    My bad. But seriously the 5890 is definitely mentioned on at least one of them Hexus reviews.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    I stand corrected on the 5970 and 5850x2. However, the benchmarks I've seen paint the 5970 as being far more similar to the 5850CF than the 5870CF. It's also priced closer to two 5850, in line with it's performance.

    So what are people expecting with the 5850x2? Two nerfed 5850 with the equivalent number of cores, but performing like two 5830 or 5770 and priced accordingly?

    If it's basically two fully powered 5850, you'd end up with something that performs similar to the 5970 (maybe a bit better) and priced similarly (in accordance to the performance differences). Would there be much point to that?

    Terb: That's not an HD5890, it's called the 4GB HD5970, and codename Petunia.

    This video card is quite disturbing regarding the temperatures, power draw and price. nVIDIA truly is insane, but of course we knew that with their CEO swinging on the balls of Apple anyway.
