    Intriguing. GCN1.1 version of pitcairn? Or trimmed down version of GCN1.1 taihiti?

    Slightly prefer the former to the latter, though not an upgrade path for me.

    So... Hexus... Sounds like you have a review sample in the test bench already. Care to enlighten us?

    Because the curiousity of the public is a great reason to break NDA and guarantee you never get another test sample again.... Hexus play the far more canny game of waiting for someone else to break NDA then reporting on the "rumour"

    Such a gulf in price between the two existing models, they must be able to fit 10 more cards in that gap (jokes!)

    If there naming structure wasn't bad enough this just takes the biscuit unless it is actually faster than a 280x they got my hopes up with the 285 name
