Interesting but where did the R590 come from? Im guessing they meant R580.

No surprise here. ATI really needs to be the first to implement a big tech like this. They are stuck in second, playing copycat to nvidia. It's gotta hurt their market share. Oh well, Maybe they'll be the first to hit OctaCrossfire.

I dont believe ATI is going to have the footprint that Nvidia's solution does. There are essentially FOUR CARDS in Nvidias quad solution whereas it seems like ATI is trying to cram it all on one pcb.

I hope this is the case as with quad SLI there usually isn't room for any PCI devices, major "d'oh" on Nvidias part.

Nvidias quad solution is great, and performs wonderfully but I dont think its the most polished that quad solutions can be. For one, it still uses a bridge and seems like it is just a daughter card with its own SLI bridge between the two. Also, the space and power requirements make is less than practical (if we can even talk about practical at such an elite enthusiast product).

I am just interested to see what ATI comes back with, thats pretty much it.

Actually, nVidia's Quad SLi has 2 PCBs, killnine. Each with 512mb and 2 slightly toned-down 7900GT cores.

That's not the official Quad SLI. That's 4 cards on the Gigabyte Quad Royale, which unfortunently never had driver support from nVidia.
