Damn it's impossible, technology wants to go to quick, 4 GPUs, who has the money to afford this? You cannot be "ahead" of technology for a month that already some new thing is out. I have my single Nvidia Geforce 7800 GTX and I'm happy with it. I'm almost sure that running 4 GPUs is maybe good, but is going to be incompatible with some drivers, is going to bring new issues, it's gonna push the case temperature way up, 1000W power supply, some games are going to be incompatible......... What more?

Basically (i think) it's 2 6600 gpus on 1 board. Just like asus's dual 6800.

just buy a 7800GT, it will beat 4 of those cards together, with 1/4th the heat and hassle

Couple questions for you, since you've obviously read up on this more than I have. How can 2 gpus on 1 video card sharing the same memory be faster than 2 seperate cards with seperate memory? Also, how is it advantageous for both gpus to be sharing the single slot's bandwidth? Do you have any info supporting your claim that this is faster than SLI?

Well, it has twice the RAM and twice the memory bus as a normal 6600 GT, so that answers your memory question. Secondly, it is using 1 PCI-E 16x slot, ware as 2 cards in SLI are each useing a 8x PCI-E slot, so it has the same amout of bandwidth avalible. It should be faster then two cards in SLI because it does not have to worry about transfering data between the two cards.

first of all thats the GV-3D1-XL and it uses two 6600(not GT!) GPUs (256MB)...
the GV-3D1 is using two 6600GT GPUs (256MB)...
and the GV-3D1-68GT is using two 6800GT GPUs (512MB)
(GIGABYTE is sexy)
to use this cards you need to activate SLi mode...
Asus made two dual GPU cards! one with dual 6800GT (512MB) and one with dual 7800GT (512MB)!
Leadtek made one card with dual 6600 (256MB)...
and Gainward made one card with dual 6800GT (512MB) and one with dual 6800Ultra (512MB) but the most powerful is the MSI one... Dual 6800Ultra (1,024MB)!!!

NOTE!: this cards are using two GPUs on one slot! each get a x8 data transfer! (in all the new SLi mobos each card gets x16!) so... normal SLi is just much better...(FASTER!) but it is a nice idea... and... using Quad SLi tech you can use two of those cards!

You're assuming that SLI bandwidth is limited to 8X and that's not always true. Also, 2 gpus sharing the same memory has limitations in itself. If you look at dual cpu motherboard setups, you'll see that each cpu has it's own memory. There's a reasoning for this.
