 These cards do look impressive, kinda remind me of the GeForce 8800 Ultra cards. If they perfrom as good as they look, that would be awesome (is it just me ore does the cooling sleeve look like the top of a V6). But knowing the GPU market, ATI will most likely respond with a faster card (or at least the distributors will). Also,  a Radeon 5870 series X2 card on the way, the GPU market will yet again most likely turn into a battlefield (of GPU releases).

Why would you want one of these other than to set a new benchmark record.  With $300 you can get 2 4870s put them in crossfire and play every game available at maxed out settings.   Asus doesn't need to produce a ton of these because there is really no real neason to buy them because you won't see a performance difference.

OK why don't you go and lay down and recover from your high and sober up some and then come back and post something that is actually sane and logical.

Two GTX285s in SLI are faster than Two 4870's in crossfire. That's 2processors that are faster than 4processors.

And just because you don't need or want the fastest available hardware out there does not mean everyone else is crazy for wanting the highest end available. Price be damned.

I'm sorry your just not going to win this one and I'm not alone and I have alot of people here that will back up my statement.

I think my air conditioner might use less power than those. If I did get them I think I'd have to buy another air conditioner just to keep'em cool

Damn it. Only 1000? All the magazines and hardware websites are going to buy them up befor any reach store shelves. This sucks. We need to protest at the ASUS headquartars until they relent and produce at least 100,000 units. 100,000 units would still be hard to get but much easier than just 1000. That's retarded. I want one and I know that there is going to be no chance at all of getting one if there are only going to be 1000.

Screw 100,000 units... I say we protest to make it a constant product :)

are those things actually running as that picture was taken?  Just curious, because there is no SLI bridge across them.  I know you can run them without it, but why would you want to?

sli is pointless if you want to run multiple monitors. i know some people that will argue an sli bridge with multiple monitors slows down performance a little. idk, don't agree but still.

it's the invisable SLi bridge from mars

Wow, those look as sweet as the specs read.  Maybe this will be the reason I finally fork over the money and build me an i7 machine.  God I love gadget pr0n.

I'd recently bought an XFX 9600GT from Newegg for 60 bucks, but I'd trade it for one of these :x anyone else have good experiences with the 9600's?

Well if Denis63 ever views these comments I'm sure he will have a word or 2 to say about it, he owns one and loves it.

You're damn right Defiant!

i have an eVGA 9600GT OC 512. Its rather good and does everything i ask of it. recently though i've been playing Fallout3 and its been lacking there, but it has a Zalman VF1000 heatsync on it and when it starts to cough, i overclock it :P. 775mhz (over a 675 stock) core clock and the temp dosn't even go up a degree (according to aVGA precision). I payed 180 for it almost a year ago now...

Ill take 2 of them, preferably number 1 and 2 ;P

 

I can only imagine how hot this gets and how much power it will use, not to mention the price!! 

avatar

Devo85x

lol :) just liquid cool it, as for the numbers 1 and 2, imagine the resell price of those! give me 1-4 and ill sell 1 and 2 :)

avatar

Defiant

Gives me an excuse to buy the corsair hx1000 to power them (I've been looking for a reason to get it too).
