Think the latest graphics cards from NVIDIA and AMD are big? Think again. German PC site PC Games Hardware made some pictures of the GeForce 9800 GX2, Radeon HD 3870 X2, and GeForce 7950 GX2, next to the massive Voodoo5 6000 graphics card which features four GPUs and measures 31 centimeters.

250nm on that particular Voodoo. Some of the older Voodoos used 350.

Some of the first processors, used 600-800nm.

lol look at the itty bitty fans on it :P and 250nm? -_-


I keep thinking...

The 9800gx2 is looking pretty good.....


But in a few months will it end up like the 7950 GX2 ? Cause on our own graphics card ranking list the 7950gx2 is just like miles away from everything else.
