Excellent news! I wonder how much its going to cost, and if it will require a crossfire-enabled board to run it. Nos, I'm relying on you for a review on this thing when it comes out haha.

Dosen't really look that impressive especially when they say stuff like this > "Chances are you're better off splurging on a single high-end card.

I don't really get why. Their price will probably be as much as a single card that is just as powerful as the two combined. So why use up that extra wattage? ~.~

my xtx is better than 2 cards anyway ... and soon my gtx will be as good or better than 2 xtx's

hopefully with the looks of it.. this card will perform on par to an x1950xtx and cost less... if it does, this will be one amazing card
