NVIDIA killing the GTX 295?
 
It's NO STOCK almost everywhere. And what is in stock are the higher priced water cooled versions.

MWAVE....Outpost....NEWEGG...Amazon are all coming up no stock for the $499 price point versions. Hell Outpost had then for $479 when they were in stock.

THey might be switching production over to the single-pcb version.

Thats right they are clearing their inventory of the dual PCB cards ready for the single PCB cards. With the single PCB people can add watercooling and still only take one slot up :)

Yet I'm willing to bet. Dual PCB stock cooler will run cooler. Even with a fan that has a larger surface area.

Dual PCB cards are hard to attach the watercooling too. Still a GTX295 i can not afford but also should be cheaper as you only need one rather then 2, maybe 15-20% cheaper.

The problem with single PCB is cores share heat amongst themselves, and the PCB must also support the weight of the cooler. In the case of dual PCb cards. The cores do not transfer heat via the PCB too each other. And both transfer heat towards the middle ((IE the heatsink)). Plus instead of having the PCB support the large heatsink. The Heatsink is supporting the PCBs, causing no strain to the PCB itself.

Yes it might be cheaper for Nvidia produce. But for the AVG consumer the dual PCB solution really is the bees knees of thermals.

Considering the 295 uses the 260 cores and not the 285 cores, it definitely would be cheaper than dual 285's. Maybe even more than 15-20%. But you'll likely get 15% less performance as well. All I know is since all my hardships with the first dual GPU card (the infamous 7950GX2) I seriously doubt I'll ever go that route again.
