I wonder how big it will be once they put fans/heatsinks on the cores. I bet they'll have to use some major fans to cool it down.

isnt it that the dual core cards are already in SLI, so you cant SLI those? i remember someone bringing that up with the dualcore 6600.

Yea, the dual GPU cards use the SLi technology to utilize them both, so you wouldn't be able to use two of them at the same time.

Unless nVidia update thier drivers to support it. IIRC the SLi is scaleable to a good degree.

I don't see any SLI connector on that card, so it's unlikely that it'll support SLI.

Actually the connector isnt 100% required. DId ya know that? You can run without the connector but you lose about 30% of SLI's effectiveness. Not very attractive. I can just imagine the power 2 of those baby's consume. My 2 6800GTs consume alot as is.

Wow.. That card looks larger than my Voodoo5 5500! oO But that's to be expected from a card with 2 cores. Nothing wrong with more power!

Few more shots, the one where the card is plugged into the mobo really makes you realize its size :p

ASUS said the card might never make it to retail anyway.
