I don't care about your FIREGL, they're workstation cards. There is NO SETUP that can pump out 300FPS Vhigh at that res.

HA! This has to be one of the funniest posts/sig rigs I've ever seen here on OCN. This guy just gave me a good laugh for the day. Hurray for kids!

BS i call complete BS on that there is not a single setup that can do that. and your card is a workstation card not a gaming card. it would overheat in crysis.

EDIT: infact i doubt you even have the setup thats in your sig. one of thse cards cost 2500 bucks. it seems to me you just went to newegg and built the most expinsive rig you could and put it on here.
Just because it is a workstation card does not mean it performs worse than a regular graphics card. In fact, their specifications are generally better than their mainstream counterparts. Wider bus, for example.

That means more heat for the air-cooler to dissipate, so clock speeds are going to be lower to compensate. Same issue as with the 7950GX2.

And suppose it were capable of performing as well as 2 G92s, then you have bandwidth issues. You would need a PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot to cover the bandwidth, since PCI-E x8 slots are maxed out by the newest cards.
Thats nothing more than an assumption based on a card two series ago, what happened with the 7950 is no guarantee that it will happen with this card.

So what if you need pci 2.0, you would be an idiot to buy these cards for your nforce3 mobo. Don't knock these cards down just because certain people's mobo's can't hack it.

Don't forget, in most cases at least from the first benches I saw, the 3870x2 performed better than two seperate 3870's, and thats with the heat of two gpu's.

I am definately not saying this card is going to be awesome, I am only defending it against the people making blatant assumption's about its performance using the 7950 as a basis for their statements, especially since hte 3870x2 proved it can be done.

Oh yeh, I guess that E8600 at 4.6 Ghz had nothing to do with your score, how about bumping it down to 3.6 and see what happens to that wonderful score of yours.

Well... ATI proved that they can do it. Nvidia still needs to do that.

It's not a blatant assumption, it's a prediction based upon sound reasoning. I have yet to see you offer anything to contradict any such argument I've made. Take, for example, your comment about the heat of the 3870X2s not being a factor in their performance over two 3870s. You are forgetting that ATI managed to put their dual-GPU solution onto one PCB, whereas there will be two PCBs heating up whatever cooler Nvidia managed to fit between them. Twice as many components, and a smaller space with which to have any cooling solution. You will therefore have less fin surface area for air-cooling to take effect on the Nvidia card.

As for motherboards not being able to hack it, that is definitely something to consider. If Nvidia's dual-GPU solution requires PCI-E 2.0 to be used at its full potential, then people will be forced to upgrade in order to get their money's worth. (Speaking of which, is this card even PCI-E 2.0 compatible?) This is something that had/has to be considered for any 3870X2 user as well, so don't take it personally that I bring it up with the 9800GX2. I was merely making the point that if it were to be as good as you hope, it would require PCI-E 2.0 to reach its full potential.

I have no evidence and neither do you, hence why it can't be assumed that it'll suck. Thats why I said from the very beginning, as long as it can perform just the same as two seperate cards, it will be an awesome card considering you can then put two of them together.

I don't know why everyone is bugging about it being two PCB's, considering PCB's can be used to dissipate heat, like ASUS "stackcool" or whatever the term is, so two PCB's could have an advantage.

Also, since G92 is PCI 2.0, this will definately have to be.
