ASUS is coming out with a new ATi 5870 called the Matrix 2GB Edition. This will be the fastest and most overclockable single graphics card in the world. It has yet to be released to the people, but most major websites have gotten them and have pictures. I haven't found any sources that say the exact release price, but most say it will be somewhere in the $499-$549 price range and will try to compete with the GTX 480. This in my opinion will be a fair fight, after most people say the 5970 is two cards in one. I have a couple links here, one to Youtube, and one to TechPowerUp. They don't say much, but enough to give you that slight nerdgasm. Tongue This card in my opinion looks way better than the "batmobile" cards. It will have two 8-pin power connectors, pretty beast eh?

That's pretty cool.  I know MSI and PowerColor have their Eyefinity-6 2gb cards out, but this one seems to be geared more towards the overclockers out there.

The price range seems to fall in line with those particular 2 models out.  Looks pretty cool!
