    I remember seeing those horrible coolers like on the 1600XT, fins tight on the inside and spreading out. Just begging to get plugged with crap and kill your card.

    Think I saw a review for one of those 512 480s where it sucked down 200 more watts than a normal 480. Would have been the most power hungry single gpu card ever released by far.

    I believe the GeForce 7900 GX2 was also pretty rare (and mostly for OEMs, it was quickly replaced by the 7950 GX2 since the original 7900 ahd lots of issues)

    Sapphire worked on a dual Radeon 9800 cards named Sapphire Radeon 9800Pro MAXX (reminiscence of the old ATi Rage Fury MAXX which also contained 2 chips)

    Geforce 7900 GTO was pretty rare, and very good.

    You mean this card?

    http://en.expreview.com/2010/08/09/world-exclusive-review-512sp-geforce-gtx-480/9070.html

    My favorite card design has always been the 7900 GX2, which was only made for a few pre-built systems and never sold at retail. You have a card listed in the DB as a 7900GX2 (http://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/172/NVIDIA_GeForce_7900_GX2.html), but its picture and specs are actually that of a 7950GX2.

    The 7900GX2 has a much longer PCB, a higher memory clock, dual SLI fingers, and full PCIe bandwidth (each GPU on the 7950GX2 got x8 bandwidth compared to x16 on the 7900GX2) This site has a better description of it (http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2006/05/01/quad_sli_geforce_7900_gx2/1).

    edit:

    Also, ASUS had a dual GTX 480 prototype http://www.bit-tech.net/news/hardware/2010/07/16/asus-shows-off-dual-nvidia-fermi-card/1

    Another thing to mention (sorry about the numerous posts in series). The X800 GTO AGP you have in the DB is somewhat incorrect. There are two versions of the X800 GTO AGP - a version based on the R480 with native AGP and a version based on the R430 with a PCIe to AGP bridge. They both have the same clocks and shaders. I owned the bridged version (this card, specifically SAPPHIRE 100131L Radeon X800GTO 256MB 256-bit GDDR...) and the R430 versions have noticably different PCB layouts and PCB lengths than the R480 versions.

    edit: I also noticed that you have Mac editions of some cards, so how about the GTX 285 Mac edition? I don't know if it's different enough from the standard card to warrant a separate page though. http://www.anandtech.com/show/2805

    OMG, those early Multi-GPUs just screams driver problems. :rolleyes:
    Between that and the 4870X2 in furmark :laugh:
    I believe many of those GTX480 512SP that exists are clocked even higher than GTX580s, on an inferior process which contributes to the problem.

    [​IMG]

    i remember reading some pc magazine article about a new player in the gfx market years ago before i even had interwebz connection, it was the first time i ever saw a dual gpu card (had no idea of voodoos back then). they never really caught on though.

    the V8 was released in 2004, when exactly did you get an Internet connection?

    i got my dsl connection at home some year and a half ago when the prices became acceptable for 4Mb downstream, 3 or 4 years ago i was at college and the place where i lived had shared 5Mb connection, before that i intermittently used a 56k modem since the dsl was ridiculously expensive (something like 40$ a month for 384k downstream with a 1GB traffic cap, i couldn't burden my parents with that since their combined income was less than 1k$ a month back then). poor people in a fucked up country with thieves running isp's, maximum dsl speed you can get here is 20Mb downstream with 768k (!) upload.

    You need to sit by two gtx 460 2win folding: around 350w of pure heat for each card...

    I got 4 of them folding in my appartment at the moment, and as space heaters they work great: no need to turn on heating, and it's -5c outside!

    They were really hard to find though.

    That doesn't really compare, that 480 would be sucking down about 500 watts by itself. Two would just be retarded.
