Very nice review...

I wonder why Sapphire decided to go backwards on the fan for the cooling...less blades?

I wonder what the reasoning is behind this or if it's just on the card you received...

Wow...performance is amazing.
I would LOVE to see how the ASUS EAH4890 TOP performs against this!

I had read the clocks would go up to 1GHz on the R790 core. Here is the beast that I was waiting for!

I must say I am impressed. I wonder what it could achieve once overvolted...

It'd better be cheaper than a GTX 285!

Im hoping I can get a second one for some Crossfire action to see how well they scale at 1000+MHz.


The fan may push more air than the design with more blades but the card runs cool anyhow.

Damn...that's one HELL of an OC on the core/memory. If only my 4870X2 would clock that high...:lol:
