Thinking that mo' memory doesn't equal mo' problems, Gigabyte has went on and constructed a new Kepler-powered graphics card with 4 GB of onboard VRAM (double the usual amount), the GV-N670OC-4GD. This GeForce GTX 670 makes use of a WINDFORCE 3X 450W triple-fan/triple-slot cooling system, features an Ultra Durable VGA design and has its Base/Boost GPU clocks set to 980/1058 MHz (up from the stock 915/980 MHz).

Triple-bullshit!

1. Triple-slot... why...
2. 4GB on a card that won't use them properly as it can't manage multiple-screen 30+FPS gaming setups on it's own 80% of the time, and if you try SLi, see point 1.
3. 440 Euros WUT?

Triple-bullshit!
Your three points. I agree.
1. Triple-slot... why...
Because triple slot is the new black?
Because the majority of people only use a single card ?
Because the majority of SLI capable boards being sold have triple slot spacing between primary and secondary PCI-Ex16 slots?
Every Asus Z77 ( 14 of 14) same layout applies for P67 and Z68, Asus X79 (11 of 11), Gigabyte 40+ models of P67/Z68/Z77 and 5 of 5 X79, every ASRock P67/Z68/Z77/X79, every EVGA Z77/X79, and 3 of 4 P67/Z68 ATX boards. In fact it would be easier to list the boards that only have 2-slot spacing.
You'd have to go back to X58 or further back to see any appreciable number of 2-slot SLI cert'ed boards.
2. 4GB on a card that won't use them properly...
BFD. It's a marketing bullet point, it's no different to any number of GTX 680 vendors or Sapphire jamming 6GB onto a 7970 Vapor-X
3. 440 Euros WUT?
Seems about par for the course fior a 4GB card judging by the prices from the link given in the article

Now explain how could one use 3 or 4 of them in SLI? Because that's what this card is meant for.

Wow Gigabyte you are way too late on this one.

Uh, maybe the same way that people have always gotten around the issue. PCIe x16 risers and a suitable chassis (i.e. any chassis that has 10 expansion slots with a vent grille beneath (and suitable clearance to the PSU) or, 11 or 12 slots as standard fit out. Here's some examples since you seem unacquainted with the concept:
A76X, V2120, PC-80N, PC-Z70, any number of Mountain Mods and CaseLabs permutations - especially if you take into account GPU compute server tower chassis have 11 and 12 slot configs (and the rear I/O being ATX spec means that they are interchangeable with any other chassis with enough space to fit them)...pretty much a necessity when motherboards have the same number of expansion slots
Let me guess, Your next trolling argument will be that quad-SLI/CFX owners will happily pay for €1760 for cards but will balk at paying for a decent chassis to enclose them.

/Helping people get past the concept of doing anything other than sticking part A into slot B (The Ikea Syndrome) since forever

It is? Do tell how you came up with that? :confused:
