Ok, they changed from Ultra to GT, but I don't care. I mean, you can buy these monsters! :eek:

Thats pretty f'in sweet, what kind of power does that thing need?

Imagine that In SLI :eek:

If that is an updated version of the dual GPU card, I still don't believe it

i believe it.

oh and, you cant run it in SLi, as it takes the full x16 bandwidth ;)

if you put connectors on it and ran it in a Tyan mobo, it might be possible. wow, imagine that......

Until I see it for sale and the specs for it, I'm a non-believer. Oh, and I want benches against current SLI rigs too :D

This is what I have been waiting for and why I haven't gone SLI, but I don't see it for sale yet!

But you still need an SLi capable motherboard, right?

With both chipsets built into one card, that should work perfectly in an AGP slot. There is plenty of bandwidth
to go around at AGP 8X! :) The SLI communications would all be taking place internally on the video card only.

Does this mean they aren't going to release the dual 6800 Ultra card? :(

But you couldnt run these in SLI right?
the SLI connection is already in use and all, internally.

SLI was just a marketing gimmick, this is the real deal.

Simply WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW

Btw, they cant dual GPU on one card wit AGP8X.

I love that fan :)

i wish they made an AGP version :) some how

Forceware Release 75 supports Multi-GPU-Environments. Although I don't know if it's possible by now (Hardware).

Such a card is justified only if its cheaper than 2x6800GT and I doupt it is.

rohit: Why is that? To the rest of the system it should appear as one big 3D core.

You're right, it does.

ASUS GFX cards are pretty expensive. This will probably cost well over a thousand US dollars...

Hopefully they pair it with some "super-fast DDR1" memory like their Ultra Extreme card. :rolleyes2

It'll cost ~900$ which isn't so much.

H'm... 900's not bad at all.

Costs more than two 6800GT's :(

If it was $900 and each core had it's own dedicated block of 256MB GDDR3, then it would be a good deal.

The AGP 3.0 spec (8x) supports multiple GPUs on the same bus. It's quite possible, however unlikley, that we could see a dual GPU card on an AGP 8x connector.

Ya its possible, afaik, it wont perform any close to the PCi-e one.and it will have more complications. atleast thats wot i read on anadtech and xbit, wen gigabyte 3d1 was released.

initially it will cost sumthing arnd $1000, later on it shld come dwn to 600 or so.

So you DO need an SLi capable board to use this, right?

Dunedain

rohit: I don't see why performance would be affected. AGP 8X has plenty of bandwidth to handle
dual 6800 Ultra's on a single card. So what would hurt performance?
