Nice, a little overkill, but nice. You can already buy vid cards w/ 512 mb of video memory; however, the current 512 cards arent built for gaming. here's a 512: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...124-114&depa=1 and a 640!!: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...124-115&depa=1

A 512mb card for gamers, eh? Sounds sweet

I haven't read up in detail yet, but I presume this is going to be implemeted in the R520 (?).

Now, I wonder what nVidia have up their sleeves for this summer?... *waits for a brand new 'ATI vs nVidia' flaming war* hehe...

EDIT:-

Those Wildcat cards are workstation products, designed for CAD (Computer Assisted Design) and whatnot. There's no reason you couldn't play games on them, but they're not designed for that. Until now these super expensive cards are the only ones that have 512 meg's of RAM, that's why this news is a kind of breakthrough for the gaming community.

nVidia's current equivelant is the Quadro FX series, ATI's being the FireGL 9go search for them )
