i see two things i like
dirt 2 coupon and no dumb sticker on the card
^^^what he said
I like how it shoots hot air out the back, and the plain sleek looks are a plus.
So it takes two six pins, awesome.
If you're talking red ports, I think they're cosmetic. It's hard to tell in the pic, but either nothing is happening there, or they're intake vents: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_5000_Leaks/images/cooler1.jpg
I like that Asus box though.. I got a 4890 TOP in that same box style and it was very, very well presented. Separate compartments for everything, kinda like they do with ROG mobos. Glad to see them out the gate with that same packing..
i like that card becasue it's simple. no stupid picture on it.
do you guys think these cards will be available at midnight tonight!?!? 'cause I'm itching to spend some money
"And I jizzed in my pants"
Looks very awesome! Can't wait to order one!
And I agree, it does look better without a sticker on it.
Im asking the same thing? If so, I am going to be scowering newegg at 11:59
i think i am going to wait closer to nvidia's launch and then see if i want to go with the 5890.
I meant the back of the case.
I already assumed the 2 red ports were for intake.
It is too bad someone did not have time to post a review only containing the letters, "O", "M", and "G" types in that order to the 3000 letter limit.
Where The Hell Is My 5850??? i can't afford the5870....even the 5850 is a bit outta my range, but hot damn i want one!!!!!!
is the 5870 gonna support hd audio?
do you mean like the older cards with a audio codec on the core for display port and hdmi.
Id say yes
Best looking 5870/5850 yet, good job ASUS.
Yeah it is really a good looking card, the simple red line is nice.
There's another one, with sticker...
Well it was there, they made it go byebye...
Yeah, they really did a good job on the cooler. I just wish it didn't have those useless red holes on the back of the card...
It's up and $379.99!!!!! Placing order now!
I wish I could though...
I don't like the sticker on it. And total after shipping comes to $388.49. I think that would be the best deal right now...
GOGOGO, QUICK BUY IT BEFORE W1Z buys 3 for review samples and does TRI CROSSFIRE!
he's already got review samples
Limit 1 per customer...
Kinda feel the same way. what gets me if air is coming from the front of the case to that area are you not going get some kind of turbulence as air would be pushed out of those holes too.
Although it sounds like a good idea to get rid of heat ASAP from the voltage regs. So i guess you would need a good balance of air from the front so it don't stop the cooler kicking the air out of that area.
Shame they did not arrange the connections on the plate better so they could of had a bigger output too.
