HIS is working on a new custom-design Radeon HD 7970 graphics card, based on its newest cooling innovation, the HIS HD 7970 IceQ X². This is the first cooling solution in the IceQ family to feature two fans. It is designed to be competitive with several other AIB-designed twin-fan cooling solutions out there, MSI TwinFrozr III, PowerColor PCS+, and Sapphire Dual-Fan, to name a few. The cooler is designed to keep the card within the dimensions of two expansion slots, while increasing the height just a little.

The design consists of an aluminum fin array, to which heat is fed by three 6 mm and two 8 mm nickel-plated copper heat pipes, some of which make direct contact with the GPU die. The fin array is then ventilated by two large 112 mm fans that feature high-airflow blades. The design results in 17 °C cooler, and 15 dB quieter operation than AMD reference cooler. The card makes use of a 6-phase PWM power design. Other details are awaited.

The card retains the reference design's dual slot format.

if you look close you can see pcb in the upper left corner of the shot of the cooler, so it could well still be a single slot for the cooler.

Look a bit lower, and you can see that it's two slots as they're is two PCI-E backplate portions on the card. ;)

Although have re-read what you said, yes the cooler it's self takes up a single slot, but everyone else is talking about the package as a whole. ( hence confusion)
