    that is some serious epenis.

    Still curious about the power consumption. If it is Cayman based I wonder how much they had to clock down to get it to fit in 300 watts. Either that or it will come horrible crippled by powertune, and you can crank it up and it will pull >300 watts and run well.

    It looks heavy. I still love the square AMD reference shroud. Hate non-reference designs... they look less solid. It's not rear-exhaust is it?

    It feels like a tank too, I feel like I can throw it at the wall and the wall may break but the card will still be solid.

    A video card with a wooden cooling shroud would be epic awesomeness.

    Thats no moon... it's a space station!!!

    I'm must admit that I'm almost tempted by this. However, I would also not mind dualing up my 6970 as well...

    Dang it, I swore off dual cards years ago. Why oh why AMD do you tempt me?!!?!?

    If a robber runs into my house and tries to burglarize me, I will rip that card from my PC and use it as a weapon to scare him away! Looks like it can do some real damage to someone! D:

    The fan is under his fingers in the middle of the card. Similar to the 5970 Black Ed.

    when are they going to come up with a solution to keep it from bending the PCI-e 16x slot down and the card's PCB warping?

    Currently I've rigged my 8pin power conns to pull the card up via tension.

    Sooner or later they'll just have to make the GPU casing as big as a computer case so you can fit all your other components inside of it.

    If we take away the space constraints think they can make GPU that are infinitely more powerful and low cost?

    What if they make a motherboard/case that leaves a PCIE slot that can be slide in from outside the case? Then we can have GPU as big as we want and it'll be 'external' but still connected to the motherboard like a normal gpu.
