Windows 7: XFX Alert Stolen 5970 Black Editions

Well the only major differences are the 6 DisplayPorts and the 4GB of memory on them. You're really only going to benefit from these if you're running a 6 monitor Eyefinity setup at max resolution.

Yeah I'm on just 3 displays, and would never run six. This is for FSX, otherwise I run just one 1920x1200, and so otherwise my Gpu is absolute overkill for almost everything else I do. But FSX is very important, very central to me, naturally, and so it was worth every penny, just for that, no doubt about it. Although I rarely recommend these type of cards to friends, but taking into consideration their needs. Very few need the power.

Curious wordings.
I was just thinking the something as I read the post.
Hmmm.... Didn't know you could "persecute" by law

Persecution - the subjecting of a race or group of people to cruel or unfair treatment, e.g. because of their ethnic origin or religious beliefs

Prosecute - take legal action against somebody: to have somebody tried in a court of law for a civil or criminal offense.


@ thefabe, I got that same e-mail about being placed in a winner pool for the limited edition card. Hmmm....we'll see

Whoever wrote the email is poorly educated.

I wouldn't necessarily say that; I'd say they probably wrote the article in such a way to give hint that it wasn't genuine. A word clue.

The bid history and the bidders seems apprehensive. There are only 20 bids and the price has skyrocketed to $10,499.00 from $100.00 and the bidders are few in numbers. Most number of bids are done 2 guys. I guess these are employees of XFX just bidding for the extra hype. What do you think guys?

Well the latest e-mail from XFX says all the bids on it are legitimate bids. It did get up to $999,999, but then about 20 bids were removed that brought the price back down to around $10,000, so I guess all the fake bids have been removed.

I think Viral Marketing Ploy had to include Ebay and their actually isn't a card up for sale as it has fluctuated in price and amount of bids so many times. Another thing that is different about this card from what I can tell is the fan placement being in the middle of the card as opposed to the end.XFX Alert Stolen 5970 Black Editions-xfx-radeon-5970-black-edition.png

If this is all truly just a marketing gimmick - it's a poor one.

If that card legitimately sells for 10K+ - to a 'normal' home user, (not just a company rep using XFX money) then they are simply a fool.

Agreed I could find a lot better ways to spend 10k. Fabe

Crossfire'd 5970 - $600 good value?
Hiya, i'm wondering if a pair of Radeon 5970s, overclocked, with water blocks included (and original fans/packaging) and a 'bonus' Nvidia 470 to boot is worth $600. I don't plan to keep the Nvidia i don't think. He tells me that was installed for 'Physix' - do many games make good use of that? ...
