I don't know if the PCB is custom. It may just be a reference PCB with a few custom components.

At least we have EVGA. They got four 1000 and a 1300 supernova purchase out of me in the last two months just because of how cool they have been to many in the forums.

I'm wondering how far behind the next generation is out for both cards since all we are seeing is rehashes and notices for more rehashes. While this Tri-X Vapor edition looks nice, it isn't all that appealing as I can't do anything more with it than I can a regular Tri-X. 4 phase power for the GPU just seems like a recipe for disaster at high overvolts.

So is it worth £80 more than the Tri-X?

Good to see no one is giving me what I want: 4x mini DP. I may have to keep this 7970 until I die.

I want to say the R9 295X Space Heater edition comes with 5, but I could be wrong.

So this is basically one of the most expensive 290s out there. Is this any better than a similarly priced windforce 290X or 780?
