Still a very good deal considering it's still mostly MSRP on Newegg. If you're really that upset, I'm sure you can sell it for a reasonably close amount and then buy the 680. Would do it quick though since the prices on the 7970 should drop sometime soon now.

Got mine.

Paid $499 each. The cheapest 7970 is Canada is just shy of $600. Not to mention I have had too many bad experiences with Crossfire in the past.

The retail model is lacking circuitry seen in the first picture. Look at the bottom right hand side of the card. (-1 Phase and a few VRMs, it looks like)

The retail version is missing a power phase. The pre-production version has 5, retail has only 4.

Ooooh. Can you do some tests for us?

Say run a few benches with single card then pop in the second and run the same tests with the same settings so that we can get an idea of the scaling with Kepler?

Also I'm interested in how they overclock.

To anyone that ordered off the EVGA website, expect a phone call. I just received one to verify my information and it will be shipping out today.
