off-topic: is he using a propane torch on the cooler the 2nd picture ? http://kotaku.com/5922741/worlds-most-overclocked-graphics-card-looks-like-a-sci+fi-movie-set/

I think a combination of all 3. Definitely benchmarks for sure.

My want for this card has tapered off to the point that I was thinking of waiting for a 880 (Ti) Classified.

After fulling watching the videos, it looks like several changes have been made over from the 780 lightning; its nice to see that they have a brace running from the bracket along side the top of the card to prevent the terrible sagging problem that the 780 lightning has. Id still be nice to get rid of the yellow fan and place another larger size fan in its place for noise. But most likely people that get this will chuck the stock cooler anyways and pop it under water.

So I suspect it will be released in the next 2 weeks. Maybe even this week.

If I were a gambling man, I'd say this week. Just saying.

Can't find any better details than on guru3d, but man... 12+3+2 phase and at least 450 watts available for overclocking. Ridiculous. And they say a price of $800... I'm gonna say $850-900.

Probably around $900 if it launches at newegg first. Nice power phases on the board, I can't wait to see how this goes vs.the kingpin when both are on ln2.
