Although this one will be a different style of card compared to the HD5970 in the way that it uses a cylindrical blower (like the ones used in air-conditioners) to draw air from the rear portion of the cooler, circulate the air through the complex vapour-chamber enhanced heatsink inside.

The card looks to use two 8-pin PCI-e power connectors, expect this bad boy in the first quarter of this year.
