    Considering how well Fermi's been scaling this could be a good card - will no doubt suck electricity like nobody's business though

    So I'm guessing we've found what's going to cause the world to end in 2012.

    I'm waiting for Asus to do it with two GTX 480 processors....

    Mind you, you'd never be able to get a water block to fit it, so who'm I kidding.

    Power usage would be the least of my concerns. How will they get all that heat away. One chip on its own requires a good cooler. Two chips on the same board will require one super cooler.

    unless this becomes the first official water cooled reference video card I don't see this being released. A single fan solution probably won't work because the chip closest to the exhaust will be fed hot air from a chip running at 95 C...

    I'm actually liking this idea a lot. The heat and power concerns take a back seat when you have the sheer power of two high end fermis on in one card. +1 for Asus to SLi two GTX480s on one board and bundle it with a year's supply of liquid nitrogen and you're good to go. Also would such a card need four 8 pin power connectors?

    Re: News - Galaxy displays dual-GPU GeForce 400-series card

    worst case scenario they can resort to old Xeon axial flow system to force air out of the case.

    But in that case, the fins better be something special..

    Or, it can be a 3 slot limited edition monster..

    I think its the first "kitchen" edition, as it should include a ceramic plate to cook on and plumbing to heat up the hot water for the house.

    Re: News - Galaxy displays dual-GPU GeForce 400-series card

    Does anybody care about this? Is anyone buying NVidia cards these days when ATI have the jump on them in price, performance and power consumption?

    I'm not trying to bait anyone and have owned enough Green cards in my time but the current lot seem rather poor.

    Or can someone show me an Nvidia card that beats ATI in ONE of those 3 measures (price/performance/power consumption) whilst equalling it on the other two?

    That's what I mean - at the end of the day electricity = heat output.

    Will be interesting.

    If this is two GTX465s, which makes sense, it isn't going to compete with an HD5970, let alone anything higher. This going to have to be mighty cheap (and it won't be!)
