wow, that's the first time I've even seen a 7950 and it's not even one freaking PCB? I dunno why you'd bother with something like that considering it looks no different than SLI except the cards come shipped together and unremovable

And I see they used alluminum in it which is not so good

Gaara the 7950GX2 was made for quad SLI. In any case, 2 cards fit in one slot so if you have 2 of them in SLI its quad SLI. See? I dont see the use of just getting one of these.

Yup, and they don't use aluminum. The new block should be released any day now.

The waterblock is made of aluminium, cooper and stainless stell
Sounds like a recipe for disaster.
