I'd rather they just cool all the cores with water, instead of using heatpipes and water cooling.

they should stop a 2 GPU per card, crossfire and sli can't handle more than 4 gpu...... so you can't sli or crossfire 2x3 gpu

When I first saw these dual GPU graphic cards, my first question was, how do you cool the thing?

Let alone water cool.

Now, I sure hope they figure out some better ideas because those heat pipes are REALLY going to bottleneck this solution. .

what the heck...

now they will put 4 gpu per card then "Crossfire xtreme" or "sli xtreme" (new technology) it and you will be able to have 16 GPU!

Instead of taking the time to cram more middle-range GPU's on to one card..... why don't they just use those resources to make a BETTER GPU.

Multi-GPU cards have almost always been flops. They usually sell very poorly compared to similar performing single GPU cards. The idea just seems like wasted effort, as the cost effectiveness just isn't superb. Do you know anyone on this forum with a 7950GX2? A Sapphire X1950Pro Dual? A Gigabyte 3D1? Maybe a few, but I haven't seen any myself. There are a handful people with 3870x2's, to be fair.

My advice: stop trying to cram more existing stuff onto a single board. More isn't always better. Better is better. Put that effort towards better tech, for your own sakes.

That's just my 2 cents.

PS: I realize that some of this multi-GPU card production is actually the result of a distributor modifying the original reference design (and may have little to do with the original designers in some cases). If that's the case, I still say there are better ways to use your resources.
