^^ Look carefully friend. I mentioned pounds and not dollars. 500 dollars are roughly equal to 300 pounds.
And at this price, its a bit cheaper than the gtx 580 and is a better performer than the 580 as well.
But the main concern is the heat and 86c is very hot. So in countries like india, that can be an issue in hot places like north and eastern india.
Besides there are also some micro-stuttering issue.
So people should not jump for it right away but should wait for these problems to be fixed.
Btw thanks for that good review buddy.
Here is the Club3D HD 6870 X2 review from Guru3D.
Performance wise the card got the guru3D recommended award. The problem is the high noise level. The card is really cool, thanks to its custom cooling. Other problem is price, it is costlier than 2 HD 6870. But the thing is if you purchase this card, it will leave you space for future upgrades, adding another HD 6870 for Tri Fire or another X2 for Quad Fire. And two X2 is Quadfire is far better performer than a GTX 580 SLI in a cheap price.
^^ Nice card, this should have come from ati from the start, so that it would be available everywhere, here in India we can't buy these, no club3d here, doesn't sapphire has a 6870x2? Is it available here?
