Sapphire HD2900XT heatpipe edition exposed

We've got a sneak peek at one of the custom heatpipe solutions that Sapphire are supposedly readying for release. Much better than the reference one in my opinion! Care to comment?

Ham spies two PCI-E connectors on the XT, not good. The XTX gonna need 5?

Be interesting too see how this weighs up against the stock cooler.

9 days till the next supposed release day *twiddles thumbs*

ROFL, it's a concern for sure. As far as a release date is concerned I've been seeing the 14th May and confirmed price of USD $399. But I guess we'll just have to wait and see

Crossfire could be interesting, do you need to squeeze the connector through the heatpipes?

I wonder how long it would take to see a return on slapping some solar panels on my roof to run my next gpu off. Failing that, a farm of hamsters in wheels with lots of little tiny dynamos It's a shame that a lot of people are going to have to wait for the prices to drop enough for them to afford a new PSU on top though
