sli is good but some time dont effect some games
Aye, that's right, forgot about the upcoming refresh\rebranding cycle.
I dont think anyone would be too sad to see the 480 go, I'll probably sell mine with my water blocks as soon as the refresh is announced.
I like this. Hopefully it'll be dual slot, run within moderate temps (although I do have a Gigabyte 1GB GTX 460 and runs considerably warmer than my older Sapphire Vapor-X 5770), and be less expensive than buying two cards.
I'm not expecting the card to take the market by storm, but I'm sure there are plenty of people who could want/use something like a dual-gpu 460. In fact I was sad that the recent Radeon options remained the 4870x2 and the 5970, and for NVIDIA the 9800x2, 295 (which is just huge...).
Seems like an amazing idea but whats the point its not even nvidias top of the line or second tier cards. One high end card is always better if you can handle it vs 2 lower end cards since sli or crossfire is not always supported in games very well. you could pick up the soon to be 6970 for what this card will cost and get better minimum FPS and a better overall experience IMO.
Kind of reminds me of the ASUS Ares, and most of the other hybrid boards that ASUS does for their GPU. It'd be interesting to see how this performs though.
Like with the ARES, being ASUS's own version of the 5970, the performance was better on so many levels. Still, I start to wonder if this kind of thing will start to take place as mainstream in the future.
Like how different GPU manufacturers have like pre-oc versions w/ custom HSFs, I'd like to see more of these kinds instead... Then it'd make GPU selecting more of a thrill come an upgrade
But too bad I got my 5850 Recently. I love it and I shall not part with it :X
Dual Radeon 6870 > 460x2. The 460x2 would have to be dirt cheap.. $400 would be too much.
This is just plain sexy. I can imagine some serious Crysis 2 porn on this.
wow what short of pc do we need to use this card in full function? full speed.....
Great card, let see the price of it!
Dang... sometimes I think I should have waited before buying my 480. I still love its performance though D:
as Diablo III's release approaching (really!?) i need to get a new PC for it & other games, such cards looks interesting, but i'm sure the price tag would be a major problem & with limited specs, is it worth it?
i guess itll be a while before i upgrade from my 460, but damn, this is one sexy card.
This reminds me of the dual gpu GTX 470 nVidia showed ages ago. Whatever happened to that? What with the difference in power consumption, a dual 460 is a much better idea though.
Thank you for Information, as well as the other posters !
But I just realize that SLI had License.
Would like to see two of these in SLI. Probably you'll have to use liquid nitrogen to keep the system stable
I don't get the Olivia Munn thing--she's alright, I guess.
Well, if I've heard a comment like that in the past years...
It will definitely run Crysis 2 but may leave a financial crysis in my bank account.
Wow - I can't believe you called her just alright. She's... what comes after awesome?
