"See how much shorter the card length/design and BEEFIER fan the v2 offers compared to the reference card! The V2 is a asus designed 5870. that means we engineered the card from the ground up with the 5870 core. better cooling, better materials and caps allow you to push the card more or for additional reliability" - ASUS PR

Wow the difference between the two are huge! Wonder how long it is and what the temps and performance will be like.

I wonder if the board uses any less power with being smaller.

Not to dig up an old thread, but I have to say this thing runs COOL...My dad got one of these. There were times when I barely felt heat with my hand when I saw it. Even under load it wasn't as hot as I thought it would be.
