    For once it didn't take 6 months+ for non-reference ATI cards to make it to market! Hooray! Let's hope this isn't a one-off...

    Unfortunately the 6 + 8 pin power configuration means I'd need a new power supply to even use this one - I remember seeing a black ASUS board with the same thing a while back so I'm guessing this will be the norm for the 4890s with large overclocks.

    Can't you just use an 8pin adaptor fed off two molexes?

    Good point, looking back Sapphire bundled one with the 4870X2 Atomic (thing in the middle of the 4th picture), so they'll likely include one with this too
