Why? It's nothing more than two cards in SLI, people have been using that for ages.

If Hexus is right, then it's more of a single 3D Surround Vision card than anything else.

Or even two GTX580's? That'll be my route as soon as 580 drops below 500 bucks, I'll be snagging a second one at that point.

I'd be really interested in a dual-PCB card with two 570/580 GPUs and at least 2GB per GPU. For example: take two 570s, double the VRAM and put them side-by-side in an enclosure. I'd instantly buy two of those
Not sure if that's going to happen. Somehow I think a 3GB version of the 580 is more likely. I'd need a new board for that (Tri-SLI) but that's something I could live with since Sandy Bridge E is still in the far distance.

I'm definitely not going to buy any other card without having at least 2GB VRAM. I'm seriously VRAM limited now. Again kudos to AMD, too bad I can't stand their drivers
Stop being a noob and give them a try.

Did that with the last two generations, each time with the top end dual-GPU card.

Whilst the this card is made by EVGA, it may end up being an Nvidia design. No one but they know that. Only time will tell.

Well I assume it's just like what Asus did with the Ares or whatever it was.
