    Galaxy prepare Masterpiece

    Gigabyte blazed a now well-trodden trail with their 3D1, a graphics SKU that paired two NV43 GPUs in 6600 GT configuration, each with its own local memory store, on the same PCB. Single board SLI has come a long way since, with ASUS having a go with dual 7800 GT last October and NVIDIA themselves releasing a reference dual-chip, dual-PCB SKU for their AIBs last month with 7950 GX2.

    Now it's Galaxy's turn, using a custom 6-layer PCB design and cooler to pair G73s and create the Galaxy Masterpiece dual-7600 GT.

    Very odd idea imo. I presume this midrange card, will now cost more than a 7900GT, about 40 pounds more presuming the 300euro price tag is right.

    I presume the performance will be nearly the same.

    Well it'll certainly be an interesting review.
