Default Holy crap!

Well, to expand upon the conversation that some of us are having in the Processor section, I think I should inform everyone of this.

As we all know, or most of us know, that nVidia has released a motherboard capable of Quad-SLI. Which means theoritically you can have 4 GPUs working together on the same program, and all using the same motherboard. Well, what if we had a graphics card capable of hosting 2 cores, or dual cores? Wouldn't it be amazing to have 8 GPUs working together?

Well folks! It's now possible! nVidia has a 7800GT that houses two GPUs on it. It uses two of the 7800GT cores on the same PCB. So, what's 4 x 2? Eight! So, we now can have a computer that has 8 GPUs working side by side! Just thought I'd let you know!

Also, if you want to see this thing, here's the link!

screw that! thats not advancing technology! i dont wanna have to buy 2 of something for "double" performance just cos they cant evolve GPU architecture. its not advancing technology! we might as well have 2 computers running together in parallel. i just want my awesome Single solution and thatll suit me rightly.

I don't think this card is going to be very popular, and I don't thibk that there are going to be a lot of drivers for it. I just figured I'd give you guys a heads up on some new products.

EDIT: They are only manufacturing 2000.

What a waste of money...I'll bet performance gain to price ratio is garbage.
