This card does look like a monster. I just wish picking a good graphics card that would last for years and years wasn't so darn hard.

While they're at it, making components more energy efficient, they should also consider making the size of these monstrosities, smaller. Or they're going to have to make a super tower class for cases.

The current HD3870 X2 has GDDR3 memory. This one has the addition of GDDR4 memory. That's pretty much it from what I see. I haven't read much into that card. But I guess they did it, so it can overclock higher.

GDDR4 is also more power efficient than GDDR3.
