That's really annoying, and I'm might have been tempted to wait about for a 3GB version had I known that, but its just one article speculating.

Maybe if Fusion pans out for AMD, we would just be purchasing high-end GPUs in the future without memory, and either using upgradeable dedicated video memory, or hopefully the system memory controller will have caught up to the point where latency isn't so much of an issue for GPUs using system memory. So we could just pop in more RAM and allocate some to the GPU as we see fit.

A cpu is never going to have the insane memory bandwidth that a high end video card has. So high end GPU on a CPU will never happen. Don't think DDR3 is fast enough even using intels quad channel.

Think high end cards will be around at least another 10 years until something huge changes in the way cpu's are made.

Well folks, I bit the bullet, EVGA GTX 580 (standard non-oc) coming in the mail! Probably by next week, but I sent a rush order/next day delivery on Fedex, we'll see if newegg can pull magic and get it here tomorrow...lol

I have two GTX470 next to each other and don't go over 85C when i play Metro 2033 or Crysis. Also i have third one sitting on the bottom (GTX260).

I think these cards needs good case airflow. Infact i don't think GTX4xx produces any more heat then ATI HD5xxx cards.
