Card revisions worth considering?
Just something I've always been curious about. If we step back and take a sort of broad and general view of the situation, are card revisions something worth considering? I started looking at this when I had my GTX 570. I noticed that the card I had, was something like revision A1. A couple of years went by, and I had to RMA the card. What I got back, was version A2. Hmm, interesting. Iirc, the final version before they stopped producing the card, was A3. And I think the A3 cards, were all smaller. Its been awhile, so I can't really remember. Maybe they weren't but I seem to remember the A3 cards being about 25% shorter than the other versions.
Is there any real need to concern oneself with what card revision you get? Beyond some kind of bad issue with the card, where it needed some kind of hardware revision. If it doesn't have any real problems, is it worth considering your card revision number? Do the cards actually get any better, with later versions of it? Or is this something that nobody should care about? Unless of course you want a certain card but are trying to avoid a particular flaw with earlier models.
