it'd be great if there was really any need at all for sli anyway, like where are the new great games? Besides, who is going to spend 8k on a dell system that doesnt have dx10?

At the Consumer Electronics Show 2006 NVidia and Dell were showing a PC containing four Nvidia 7800 GPUs. It was dubbed the Quad SLI PC.

To pull this off, each GPU comes on its own card. Two cards are sandwiched together into a single module so they share a single PCI Express slot (an internal splitter in the module shuttles the PCI traffic to the two cards). Then the PC contained two of these modules for a total of four GPUs in a single machine.

These four GPUs were acting together; combining their horsepower so that the computer and game software thought it had a single graphics card of immense power. NVidia pegged the total horsepower at greater than 5 Teraflops, with a total of 2GB of RAM and 40 billion pixels per second.

Nvidia then demonstrated the computer’s abilities by running the game Fear full-screen on a Dell widescreen display. The display had 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. That's 4 million pixels -- about twice as many as an HDTV. Then they cranked up the anti-aliasing and filtering to the max and played the game at frame rates that looked completely fluid. It was an amazing demonstration of computing power.

Rather than give into the desire to spout off opinion I will look at the facts and await the actual silicon for testing purposes. The 7800 GTX 512 is able to do 250 or theoretical maximal 300 Gigaflops and if the claims of Nvidia that four of these GPU's in Quad SLI can do 5.2 Teraflops are true then I look forward to testing the 7900GTX Quad's in for my own personal results on my 40" Screen.

I will do so even if others believe that it would be stupid to do so as my bottom line is performance and I have been called many names in my life. Stupid has not been one of them though.

Ummm no. You could take the same system, take out two cards and watercool everything to out perform the system with 4 cards? No, you couldnt.

Why is it junk? Why would it run like crap? Have you used them personally? Please don't say something is junk and crap if it isn't even on the market yet.

What you guys have to remember is that 2 video cards are already majorly cpu bound. We just don't have enough cpu power to utilize all 4 cards. If you are gaming anywhere around 1600x1200, you will not see an increase with 4 cards over 2. The only reason I could see to buy a pair of these is for 1.) extreme overclocking 2.) running insanely high resolutions on very large screens.

Lol.... Could you imagine you powerbill from running this! Not only would it cost a lot to run the computer and computer (plus you cooling system), but then you need to have the A/C cranking to keep up with the heat your computer makes.
