[citation][nom]captainblacko[/nom]Lets be honest here. it would look better with a bit of pink detailing on it.[/citation]

Pink is for girls and little kids. No offence.. Also I don't think you can even classify it as a color - its faded red.

The official dual-GPU's have historically been down-clocked versions of the flag ship chip from both camps. The fact that 7970x2 is already overclocked 7970GHz edition with more room to OC ought to make enthusiasts wet.

[citation][nom]ekho[/nom]Please include some sort of Video Editing benches as well[/citation]

For what software? Usually video editing is for Cuda cards (Adobe and Sony suites). Others might be different but usually they wouldn't even "see" the second GPU, so.. Not much to say there.

If the benchmarks are on par with the PowerColor Devil 13 this will sell more, in my opinion, just by being a 2 slot card (like the 690) and not 3 slots (Devil 13).

It's a 3 slot. It's referenced in the article, and you can see it in the picture too.

I want to start seeing 3d stuff in the benchmarks. I want to make the jump after x-mas. I know you guys did a good segment just about 3d a while ago, but even just benchmarking a couple titles using both AMD/nvidia solutions would be a nice addition to the charts.

You are absolutely correct, I don't know how I missed that. Thank you.

[citation][nom]Cryio[/nom]"Is This the World's Fastest Graphics Card?"Given the last few video drivers, and 7970's MAD OC potential, well, yes it is.[/citation]
[citation][nom]Cryio[/nom]In my books, Nvidia lost this gen.[/citation]
... how so?

Ohh how different the reactions would be, and have been historically, if Nvidia were in a similar position.

that heat sinks shroud is just ridiculous for ventilation, the thing will burn up or down clock itself once it starts getting hot. internal exhaust are they kidding?
this thing needs liquid cooling if they can't come up with a better cooling solution.
it's going to require a case with lateral ventilation parallel to the sink just to exhaust enough heat out to keep it going at full throttle.

multimonitor review if the screens are not over 1080p above 27"
i think there were enough multi monitors at At AMD's 2012 ExtravaLANza Event and screens over the size of 27" as proof that it's fact benchmark tests have to start realizing.
27" monitors are getting to the $200 price mark.
i'm at dual 27" and debating on a third before x-mas

forgot to mention i have been at dual 27" monitors since 2010 when they got to the $300 price point and if i'm willing to drop $600 and soon to be $800 into tri monitor and the price of 32" dropping below $1,000 now its as big of a consideration back when every one was on 15" for $400 and i dropped $650 into a 17"with 1280x1024 well over a decade ago, almost 2 decades. 1080p is not a front runner any longer and should be phased off review by now.

"...and let us know what you want to see in the comments!"

Hmmm, I'd love to see this card as a prize in the next giveaway drawing ;-)
