Imageshack pics seem to be working now :) Ghost Recon is kind of an old game though...heh

Cool pictures. Looks really nice.

Makes me sad that i wont be able to buy it though :(

So it "confirms" the 2 power connectors
That means over 150 W of power consumption

That would be awesome if those prices were correct.

Ya I saw that. WOW. That is a powerhungry card..

Looks nice. And $540 for the ASUS model? Hell yeah... that means the other brands will probably retail at $500. I didnt expect that, but I deffinitely welcome it. :D

Reminds me a lot of the looks of a 6800ULTRA back in the day.

Just because it uses 2x PCIe connectors does not automatically mean the card uses 150w dedicated. What if the card actually only pulls 90w from the PCIe connectors? This would mean that it still would need 2 dedicated connectors, since only one PCIe adapter can pull 75.

I'm a bit disapointed that they kept the power connectors on the wrong side like in the early pics we saw. They better have a damn good reason for that, because it seems like itd be a pain in the ass :o

The two power-connectors are a good thing. What they will do is certify that fewer individuals who use multi-rail power-supplies will get stuck trying to pull power off a rail without enough amps to power one of these monsters. They probably serve a two-fold purpose here: supply more power and allow the ability to pull off two separate 12v rails (if you have at least a tri-rail PSU).

Say for instance you had a multi-rail PSU with 18A on three 12v rails:

12v1: 18A (cpu only)
12v2: Molex connectors / PCI-E 1
12v2: PCI-E 2

By plugging in both connectors (PCI-E 1/2), you could pull power from an additional rail that you otherwise wouldn't have been able to.

Oh, and what's with the Ghost Recon theme!? Guess what vendor card I won't be getting!!

Well, I guess it won't matter since I plan to WC it anyway. Anybody know of a waterblock that will most likely fit these cards?

I highly doubt that most partners are including ghost recon in their bundle. Actually I can almost guarantee that my cards won't come with any games. Everytime I have ordere don launch the bundles are weak. Usually Asus doesn't have a bhuge % of launch boards here in the states anyway...

You are an inside man, what's EVGA bundling with, eh?

I hear rumors that the hole config is that same as 7/6 series...

Good point. I wonder if this means we can technically run off just on PEG connector.

Hopefully a second card... :D

Yup, I don't have any problems with that. My quad rail will be just fine then. I probably can supply enough power off of the one PCI-E connector that is directly connected for one card, and then the two modulars go to the other card.

Thanks, I hope you're right. I'd like to go ahead and order some and have them ready for when G80 releases.

There's 2 different cards on those pictures peeps
Look at the positioning of the fan connector on both
Also, one of the photos it shows the fan a bit oval, too much oval....
(thanks to Jawed at B3D for the attention to detail...)

That, or they're playing it safe. Either way, good thing, imho.

hmm i remember hearing that rumour that this card can do physics as well graphics at the same time?

maybe that is why its Ghost Recon :)

If you check out the first link in this thread, the listed specs for the card also lists a physics processing unit. ;)

:wtf:

They refer to it specifically as the "Quantum Physics Effects Processor". HTH can it not be just for physics? Is this card now going to triple as a sound card as well with SoundStorm3 APU integrated into the QPEP die? Or maybe the GPU die? :p
