  • Quad SLi next week

    The 7900GX2 will be out next week. Basically two 7900GTX on one board. The cost will be a whooping 1,000 USD and I doubt you will find it at that price.

    On a side note I find this the dumbest thing EVER. This is where even I draw the line on my computer hardware. (Unless I win the lottery. :icon_cool )

    Alienware also has a ALX system with Quad SLI, I configured one a couple of days ago that had 4 32 or 30 inch LCD screens with HDCP, a HDCP ready 32 inch TV and a projector and a few other things for about 31 grand.

      Ouch!
      People like to give me a hard time for the upgrades I do (going to install my newly arrived second BFG 7900GTX OC 512 tonight) but I don't think I'll be touching one of those.

      Interesting stuff going on in the vid card department these days.

        I cant quiet understand the need for so many Gfx cards..... a single 7900gtx is CPU limited...... "norm" SLI doesnt see much improvement AT ALL (unless you can find a 3000mhz A64) and quad is surely just a waste of bloody money!

          ^^^^tell me about it. I really hope ATI doesn't make something this stupid.

            they already have ;)

            well some companies have made samples of dual GPU cards, that will probably work in the RD580 Motherboard as 4 GPU's.......

              People drop $80,000 on a Dodge Viper that they'll never be able to use properly. I don't see the problem with spending $2500 on a gaming computer.

                ^^^^^I love the idea of Quad SLi. (Well Quadfire I prefer ATI cards. Mainly because I am a hardware nut at this point.) However it's just not worth it. Mainly because the PC market moves so fast. Hell these cards don't even support DirectX 10.

                Spending 2000 dollars on a pair of cards that won't be able to do Shader Model 4.0 doesn't seem smart.

                  the difference is, they can learn to... if a CPU limited gfx card gets 250fps, having 4 CPU limited graphics cards is going to get you...... 250fps.......hardly worth it

                  infact due to overheads they might even be slower!!!

                    Intel and AMD really need to get moving on processor development. Hopefully things will improve though. Especailly now that Intel sees AMD as a viable threat.

                      I'll admit it sounds interesting because I'm learning about all this new hardware stuff, but I think it's a waste of $$ except for bragging rights. I'm running 7800gt's x2 and that's about where I draw the line. I wouldn't even spring for gtx at the time because I just didn't think it was worth it.

                        Yeah, but this is more like buying racing tires for your Pinto... Sure, they're certainly better than a cheap set of tires, but a Pinto just can't use high end tires to the best of their ability.

                        Likewise, putting uber-vidcards in your system will certainly be better than onboard video, but until other bottlenecks are eliminated, you're just not going to be able to use them for much more than what a good quality single graphics card can handle...

                          I go one farther and don't even bother with SLI or Crossfire period. One 7800GT is expensive enough :).

                              If you have the money, why not? It's an option that's all.

                              And for those people running the new Dell 30" it may be a viable, although expensive, option.

                              You will see this picked up in the workstation market heavily though.
