I'm suprised to not see to much gossip on the new release coming up this May 30th or 31st.

Its kind of a breakthrough considering its 2 GPU's on a sigle card and now Quad SLI is a reality.

Is it because its slower that 2 7900GTX's?

just thought it was interesting.

I'm looking forward to it...I would deffinitly be interested in Quad SLI. Should be amazing.

I'd be more excited if two gpu cores(sli) worked perfectly(or as good as a single card). I can imagine the configuration headaches using 4 gpu's. Plus with dx10 in a year, what's the point?

LOL I'd love to care more about these but a) I really can't afford them with school so I don't want to lust for what I can't have b) I'm busy with exams coming up, c) Conroe is the "next big thing" so a lot of us are stock piling and anticipating that. And yes, wait for the product to be released, I'm sure a lot of lucky people on this forum will pick them up. :)

If they are significantly faster than my 7900GTX all around, and if they really are only $600, Im deffinitely going to do an eVGA step up.

Na, I paid $500. I bought it on release day, before they jacked the prices up $150 :p

So if the nvidia benches are even close, I could get a huge speed boost across the board for $100. On top of that, these cards are probably going to have great resale value, so when G80 comes around itl still be worth quite a bit.

All I'll have to do is force myself not to think about the hunk of fiberglass and plastic I just spent $600 on... :o

There gonna have a better resale value than the 7900s thats for sure, this is one of the reasons Im gonna step up + I paid $625 each for my cards:banghead: so I think it will be just shipping for me :D

dont you need an nforce4 sli x16 mobo for quad sli? i thought each GPU needed x8, so itd be x16 to each card.

I'll just be getting one. My board doesnt (officially) support SLI at all, so thatl have to do.

Its strange, for once I actually feel like I *dont* need to upgrade my video card. Everything runs perfect (except for Oblivion). But with a deal like this staring me in the face, Id be dumb to pass it up :p
