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.
