They're just being cheap, using an existing Classified PCB instead of making a real revision, kinda low of them IMO.

Now I see Mask was partially right about them swapping to cheaper SMD components from reference.

970's have absolutely insane value.

Ordered 2 MSI Twin Frozr 970's!

You know you what those reference cards in SLI. Just do it bro, join the club.

Of course that could be wrong and the engineering teams will be getting some very serious "do-or-die" emails in their inbox tomorrow.

One would think that AMD's remaining engineers would have already gotten used to such emails and/or threats of further downsizing, especially considering what has gone on over there for the last several years...

Leafblower was just the mid-range. The high-end will be a jet engine. lachen.gif

Hmm i was in a rush to order and i grabbed 2 windforce 970s from the egg. Considering i wont be using the cooling solution of either card the MSI does appear to have the same power delivery (VRMs and etc) as the gigabyte.

Guys think i should cancel my gigabyte order and grab the MSIs instead?

EVGA and EK have had a bit of a colab going on lately, so expect blocks for anything EVGA related.

Same controller that was on the GTX 680's from EVGA. 5-phase should be plenty for the voltage these little cards will suck up. No doubt it's greenlighted to 1.2Xv anyways tongue.gif
