It is much more important to know what sort of patient has a disease than what sort of disease a patient has - Sir William Osler
Epox confirmed that these cards will be altered from reference design but not too much - using some different capacitors.
FX5950 Ultra looks cool but similar to Gainward cards and I guess and hope that Epox goes green next time since that's the colour of the company and the color of Nvidia. Gainward and the current Epox high end card look more like cards painted in ATI hues, but we don't really care what colour they are as long as they perform.
FX5700 Ultra is another ultra that the company will announce and unlike our previous report looks very similar to Nvidia's reference design card but they all perform similarly to each other.
It's all about the cooler not the colour when you design the card these days and this dual cooling approach is something that's a coming in. A couple of companies use this kind of cooling and for the high end it seems Epox is going down that road.
Here are the pictures and the clock speeds are the usual Nvidia recommended speeds. µ
