Galaxy's Looks Back (Way Back) for New Dual-GPU Videocard

Paul Lilly

Videocard vendors loyal to the Nvidia camp must be getting bored waiting for Fermi to materialize, or at least Galaxy Tech is. According to EXPreview, the graphics card maker will soon tout the world's first "dual core" (should be 'dual-GPU') GTS250 videocard.

The upcoming card will feature two low-power edition G92 GPUs on a single board. Each one will come with 128 processing cores and 1GB of dedicated GDDR3 memory on a 256-bit memory bus. What it essentially boils down to is a rebadged 9800GX2, albeit on a single PCB.

So what's the upshot? Not much, really, EXPreview says the board will feature a 6-phase power supply design and high quality chokes. You can probably expect better temps and higher overclocking than what you'd get with a 9800GX2, and if priced right, it could be a decent card. But will anyone be willing to invest in a part that's a couple of generations behind the curve?
