This - as well as much smaller market than usual 7950's leads to a higher price.

what's also funny is that the Mac Pros these are designed to be installed in have zero white parts. Apple had no say in design nor pricing of this product.

The boost/ghz stuff? You can keep that crap.

This mac card looks by the specs to be the original 7950 pcb. What a time warp. I dunno, I kinda like the white shroud.

If Apple developed the 7950, then this would make sense. However, they buy it from AMD for cheap, then sell it to ******* for maximum $$$

No, but they ARE the ones who create and maintain the market that allows for such an outrageously overpriced item in the first place.
