing is those drivers are almost always outdated. So without iTracker 2 you can't change the volts that would lead to higher clocks. The card is still doing me great for any game I choose to play, but it turned out to be far less than I anticipated and served as a well deserved rude awakening.

    Dark2099 had that co-op card, I was so envious of him when he had that.
