Does anybody have the 8870 card as of yet? I ask because a new prebuilt system I am looking at has this card as an option. I figured I would ask and try to get some feedback on this card and also if there are any driver issues since card is so new. The card that they are showing in the picture when you select it as an option is showing to be a GHZ edition, so I do not know 100% for sure if it is or not.

As of right now, they are all simply 7k rebrands. I wouldn't be surprised if AMD skipped 8k and went straight to 9k. 

unless they plan on keeping two seperate 8k series. One OEM, and one GNC 2.0 retail verisons.
