Whatever. Quad SLI needs to mature, it still suffers driver problems. Becides, you still need a SLI motherboard to use just one 7950 GX2 because both GPU's are still in SLI mode. Also, nVIDIA is only doing one 7950 GX2 at launch, then allowing Quad SLI later.

I would rather wait for ATI's R600 core. It'll be the fastest DirectX 9 card in the world and it'll have support for DirectX 10. With 64 Unified Shader Processors and 16 texture units, it'll be a force to be reckoned with. Keep in mind that these are unified shader processors, not the traditional independent shaders. It's basically the Xbox 360's Xenos GPU but on steroids. It's guaranteed to have over 650mhz in core clock speed and it'll implement high-speed GDDR4. Now that's an nVIDIA anything killer in one package. Imagine if you CrossFire two of those beasts.

It's incredible just looking at that chart. The comparison of the 7900 GTX to the 7950 GX2. Improvements on every game and benchmarks.

Well the 7950 GX2 does have two cores in one package. And nVIDIA labeled it wrong. It's not really the fastest SINGLE card in the world, probably the fastest dual-board package in the world, but keep in mind it's two cards linked to one PCI-E bus.

Pretty much. It's really two slightly downclocked 7900 GTX cores put onto two PCBs and linked together to run as one card.

The R600 is supposed to come out near the end of the year, maybe earlier. That's my guess.
