Well I won't argue with the sources you guys have provided. It just doesn't make sense to me to have the card be 13.5" long. But if it is, it is. Seems kind of a dumb move on ATI's part just to get the performance crown. Oh well. We will see when it finally comes out.

if AMD pulls the NDA off the top end boards i expect boards of the X2 range to have better cooling, power regulation, and shorter PCBs, along with the rest of the Lineup.

Isn't nvidia planning to release some behemoth to take the performance crown?

Yeah, a 4GB wouldn't surprise me - considering the 4870x2 was quite healthy with 2GB of GDDR5 (1GB for each GPU) . . . 2GB per GPU on the 5970 would seem appropriate. It'd be nice if each GPU could access the total allotment on the card, but highly unlikely.

As well, there will be an interface/translator chip between the two GPUs (just like the one on the 3870x2/4870x2) . . . it allows the two GPUs to "talk" to each other, without having to pass the information across the SYS BUS.


Isn't nvidia planning to release some behemoth to take the performance crown?

Supossedly . . . GT300 will be this beast. It's all somewhat speculation, though. There's rumor that GT300 will be a dual-GPU setup upon initial release, and all subsequent releases will be single-GPU cards. Seems rather strange for nVidia to release their upper-end "monster" right out of the gate, then follow-up with the lower end cards . . .

TBH, though, unless they've made a drastic change to architecture and design - I get the impression that the GT300 will be running on par with the HD5000 series. nVidia hasn't exactly made any "major" changes to their design structure over the last few years . . .

but, this is just speculation on my part . . . I think we're nearing the age that the two companies are pretty much on par with each other's performance . . . we'll have to see how it goes.

What, that the promises they're having to keep get this much bigger everyday? :laugh:

At this rate, the GT300 is going to be a quad-core monster with 8192 MB of RAM with a 1024-bit bus; it will be four slots wide and require 3 8-pin connectors; its performance will be slightly on par with 3 HD 5870's in tri-fire.

And it was available yesterday. All for only $999.

Come and get it!

No, no, no. The GTFO edition of 300 series must be six core or better.. and at least x6 the memory of a MARS.





In all honesty though, in the future I can see us running our GPU's in some console type box, then with an exstension plugging into the PCI i/o and into the PCIE slot.. the console like box will have its own power plug and water cooling.

All GPU's will be EXTERNAL.. LMAO

Cards keep getting bigger and bigger.. how much longer before we have to have these monstrous pieces of hardware hanging from 1/2" lip. Eventually things are going to have to either get smaller or find other ways to operate outside of a PC case. By the time you add a waterblock to these big cards they weigh a ton.

That thing you described exists or existed, but I think it never met the market. It was basically an enclosure with its own PSU that connected via cable to a especial PCIe card on your motherboard's PCIe x16 slot.

On the workstation market that exists too, Nvidia's one is called QuadroPlex: http://www.nvidia.com/page/quadroplex.html

They might as well list it for free. Its not like you can find a 58xx series card anyway.
Maybe they don't really exist. Maybe they're just a figment of our imagination.

Coincidentally, if ATI enjoys two years or so at the top and Nvidia can't answer the challenge (though I'm quite sure they will be -- Nvidia is rich compared to ATI), I will certainly start buying Nvidia cards, because I like helping out the underdog. :laugh:

What a weird world it will be.

yea that would be interesting for Nvidia to not be on top in performance and for them to go underdog a couple years.

Honestly the price makes perfect sense to me. i mean the HD 5850 is 299 now so 2 of those plus shipping is going to be really close to HD 5970's cost. And 2 HD 5870's cost like $780-$820 with shipping depending on where u purchase and find so for the performance i think the HD 5970 is going to have a better price/perf.
