They probably will call it the 280GX2.

And why wouldn't you pick an 4870 which is cheaper and better?

Don't forget the 2Jigawatt PSU to run that beast.

wow, no offense but u say some serious BS. where in the hell have u ever seen a HD 4870 out perform a GTX 280 in at least 20% of the games out htere. answer never.

don't get me wrong the HD 4870 is a great card.

now how do u thk its even possible for them to make a GTX280GX2 as big as it is and when the chip is about 2.1x of the HD 4870.
http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=581&type=expert
GTX 280= 576 mm^2
HD 4870= 260 mm^2

not too mention the power requirements, there wouldn't be enough room on even a 12" PCB with 2 of those chips. even if they did do a die shrink to 55nm the chips would still be larger than any we've ever seen, besides the current 65nm. u just say a lot of things that aren't logical no offense, and it seems u don't research before u post either
