Icon17 nVidia Geforce 7950 GX2 Video Card Launched - Benchmarks Inside

NVIDIA HAS BEEN TALKING publicly about Quad SLI for half a year now, and Quad SLI configs have been shipping for a few months in a select number of ultra-high-end PCs. Today, at long last, NVIDIA is unveiling a consumer version of its Quad SLI component card, the GeForce 7950 GX2. A single GX2 plugs into one PCI Express slot, but it actually has a pair of printed circuit boards, two GPUs, and two sets of memory chips onboard. By itself, the GeForce 7950 GX2 is an SLI setup on a stick, a dual-GPU powerhouse that fits into the same space as any other high-end graphics card with a dual-slot cooler. Slide two of these puppies into a system side by side, and you have the potential for Quad SLI--but not the reality, apparently, if you're just a lowly DIYer.

This card takes up no more space, draws no more power, and generates no more heat or noise than a Radeon X1900 XTX, but its performance is in another class altogether.

quite powerfull compared to other 'single' gpu systems, however people whbo wanna give 700 euro for a gpu, will probably own 7800 gtx of 7900 gtx or XF setups, so then it wouldn't be interesting.
but quad setups could prove astonishing.... if there is actually a 35-40% increase here

I wouldn't choose XFX for those cards, it seems RMA is really bad with XFX
