Never seen them. Do you have a picture or URL?

no for the one with the dual 7800gt card, you only need one pci-e slot, butt theres another power connector that you have to connect to it outside the card, for it to power both the cores. ig uess thats the drawback of it. i remember tomshardware had a review of it. and it took up alot of energy

Hmm, not so sure about that. Yea, you only need to use one PCI-E slot, but what about the chipset, thats what he's asking.

I think he might be talking about the cards that they used for the quad card setup on the Dell Renegade. 2 cards per PCI-E slot.

If it is, then the cores on that card are 7800GTs.

He means the Dual Core 7900GTX. It's actually going to be "released" by Nvidia and not a third party designer like in that dual core 7800GT.

Dell's Renegade will most likely sport Two Dual 7900GTX's in SLI instead of Four 7800GTX 512's in SLIx2. It's more cost effective for everyone, the 7900GTX's are faster, and run cooler and can be OC'd more.

It's a win-win situation, but we'll see what they do. Maybe it's Nvidia's way of ridding of extra 7800GTX 512 ... if there are any :P.
