Default Some questions

Hi there,
I have some questions about video cards

1) Are there going to be Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 69xx Vapor-X cards?
2)What's the best cooler? Vapor-X, Direct CU II, Twin Frozr?
Just curious. The 6990 probably gonna cost around 600-700 euro right??

1) probably?

2) the best cooler is subjective really, I mean they all cool relatively well. Noise is a factor as well with cooling you have to remember. If you're not picky, I wouldn't be picky, they're all going to perform well.

pricing for the $6990 is likely is the area of $550 usd. +- $50. - 450 euros? I'm not sure how computer part prices are over there.

I don't believe all OEMs are picking up the HD6990, as such the only "custom" card I'd expect to see is from ASUS in the form of ROG which will cost an insane amount if they do it.

I can't talk for the HD69** series, but LINUS tested the the GTX560TI in DirectCU II and twin frozr II iterations...

The twin frozr II is both QUIETER and COOLER...

I would buy a xfx 6999 and slap a Accelero XTREME Plus on it.

No, 6990 is not compatible with it. It only has like 1 GPU thing on the bottom and they say it only is for blablabla.. Or 6999? What's that. And how do you put it on it. I'm not so pro.

Silly me, I was dreaming again. But just wait a bit and arctic cooling will release a product for that and it will be amazing!
