In respect to VRAM, 2 x 1GB still is only 1GB....

Exactly. If you all read the resolutions on the gaming benchmarks, you will see that it's still performing great at 2560x1600. Keep in mind that this card is able to achieve 32fps in Metro@1600p with only 1GB VRAM, and still beat the 580.

Does it Support Quad SLI? No? Then it's a total Fail

Maybe, but it still only has access to 1gb.

Yes but turn the aa up and see what happens then

And on that note why don't they think, well lets not use the entry lvl card...
Maybe use the 570 chips?
Or even better lets put more vram on it like 2gb per chip.

For your first statement you have a point there, but at a resolution that high, why do you need AA?

They would be wasting their money if they made a card such as that. The costs for such a card would be well over $700. Most people would just buy a 590 or a 6990 with that kind of money.

Actually, in Metro 2033, you don't need any more than 1Gb. I can crank settings up as high as they'll possibly go in DX11, and is smooth as butter. BF3 mp on the other hand, no way. I can run ultra, but have to turn down the aa or it gets almost unplayable with the lack of mem. Can't wait to see how bad the next installment of Metro's gonna punish the cards!

Why compare it to the gtx 580? It's dual 560s, isn't it already obvious that it's going to outperform a single gpu card? If you were to get a single 580 you'd have more upgrade paths in the future, opposed to buying this, wouldn't you?

Also the card doesn't support 4way SLI...so isn't this pretty pointless?

eVGA fail, seriously their brand heatsinks suck. The double shot was noisy and didnt cool any better than the reference types. I had the GTX 570 DS and I am glad I sold it.
