  • Tri-slot Radeon HD 4870 X2

    Figured some of you would find this interesting/funny.
    It is a Tri-slot video card, making it pretty much the big birtha of current cards.

    It does it's job keeping the card cool though

      wow, I can't wait for a quad slot card that is going to need a support beam in the middle of the case. that's just funny.

        If i were to stick that in my current mobo, it would press against the HDD and take up a PCI and PCI-E slot as well.

          Screw tri and quad slots, lets go straight to 10 slot cards. That's all the cooling you'll need right there, enough to not need any other fans blowing out of the case lol.

          Wonder what happens if you bump the case too many times with that thing not properly secured in the expansion slots, busted mobo anyone?

            That thing needs liquid cooling blocks.

                  spulat beat me to it, external graphics card... as big as your tower, also doubles as a space heater, sounds like a furnace, requires a 30 amp circuit and the lights in the whole city dim when it turns on


                  they should code name this thing BIG BERTHA

                    Wasn't Nvidia talking about external graphics solutions about this time last year? I'm guessing they're either working on it, or its like way on the back burner.

                      They're working on a solution for that sort of thing, yes, aimed at laptops.
