    The 1/2 height 5770 card already has a buyer. Hurry up powercolor, I need one for project O²! Saves hassles with riser cards. Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up Hurry up XD

    EDIT: If PowerColor needs a rig to showcase their new 1/2 Height 5770 I'm happy to accept sponsorship for O²!

    I'm sorry, but wouldn't the half-height 5770 be half-width? :D

    Half height I think, think of it as the one that fits in small PCs.

    With the Hydra chip, does that mean if i dropped this 5770 into a setup with my gtx285, i will effectively get physx to run on the 5770? Or is this just nvidia exclusive only?

    Just wondering what the advantage would be for a 5770 in with a higher-end nvidia chip. The dual card setup purely for increased bandwidth doesnt cut it really... i mean the software issues already are horrendous for such a noble idea of hydra. I want the 5770 to effectively offload on set of physx calculations or something similar whilst my gtx285 does all the texture crunching.
