    Isn't it just a standard 4870 X2 with an aftermarket cooler that has been clocked up a little? Why not get a watercooled one if you want the "fastest"

    Re: News - Gainward announces world's fastest graphics card, says it "goes like hell"

    Lovely bit of meaningless marketing spin there. The press release seems to imply that the 'fastest card in the world' claim relates to the 4870X2 in general rather than this card in particular - but didn't everybody already know that?? And why give it a DisplayPort output? I thought that was supposed to be a multimedia interface - and I don't know of too many HTPCs that could fit a triple-height card that's over 10" long...

    Underneath all the marketing craziness though, it's probably a very good card!

    you don't see the point here adding aftermarket coolers and such voids warranty and not many will want to even attempt this. So shall we say its the fastest pre overclocked card you can buy for arguments sake?

    Some manufacturers allow you to change cooler without invalidating the warranty... and either way, anyone who is buys a 4870x2 is either extreme enough to be happy changing the cooler, or is rich but n00b enough not to care that this has been overclooked to get 5 extra fps...
