This is interesting. Marketing to developers of VR is a great way to justify the price. However, the performance to the price isn't necessarily there, though neither was it for the R9 295X2 at 1500 dollars.

Two Fiji cards slapped together...bottom line overpriced and useless. You can buy two Fury cards and put them in crossfire, it will be cheaper.

Dual Fiji is one board, less latency, one radiator, less power. Not just "Two Fiji cards slapped together"
It's a lot easier to install one of these instead of two Fiji X. Lets not even touch Quadfire.

They should have released this sooner with Polaris and Pascal coming later this year. It doesnt even have a released date, what are they waiting for??

That depends on your perspective. An R9 295X2 will outpace an overclocked GTX 980 Ti in games that support CrossFire. Having that kind of power two years ago, and still not having anything on the market yet that you can replace it with, says alot.

VR isn't possible without the headset. The whole point is you are cut off from the real world while in VR.

This is prosumer card while other fiji cards are consumer cards. Of course it'll be costly than 2 of them.

You lot don't get it. This is marketed as a workstation graphics card, not as a 'regular Joe' consumer product. This thing isn't going to compete with upcoming Pascal and Polaris.

does it use the firepro driver, or does it use the gaming driver?
that will tell you if its pro or not.

Am I only one noticed there's no 'complete case shots' and why are the power and usb and audio ports on the side? Isn't that the dumbest place to put those?

The post wasn't about the maingear PC, it was about the GPU inside. Why would I include a full case shot?

Side USB ports can be helpful. Depends where you have your case. For example, my front mounted ports are hard to get to. I could use some side mounted ports like that. My case it behind my three monitors.

Finally, someone who gets it. "Inserts thank you GIF"

The image of the card shows two black tubes coming out of it near the I/O bracket.

I've since seen an image that confirms, these are tubes that go to a 120mm radiator.
