I was so happy to see that title at first, but then I saw that it won't be available till 2006, bah.

Now I have to decide if I want to get a 7800gtx now, or wait 2 months and get the x1800xt.

Maybe I should just take the savings and get the 7800gtx. It's still a good card right? lol I don't know, it just never seemed like that big of a leap in tech to me. Hence the reason I was waiting for Ati's card.

Get the GTX. It's cheaper, and it's just as powerful. The X1800XT is faster in benchmarks, but the GTX is just as fast in real-world gaming.

SLI on a single card? What is that, just two GPUs stuck on a single circuit board containing SLI logic, so an SLI enabled motherboard is not necessary? Does a single PCIx slot have enough bandwidth for a single-card solution to compete with two cards in dedicated PCIx slots?

If it's the Dual Sli cards they were talking about before, I think it would work. One pci-e slot at 16x instead of 8x times 2 with two cards. Wouldn't it be the same?

Although, they might be talking about what you were saying about the sli without a mobo that supports it, that's an interesting idea.

The G72, Could be a low/mid end card, 90mn chip Makes it lower power consumption or something right? so perfect for a low/mid range? i think its a tad too early for a new high end.

Is it supposed to be better than the 7800? Like the 7900? Or will it be like a 7600 or something?
