It hasn't shipped yet, so what would be a board that does the same stuff with 2GB mem that has a full cover wb?

How do you find out if its a ref board?

Also check out the 6950's from powercolour, the dont have blower fans but do share the ref. pcb. Newer ones are probably v2 too, but they were the card i was going to use in crossfire because of water blocks. Can always check EK's config thing too.

Return the card and get yourself a reference one.

Cards of same type mostly perform in same range.

You pretty much have to go used to get a ref 6950.

Be aware that toxic card is a v2 pcb.

Use this to see if your card has a block. (from ek but its a good idea if it does or not)
