Default 9800's do exist!

So I found this while surfing the net, and I know people on this site were posting that we will not see 9800's till November and such but I would have to assume that they are a little closer than that if they are showing off any of this stuff.

Personally I think it is a big ugly card. It is just like a big box, not a very good design but I am sure it will perform well and I am looking forward to using one of these when they come out.
