They say its for gaming... but that oversized heat sink and reduced power-input makes me think this was designed for a computer where size and overclocking aren't really an issue.
So to me this still comes across as more of a mining-first card, but they are hedging their bets for when that market collapses.

In my S340 Elite or my Enthoo Pro it wouldn't be a problem. But cases where it's a tight fit I could definitely see it being a problem. This card is definitely made for cases that don't have drive bays.

The question remains though - where can you get one? :lol:

I got my reference Vega 56 to run at 100 MHz higher clockspeeds than the max boost for this OEM card... those specs aren't very impressive imo.
