AMD HD 6970 Size Confirmation?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Ive seen the thread on here with the supposed HD6970 leaked pics, and it looks like the thing is really long, like 5970 long, in which case it wouldnt fit in my CM690 II.

Im looking to get either a GTX 580 or the HD6970 depending on price/performance for Christmas, but if the 6970 isnt going to fit, i might just go GTX 580

Any concrete info? Thanks.

I bet is the same size as the old 5870s.

there are rumors out there stating that the 6970 will not be the fastest/best gpu on the market.. it will be cheaper than the 580 but not faster.
