I'm waiting for the graphics tech that can gang two GPU's together on one card so that they can both use the whole memory buffer together and work as a single logical GPU. This will make the whole thing much more efficient:
- The whole memory buffer can be used, so wasting half of it on mirroring won't be necessary
- The two GPU's will work as one logical double-wide GPU
- Microstuttering should be eliminated
- The card will work exactly like a single GPU card, but with double the performance and its full performance will always be available without requiring any special profiles for specific games like we have now
Obviously, this kind of functionality won't be available with two physical cards, because the GPU's will be too far apart physically and on different boards.
This will be a true innovation and whichever company implements it first will wipe the floor with the other one. Well, here's hoping it comes to pass.
