    Yeah it's definitely gonna be £1000...I just don't see the point in dropping that sort of coin on a single card, if you're paying that sort of cash you're probably gonna have an SLI/XF capable board and could get 2 seperate cards for much less with the same or better performance.

    You forgot to mention that you'd probably have to sell a kidney to buy one of these

    Price is stupidly high + the 8000 series this year will beat it.
    Asus are a bit late with this one.

    love the hybrid watercooling idea - would love to have a look at the insides of this card. this card will be so expensive. especially with the 8000 series around the corner will it be worth it over two top of the line 8000 series cards????

    Sounded like it had 4 GPUs until I saw the table; "The graphics card packs two Dual HD 7970 GHz Edition GPUs"

    If I am honest I don't really like the random cut lines on it but I am a neat freak so I guess that's why, I supposes you cant really see that side when its installed anyway not that I will be able to afford one

    Re: News - ASUS releases the “fastest graphics card on the planet”

    If your first thought is to criticise the styling and not to baulk at the price then please can you confirm what job you do and whether they're hiring at the moment

    Hexus competition? ;P

    I think the idea of the watercooler is pretty awesome, but surely anyone who can afford this card is going to have a properly watercooled system anyways?

    It's for people who have more money than technical ability.
    Many people are happy to pay for (relative) simplicity.
