looks like a workstation card... but the question is, how many n00bs will buy 2 and put them in crossfire?

ya exactly, that FireGL honestly probably wouldnt play games very well, they are made for 3drendering which is nothing close to the fast intense gameplay that games offer, it might play games decent, but they aren't made for gaming...

I remember seeing this card a while back, or at least something similar. It is a high-end workstation card, meant for 3D design, like for video game creation and stuff..

Not recommended for gaming, but it would definitely tear holes in todays modern games. 2gb VRAM, OH BABY!!! Imagine 2 in cross-fire mode... :O
