Powercolor site is down/unresponsive, probably from hits caused by the raffle for their new DEVIL card.

Yeah, that happens when a new card launches at a decent price. AMD themselves gave numbers on how tiny the $400+ crowd is.

Where did the pic come from?

There's actually something that doesn't look quite right about it.

Nah not yet, apparently half way through the month by best estimates.

Ok thanks, well I'm almost sold, don't like MSI or Asus high pricing so probably this or Gigabyte (3 year warranty is always nice)

I've never quite figured out who, besides ppl that put blocks or aftermarket coolers on, get reference cards. If heat inside the case is so much of an issue, get some fans. If the case is so bad it can't handle fans, get a new case. Ofc ppl that get prebuilts may but those types usually aren't in the market for cards where gpu heat may be an issue.

That said as with any card...wait for aib models as they are almost always the better option.

Is a single 8 pin enough?

I also see DVI for all the people who were scared of being abandoned smile.gif

One 8 pin can deliver 150w by itself. That means that an 8 pin card has a 50% advantage before it is "out of spec".

If the BIOS power limit is adjusted to go with the power increase, it should be like the reference card with powertune/WM at +50% power setting.
