The new arrival....
Every once in a while it really is worth us posting previews of products that have just landed in the office. This would have been live much sooner but we had some hard core Olympic level rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock to see who would get to do the preview and the main review. In true Sheldon style I manipulated the rules and won (that's good right?)
Anyways lets take a look at the cards specification's before moving onto the preview video.

It seems strange that the custom cards are available before AMD release their own 7990... Does this mean there will not be one? Only time will tell, for the moment all we care about is how well the Devil 13 7990 performs in the OC3D barrage of tests. Be sure to check back soon for the full review, until then you can discuss your thoughts in the OC3D Forums.
