Default Re: NVIDIA killing the GTX 295?

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.
