2) More recently, OEM is used to refer to the company that acquires a product or component and reuses or incorporates it into a new product with its own brand name.
In any case, I think we can both agree that had the 570s launched with 1.25 and 2.5GB versions (like the 560Tis launched with 1 and 2GB versions) it would have been much harder to recommend a 6970s.

I'm glad to see EVGA branching out into the double RAM cards, and hope more manufacturers follow in EVGA, Palit, and Gainward's footsteps.
