    Yes, reminds me of the Arctic Accelero, only in a two slot package, much more convenient :)

    This is what AMD said about having 3 fans

    Well, good thing is that one of these will no doubt utterly destroy your 2x 4870x2s.

    Any case that can fit this will probably come stock with good air flow. Anyone buying this card probably already has an elaborate set up with watercooling or massive fans.

    Better power usage (and thus, silicon)... probably faster overall (than even ASUS Ares II) and most probably full-on driver support... rather than makeshift R7970 CF ones... or however stock drivers treat AIB models... oh and also hopefully a price lower than 1000$... I'm hoping for 700... 900 tops... that would seriously cripple nVidia's TITAN/GTX690 market...


    Edit: Also, I really hope the stock cooler is decent, temperature and noise -wise... because it might not look as stylish as nVidia's ones... but it sure as hell looks beastly and just screams "bitch, I own this game"...

    HIS also has the Radeon HD 7970 X2 in the same category...


    IMHO, looks like the best card for 2560x1440@120Hz setups, wish AMD would also release a monitor overclocking tool as well... or a compact Eyfinity setup.
