Either that is one BIG card or that is one SMALL man!

Here's a shot of the core, probably a GTS since it has one power adapter.

Also, my work on getting a core size.

From the same site.

My guess is the second core is where the extra memory and bus width goes. Which leaves the core 512MB, 256bit.

They both look as ugly as each other, too.

Nice specs, but that card is hella ugly. =(

HS! That is one seriously long card! I guess it must be designed for a motherboard that's mounted on the bottom of a vertical/tower case (meaning the motherboard would have to be very small). And 42mm core FTW! Also, there's another smaller core on the one in Pitch's image (look to the left of the large core).

EDIT: Oh yeah, 2 SLI connectors as well!

The pair of sli connectors is because they've copied how crossfire works. It allows the cards to read and write to each other simultaniously one connector sends data one way, the other connector the opposite instead of the shared bus approach.

and yes its a big card, rumour has it the GTX given a Core 2 Quad hits 12k in 3dmark 06. Thats nearly twice as many as a stock x1900xt. It does apparently scale with cpu though with a C2D scoring ~11k and an FX62 hitting just over 10k for a single gpu!

Maybe about £600 ($1200 approx), and the current high-end (7950GX2's amd GT's) will become the low end. It happens every time there's a major new series in the market.

Bit different though once DX10 games start coming out. They no longer become low end, they become entirely obselete.

Exactly, i sure hope they release some cheap cards that will support DX10. I'm guessing that most games will still have a DX9 mode until the majority of people have upgraded. If they don't, it's either going to be very bad for the developers, and bad for the GPU manufacturers, or very good for the developers and very good for the GPU manufacturers.

When Crytek announced that the new 8800's won't be able to fully support DX10 mode of Crysis, i was quiet shocked because these cards are supposed to be new benchmark setters, and if you look at the spec of them (1.5Ghz core for example), something doesn't seem right. But even i know that it's not how powerful the card is, it's how well and fast it can handle the DX10 instructions.

Prices are $650 for 8800GTX or $449 for 8800GTS.

That's because the card is not a true "unified" tech.

OK, so get ready to buy a separate tower case for this thing, also to hold the 2 or 3 PSU's it will no doubt require.

So apparently these things are true unified shader technology?

The initial reviews seem quite promising.

Card does look good...I'm a bit concerned over the 32 pixel granularity(or sometimes 16!?!), which, if i got things right, means that even though this is a "unified" tech, it means that you cannot simply assign say 5 shaders for geometry shaders, for example, and the rest for pixel shaders.

there seems to be certain situations where Crossfire will beat these cards...which is quite fine...the 8800 is meant for Dx10, but has stellar DX9 performance, with far lower power consumption that what ATI currently has to offer...

But, no real DX10 titles or anything as of yet...not even Vista...so this card seems a bit premature, and a desperate move from nVidia in order to gain back some market share while ATI's busy folding away...

I wonder what nVidia's got planned for the R600 debut, this spring...altohugh I'll probably pick up at least the 680i and a 8800. I can't help but wonder how short-lived this card may be...90nm tech is not new @ all, adn this core may be far better @ the 80nm node.
