Good review, seems like a good card and keeps up there with the 295X2, air cooling keeping up :) Granted they are charging something like $300 premium over 290X's but I think the people who buy these kind of cards are used to it... sure is cheap compared to the Titan Z xD

 

"It might be fun watching hell freeze over!" I would never expected that, especially with the card/series being called Devil 13 :lol:

 

Why not put in 4K and I assume 3 1080P monitors Eyefinity the the graph title? Might be more attractive to people who are less technical/n00bs/random visitors

The very first Devil 13 was a HD 6970 . The first dual-GPU Devil 13 was the 7990.

 

I remember pondering at that time if it was worth it. Then I decided to keep my 6950 until the arrival of the 7970GHz.

Well judging from other websites people who aren't gonna buy them also look at reviews like this, probably just fanboys and such but meh, visitors nonetheless :P

I'd take the 295X2 before this...better power consumption and temps and performance...

 

Good work!

Good review, and I have no intention of buying it, but it was an interesting read to see the benchmarks and temps. Mostly guys with small penises and drive Ferrari's would buy this card. :lol:
