Since it is GDDR5, the speed reported by GPU-Z are only 1/4 what the actual speed would be, making the memory actually 8.3GHz, which is such a step up from current GDDR5 that I think it is probably fake.

Nothing for certain, but too many warning flags on this shot - I think it's BS.

Older version of GPU-Z, missing some info options. Lousy screenshot resolution. The board apparently isn't PCI-E 2.0 (at this point, why would that card be in a PCI-E 1.1 board?). The die area just happens to be identical to that of a GTX280 (despite the process shrink and massive increase in shaders), the bandwidth is WAY out of whack for a 512bit interface x 6.72Ghz effective memory speed, the amount of memory is excessive, even for a high-end card, and that's a wierd driver version - can't seem to find it.

Now thats what I call a graphics card.
Yep when I make the jump to an I5 System I will definitely be pooping one maybe two of these in....will have to move one GTX 280 to a second build and sell the other. Although I'm sure they will be pricey.

Whether its "fake" or not will soon be revealed.....the Bandwidth that it showed was like...WOW...216 GB / Sec vs my 280's 160 GB / Sec....for all the Red Boys out thier this will likely drive down your 4870x2 's to reasonable prices and who knows what the Red Teams answer will be...

Presently I get no Lag playing 1920 x 1200 High though (not very high) as I don't have DX10.....around 55 - 60 FPS 2 x GTX280's!
