Then those pipes must be for aesthetic too, 250W for 40nm wasn't expected

And lets wait some more, until march 26.

Wait and see, perhaps it isn't a sticker, and it has some Purpose. We won't know till someone has that card sitting in their hands.

And of course, lets see what the other non-XFX Cards look like.

Friday can't come soon enough. To many friends want my old gpus and won't stop bugging me. Told them a long time ago I was probably going to do it around boxing day but that didn't happen.
