Default g80 omg

According to Xpentor, NVIDIA G80 will make ATI stumble on April. Quad SLI itself can be implemented on a single card with two chips solution because it will carry the first dual core GPU ever with the support of DirectX10 and Shader Model 4.0.
quote from http://www.vr-zone.com/?i=3177

So does that statement mean that if I have one g80, it will automatically be SLI? and if I have two (which would normally be SLI) it's gonna be quad-SLI? and what about someone who already had a quad sli set-up. Does that mean if they bought four of these then they'd have an octo-SLI? lol... octo-sli...

I think they're saying some of the cards will have 4 cores and therefore function as quad sli on one card

6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
