I would still prefer to Crosffire 2 HD 7970 GHz Vapor-X 3GB because here in the Canary Islands it costs 600€ for both 7970 GHz Vapor-X 3GB and the Dual HD 7970 Devil 13 costs 1000€. Wich means you get nearly the same performance than the Devil 13 at a lower cost.

That's just a gimmick, it can't use 528GB/s since it still uses just one slot, I honestly think this should read '264GB/s' (which is still impressive) :D
It can't use the two integrated memory channels at the same time because it still is a single card ;)
