they have designed these cards for a specific purpose but added enough cool stuff to appeal to every day users who just have to have the best...just don't forget their true purpose when questioning some of the design aspects.
Ya I think they did that so they could sell more. If they made this only for the extreme overclockers then it would not sell that many. So in order to gain some profit they try to sell it to multiple groups but it is truly for overclockers.
