Default Galaxy's Dual-GPU GTX 470 Prototype

Computex 2010: Dual GPU GTX 470 Videocard Spotted - HotHardware

It looks like it is going to possible to incorporate dual GF100 GPUs on a single PCB. At least, that's what the folks over at Galaxy Tech are dreaming up and we got a glimpse of it during Computex 2010. With the heat output and power requirements of NVIDIA's GF100 graphics chip, a lot of us were skeptical there would ever be a dual GPU version of Fermi. Imagine our surprise when this thing came out of nowhere during our tour of Galaxy's booth.

The card we saw was home to a duo of GF100 GPUs sharing a single PCB, it measured approximately 12" long, and featured two 8-pin PCIe power connectors, and three dual link DVI ports. Unfortunately, lips were sealed on any more specifics as it's merely a prototype but it looks like the dual-GPU videocard crown could could belong to NVIDIA once again.

Considering this card is rumored to be 130w+ above the maximum limit of 300w permitted in the PCI-E 2.0 specs I'm not sure how they would release it. Besides the other fermi based cards are known to exceed their "official" TDPs by a decent margin so in the real world this card could end up drawing close to 500w.
