The one thing that concerns me is there is no reference version of the card. Does that mean no reference PCB or no reference cooler or both? If the reference PCB won't be released good luck finding a full cover block for the card

Ya, I'm itching to upgrade to an i7 of some sort. I'm just waiting to see if I should get a new 4770K and upgrade my motherboard, or just see if I can find a used 3770K and reuse my current board!

This card is awesome and the price will drive down AMD 7970 prices even further. Time for AMD to come out with something fast, this is bad for their sake.

Why not get the 3770K and put that in your system and go from there then upgrade next year instead of shelling out money for a new platform that isn't heaven over earth better than the current one.

Zero surprise to me (which is surprising!). As soon as my butterfly labs miners get here i'm gonna stick a couple in my box.

AKG has it right, these bad boys are born to be in SLI. 2x4GB ftw!!
