That's not a real dual core video card. It just has 2 GPUs on one board.
yeah hence why both gaara and I are saying that they are called 'dual gpu' cards not 'dual core'

Who knows though they may eventually have dual core video cards as the norm like CPUs are becoming....by the time quad core CPUs come out, dual core GPU's might be quite frequent.

And yes I realize your comment wasn't directed at me, was just making my own statement

To the dude above: Well TECHNICALLY it's supposed to be like the 6600GTs in SLI to some degree, but I believe it actually performs a bit lower than two cards in SLI....however newegg is wrong in labeling that a 'dual core' card

'Dual GPU' would be appropriate
