Thank You
Is it two 6pin PCIe or is it one 8pin PCIe and one 6pin PCIe power plug.

I'm pretty sure it is 1 6-pin PCI-e and 1 8-pin PCI-e.

I'm pretty sure you can't be pretty sure.

When it comes to these Fermi cards, nothing is a given.

It's sure,at least as far as the cards shown at CES in early january......The pictures of the cards shown working had a 6 + 8 pin PCI-e power connector setup,so the power use of the card is anywhere from 225 to 300 watts with that arrangement.

This is pretty much the best pictures i could find on short notice(click to make it bigger),but we can notice that the top power plug is an 8 pin one,and the bottom one seems to be a 6 pin one.

* Asus may show Dual GPU Fermi on Compute 2010.

If what they think it could imply is correct, then yes a single GTX 480 could be faster or at least come close to a HD5970

Hehe, I haven't seen it, what did you post there? lol

I'm not superactive there, but I like to read the threads there. My nick is wjjkoevoets there. Sometimes I reply to threads, but not very often.

Hehe, the Fermin card I recently had a debate with some members there because they were claiming semiaccurate.com is a very reliable source ... after some discussion they actually convinced me Few days later, the Fermin article appeared and I only read some specs and was so euphoric that I immediately copy pasted some stuff en started posting on some fora (like tweakers.net) ... because I like to bring the latest news I made a big mistake not actually reading it ... yea, I thought it was real :x I won't make that mistake again

The tweaker site is a very good news site and they have a very big dutch community And same, also not a superactive member You will find most of my posts in the latest Nvidia thread and a few in the Flight simulator thread
