XFX have officially lost the plot...
it's stupid, ridiculous, pointless, will probably get you arrested and will be massively expensive.
Where the hell can i buy it???
I saw this on another forum and didn't see why it was necessarily classed as a fermi beater ? :S.
+ The case looks more like an FN2000 imo as opposed to a P90 ;>.
ALL kinds of awesome
Yeah vdbswong, kinds of like some FN2000 P90 love child.
Yeh, that is either a really poor representation of a P90, or it is in fact a FN2000, although I only remember the name thanks to vdbswong mentioning it, so if it isn't that either, well, sue me.
The main give away for me is that the P90 just sort of ends (only a very small amount of the barrell protrudes out), whereas this is clearly tapered towards a point.
Also, the P90 clip is long, thin and only bullet width, fitting on to the top of the weapon. I don't see how a card like this is even somewhat similar to a P90 magazine.
completely ridiculous but i have a soft spot for silly hardware like this. Itll be crazy expensive though £800-1000 as a guess,
why not just give us a normal 5870 or 5970 with 6 mini DP ports.
This is a bit overkill, specially on the packaging.
So any retailers with it yet?!?!
Potentially the best card on the market doubled up with guns..totally ridicules. What's not to like!? I want one..I won't be able to afford it, but I want it all the same.
Yeah... i originally wanted to say it seems like a combination of the trigger guard(s) from the FN2000 and the barrel of the Aug A3, but then i don't really think i'm qualified/knowledgeable enough to be making that kind of statement lol.
Wikipedia shows a civilian model with a longer barrel (since i assume it would otherwise be classed as concealable?) however as you say, the P90 in general has a flat-ended front and doesn't really taper down like the box :S.
+ as you say, that looks like it would use a more traditional magazine clip system as opposed to the P90's rail system.
Hmmm Akimbo graphics cards ................
Hand-guard and but-plate are F2000, muzzle seems like a AUG A3 and throw in a litlle G36 for the carrying handle.
I think it is cool, especially the 4GB memory part!
This card should kick some serious butt as the Radeon had great memory handling capabilities.
Errrr..who buys a dualcore card anyway? Those who do: whee!!! gun theme!
Lol, looks mad frankly, but I challenge anyone not to have a play with it if someone brought to a Lan event.
Doesn't the existing 5970 beat the GTX480 in most tests? Why does this one specifically need to be classed as a 'fermi killer'?
Will this not fall foul of the VCR bill and therefore be illegal to sell in the UK as it is a 'realistic imitation firearm'?
me thinks they might be trying to kill the fermi hype/letdown as well! they will tout it as the most awesomest card ever, and it will look like a cool automatic weapon that will get you arrested at an airport. but when it releases, it will run hotter than any other 5970, require even more power than any other 5970, wont outperform other 5970's and will actually ship in a case modified to look like an 1860 enfield civil war musketoon rifle that will get you laughed at when you pass through airport security..."does this thing shoot real bullets?"
