Nvidia used to release dual GPU cards about 5~6 months later after ATI released their dual GPU cards,in order to reclaim the overall peformance crown for a single card,so what happened this time,and why is it taking so damn long to beat that HD5970 card?


And yes,ATI's next series is about 2~3 months away,and Nvidia better pray that those cards don't add another 40~50% more performance over their current HD5000 lineup,otherwise i see Nvidia's pain lasting well into 2011,but that's just my opinion really.
Not sure on their dual gpus, other than trying to get power and heat under control.

Yes, SI will be here soon. Not arguing that at all. Just that, you can't compare in benches when there are none. Only can offer theoretical numbers. Wasn't a slam.

Of course not,but it's a given they'll be faster no matter what,and that Nvidia is still paying the price of being really late,and still not having a Dual GPU card themselves that beats the HD5970,most likely for power and heat reasons like you mentioned.


Will a dual GPU card based on the GF104 do it?,it might give the HD5970 a good run for the money given the benchmarks posted,but by the time it might be released to market,you guessed it,here comes SI from ATI,which again,will probably have a Dual GPU based version yet again(HD6970??),so i'm not sure Nvidia will bother with it,trying to beat a card from what will be the previous generation by then.
