A handful of photos of XFX's upcoming Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition 4GB graphics card have hit the web. This limited edition model ships in a bag designed to carry small sniper rifles, the actual graphics card is tucked away into a plastic rifle that looks a bit like the P90, and the included accessories are hidden in boxes that look like magazines.
The card features a custom cooling solution and has two Radeon HD 5870 GPUs with 850MHz core and 2GB GDDR5 clocked at 4800MHz for each GPU. Pricing is expected to be over $1,000.
The card itself has a redesigned cooling assembly, that looks different from what the first iteration looked like. It has grooves on its top, and a badge with a limited edition serial number. Internally, the GPUs are pushed far apart, each has its own heatsink. The fan is located in the middle, it blows air to those heatsinks located on either sides. Power is drawn in from two 8-pin PCI-E power connectors. Display connectivity includes 6 mini-DP (DVI adapters included), supporting Eyefinity6. Each GPU carries the same clock profiles as the Radeon HD 5870, 850 MHz core, 1200 MHz (4800 MHz effective) memory, but addresses 2 GB of memory each. XFX seems to have commenced selling, expect it to be priced over $1000.
