That would be schweet. But i doubt that nvidia is going to have anything like that for awhile.
And theres no gurentee that the 8000 series cards will also have low power consumption, because i bet its going to be a totally different core w/ totally differnet archatecture than the 7000 series.
Haven't there been rumors that next-gen gfx cards might require dedicated psu's?
