This pic might might not show up big enough but if you take the original and just zoom in on the part highlighted.

If you look at the circle part of the fan in the centre, on the right side you can imagine the symmetry and where it should be on the left side.
But if you look at the top left where the circle part should be, you can see that it is missing. Also if you look closely at the tubing on the outer left side you can see parts that weren't properly erased, there are still parts there. And the part that is there doesn't line up with the bottom part of the circle.

I meant the color scheme.


also, is it just me or does it look suspiciously like a poorly modded 6990.

So, it is looking like this may be legit after all....
Not sure if that is a good thing because the pictures do look shooped. Maybe we will see some more leaks today, I doubt AMD sent many of these out though so there aren't may people who would actually be able to leak without being identified.

Agreed after getting into the image at a high res you can clearly see it's 2 images cut together, the top left hose is cut perfect to the card casing and not aliased also it has pixellation around it yet the card it self has none as SieB pointed out the hose that crosses the card has been poorly edited and appears thicker and erased badly in areas also it has a shadow that does not follow it's entire length.

I didn't know we had detectives on this forum. You are going through an awful lot of trouble to showcase this obvious fraud. It was april 1st mates.

Turns out it is legit, must just be the low res pics making it look worse than it is.

These hi res pics actually look good, still baffled by the 2x8pin though, definitely not much OC headroom.

Hope the hose is not actually as stupidly short as they make it out to be in that pic (probably to make it look neat).

The cooler itself does look a lot better than the R9 reference joke, but we can't deny that the black + metal look is a pretty Nvidia-ish thing after the entire Titan and GTX 7xx series.

I wouldn't be surprised if AMD did it on purpose
