And it'll be a foot long and downclocked to hell to conform to power requirements. You'll end up with a $700-800 card that's something like half again as fast as a GTX 680, and still slightly outperforms the 685 when it comes out. Nvidia will make a dual card in response, to launch in August or September with two GK104 chips to take back the performance crown, and six months after that AMD will launch the first 8xxx series cards, restarting the cycle. Meanwhile, every one of these cards becomes more and more pointless until the consoles finally get upgraded in 2-4 years. This is nothing new.

How much power do people need?

Hell, 2 of the overclocked 7970's could deal with Battlefield 3 in eyefinity, what more do you want?

Wonder what the price will be for this thing......$900-999? OUCH if it is, maybe $800 OK, but DAMN that is still a lot of money for just a video card no matter how you slice it, no matter how sweet it is.
