    Has anyone noticed this crazy PCB? 15 phases and dual 8 pin pci-e power connectors :laugh:

    "The graphics card features 12 phase power supply for core,two phase power supply for memory and a phase auxiliary I/O power supply,totaling the amount of 15 phase."

    What do you think? over the top and crazy or the perfect 6970?

    I think one thing to remember about the number of phases relative to a CPU is most top end CPU's are 125w or 140w in the case of some phenoms where as some GPU's are around 300w so crazy amounts of phases may be of more use on a GPU than a CPU.

    I'm very interested to see the cooler that is used on this as the cut outs on the PCB suggest to me that it will use a blower style cooler.

    The perfect 6970 to put under a dry ice/LN2 pot? :D

    Yeah, it would be pretty useless with a standard HSF on it. Good ole LN2. :rockout:

    Beautiful PCB. but I haven't heard of Yeston before. Are they new to the industry?

    As far as i know they mainly sell in the Asian market, i have seen a few cards by them available in Europe but i don't think they normally sell in America.

    I have no idea how long they have been around as the ATI 4870 from them is the oldest card i remember seeing for sale from them in the UK but i would guess they have been around for years before the 4870 but that's just a guess as i know little of the Asian market and card makers there.

    With cards like this i wish they would follow in Colorful's lead and move out into the international market, a quick google leads me to believe yeston is mainly available in china :( i guess we will have to wait for another company to make something crazy like this :laugh:

    Number of phases ≠ better/more power.
    I'd rather take a ref AMD PCB with top-of-the-line Volterra VT1195SFs in place of the lower spec'ed VT1165SFs that AMD chose for HD6900s. The ref PCB has all the contacts needed for VT1195SFs, yet there's lower-end parts installed.
