Sapphire Confirms Dual-GPU Graphics Card
Sapphire Technology, the world’s largest producer of ATI Radeon-based graphics cards, unveiled at Consumer Electronics Show the industry’s first dual-chip graphics card based on the Radeon X1950 Pro graphics processing units (GPUs). The novelty may offer pretty high performance, however, due to lack of DirectX 10 support, its market prospects are uncertain.
As revealed earlier, Sapphire’s Radeon X1950 Pro Dual is a bulky graphics card that carries two Radeon X1950 Pro GPUs that work in CrossFire mode, 1GB of GDDR3 memory and a bridge chip. The board has two power connectors and may not fit into typical computer cases, but require large, enthusiast-oriented, chassis. Sapphire also confirmed that in future it will be possible to make two dual-chip graphics boards work together, thus providing 4-way multi-GPU performance.

the only way this product will ever be successful is if the price of two cards is about ~75% MAX of two individual X1950 Pro cards; if it carries the same price-tag as two separate cards, then there is absolutely no reason for getting this monster of a card; sure you can go 4-WAY GPU for €800, which will be most likely more expensive than the new R600, which will be faster than those 4xX1950Pro cards...
