    I doubt that whats go gr8 in 7950 GX2 nd multi GPU can be seen od some 1 year old cards. Remember some old Digit's GCard stootout in which there was a Gainward card with 2x6800GT linked with SLI on SINGLE PCB. Then why this 7950 has 2 PCB? And even if it has 2x512 MB only 512 is available[as said in that review that both mem chips holds same date]. Then is nvidia that stupid? After all they have underclocked the GPUs nd mem also.
    Also as bout perfomance there is not really a big margin b/w 7900GTX nd 7950...considering there is 2x7900 GPU in it. Its sure 2x7900GTX or even GT standalone cards in SLI would do more than that.
    Anyway why quarell bout a dream...

    I agree that dual 7900 GTX can have higher performance in SLI, but this card has 1 GB memory, which is incorrectly posted as 512 MB in the review. This card is like a single card which boosts the performance than the "single" 7900 GTX. Point is this single card is capable of giving more performace than any other cards. Even though expensive, I like it pretty much.

    Now doing some search in net nd found that this card is not like previous multi GPU cards. U can add two of them and run in SLI forming 4GPUs that is a quad SLI. nvidia is planning to increase the number of GPUs to 8 nd higher and can be expected to launch in near furure.
    But my question is:
    WHO THE HELL NEEDS SO MUCH POWER???.
    Even with a single 7900GTX u can play any game on a 19" monitor at max res@max quality. I think they wanna beat a Ferrari with their PC.
