well, the 512 only helps for AA and antroscopic

If they Nvidia made a quad SLI, and you put 4 of those 7800 GTX 512 MB cards in here, then I think that would annihilate the competition.

Then they might as well start making people pay to view the benchmarks, or have magazines ramp up the prices, because those cards and motherboards they use every month do not come cheap.

A waste of money and space. You won't even use the full power. Just pointless. Gigabyte made that Quad Royal motherboard just for bragging rights.

When their 256MB version does come out, now we're playing on even grounds. Watch nvidia get right back where they belong. In first place...
512mb doesn't help when it comes to the speed...it definately helps with the eye-candy though.

The 256mb versions will still be awesome...just because they have 16 pixel pipelines and 8 vertex shaders, it doesn't mean it'll get owned. ATI cards have always been known to do more per clock. The R520's architecture is different. Everything runs really differently.
