Yes, the block is shipped, all 4+ Lbs of it...

And I did give them pain for it! Of Course, all they can say is "Sorry, you can cancel the order if you want!"

Poop on them!!!



And of course, it takes them a week to figure out they can't ship it on time!!!

Sheesh!

Friend of mine got the MSI version at launch.

He still hasn't stopped bragging about it.

Especially how it has 4 GB of ram usable which he's still convinced to this day and the whole best card in the world.

Nice card but not worth the cash IMO and definitively not the above.

Bit like the whole GTX 590 thing.

Water cooler will be nice though, considering 2 gpu's are downlocked and squashed onto one pcb.

Would love to see some benches though and more importantly real life scenarios.

Sapphire version selling here for 815.00 AU so I guess the price is right.

779.00 for XFX

Welp, it's cheaper and uses less realestate than two 6970's... and it runs fast enough, not like the downclocked GTX590...

Dangit, not a real problem as I was going to use it in the new Sabertooth board I got later... waiting for the first Bulldozer chips to hit. I want an 8 or 12 core to go with the package. Stupid A8-3850 2.9GHz benches near the i7-950!!! It's a screamer! Can't wait to get something even better...

But, I'm not installing anything until after I move... just hold on to the parts until the bulldozer release, then try it out.



PS: A thought comes to mind... anybody ever try to run an ATI and Nvidia card together in the same system? Maybe an Nvidia for PhysX??? LOL!

Yeah, ATI main and a Physx card used to be pretty popular, it was a *hack*. I dont know if it can still be done in that same way.

Better ship it to "us" free then or maybe someone will lie to you about
paying for it! Yes, several folks in my group ordered them and you lied to
all of us. I sent an email about it before because I got an Aug 11 ship date
and another friend got an Aug 17 ship date! Even after that you still showed
the product as available and "Usually ships in 1 or 2 days" on the
website!!!!

We call that a "LIE".

Hope you are proud of yourselves... I'm 99% satisfied with your store in
general, but this was a monster "LIE" you perpetrated on us all.
