I thought you have to have SLI to use the 8950gx2. I have the DS3 and it doesn't have SLI.

I would go with a 8900gs over a 8900gt myself if those specs are true. The gt is 33% more money for what looks like about a ~10% performance increase unless the gt overclocked more or something.

Why did they downgrade the memory interface of the GX2 down to 256 bits? No reason to go backwards.

oh baby! dual core!!
unless i missed something it's dual GPU not dual core and we've had dual GPU solutions for years. from the original Voodoo SLI to nVidia's SLI and the dual GPU 7800GT series.

I'd have to change my pants if the 8900GTX were to become a reality.

No, I guess the 8950GX2 has the same idea as the 7950GX2. It's just two cards slammed together into one, so it only takes up one PCI-E slot. That makes quad-sli possible.
