    I'm disappointed in ASRock, those look completely generic pointy-plastic GPUs. With their SFF chops I was expecting some crazy half-length cards or single-slot WC cards.

    ...the non-X variants (550 and 560) are half-length, single-fan jobs.

    Yes, but so are almost every 550 and 560 (the 560 is a 75W card, if you're making it any larger that's just wasting aluminium and FRP). ASRock are renowned for cramming X99/X299 boards into ITX, so at least a shortened 580 or Vega variant (e.g. a homebrew version of the vanished-without-a-trace Vega Nano) was hoped for.

    Probably not worth the effort for the 27 GPUs they'll get from AMD:rolleyes:
