    ASUS Extreme N7800GT Dual - Full review

    As an engineering showcase and just as a cool piece of hardware, the Extreme N7800GT Dual presses all the right buttons. The PCB design on its own is worth a separate article, the issues you have when supplying power to two GPUs from a single power input and the layout issues to overcome are fascinating in their own right and in that respect, ASUS's engineers responsible for the card should be proud.

    That was fun. Any idea how this stacks up against "traditional" SLI performance-wise? Just curious if there is any evidence of benefit/detraction from using one slot versus two.

    I should have made that point more clear in the article. Compared to SLI GTs in the regular fashion, performance is very nearly identical when you match clocks.

    This reminded me of MSI's Dual 6800U with an SLI connector. It also reminded me of Gigabyte's Quad SLI...Stick them both together and you have yourself 8 GPUs running at once...
