    I will be surprised if the dual-GPU is in fact based on 2 stock clocked 6970's, and not just 2 underclocked 6970's that will perform the same as 2 6950's in xfire.

    Doesn't look any different from when we saw it many months ago. Need something new, like specs. And wasn't it supposed to come out this month?

    How can something like that be passive cooled? I do find that hard to believe. Your right though, the fan is probably just covered in the photo.

    2 fans is the answer.

    wonder how the cooler will work one copper and one alum like the 3870X2, 2 copper hunks like the 4870X2, 1 huge copper hunk like the 5970 or 2 aluminum hunks like the 4850X2.

    Dual Copper Heat Sink with the fan in the middle always works the best.

    I meant for a blower style fan :respect:
    A fan in the center make use of the air flow better for a centrifugal fan.

    Well, the looks aren't doing much for it. It needs benchmarks to build up hype (even those biased, pure PR crap, ones, I don't care). But I'm hoping this will come to the stores soon and I can't wait to see nVidia's response to this.
