That's supposed to be a link to the status where I compared the Armor MK1 to the MK2.....

The card is basically the armor with a color change.

To be fair, they did change the cooler size, which I would hope helps because the Armor was the only cooler design I always turned people away from due to it's poor performance, especially on the higher end.

 

Now I have to wonder if the MK2 was needed at all; the Mech looks very similar. Perhaps a bit of a thicker heatsink? Hard to tell from just the one photo

Have to wait for reviews if it ever gets released into the market.

Cool.

 

RX 580 prices have been dropping so hopefully within the next 2 months it will get back to MSRP.
