Either way, that is sick! I wonder what the temperatures are going to be like.
Temperatures should be good though I'm looking at this as needing more cooling on VRM then anything else, since I thikn the 48xx series had some pretty hot VRMs.
still.. this is the reason I Held out on buying the xfx and all other 0-day 5870's cause none of them had software volt mods.. this'll be the one to get
And no, the stock 5870 is NOT fast enough so yes it DOES Need to be overclocked :D
I'm surprised - I wouldn't have expected this sort of thing for a few months yet. Maybe to throw a little water on Nvidia's eventual G300 fire. Still, definitely looks interesting. But it doesn't specifically say that this is a non-reference or custom design, so I wonder if that means that the VRM's are software controllable, similar to the first-gen GTX280/260's? And if so, it's quite possible that programs like Rivatuner will be able to do similar on other models, in due time.
