Default Re: Dual GF110 GTX 595 Pic

Dang you fanboys are in a little denial on this one

I would love to see a monster card like this released as a reference design. But you know it's really, really unlikely. How many dual 8-pin reference cards have been released? None! I know there's always a first for everything, but this just seems like a stretch.

Also weren't there a few cases on certain X-58 motherboards of SLI 480s and 470s melting the 24-pin power connectors? I'm not necessarily saying nvidia's design is at fault here but what I am saying is the PCI-E spec is probably there for a reason and not just for fun. Though perhaps an 8-pin would actually reduce that problem since it should lower the need for power draw through the motherboard.
