Gigabyte to launch third dual-GPU graphics card

By Derek Sooman on
Gigabyte has produced another dual-GPU graphics card. Game performance addicts can now get their fix with the GV-3D1-68GT, the third such dual card from Gigabyte. The GV-3D1-68GT builds on NVIDIA SLI technology, and will amalgamate GeForce 6800 GT graphics chips. The integrated GDDR3 memory has been doubled to 512 MByte, and the card has seemingly scored 20,400 points in 3DMark 03 and about 9500 points in 3DMark 05.

Sources from Gigabyte claim that the new card will be the best performing single-board graphics systems - at least when current scoreboards are considered.

Availability of the card is expected for the end of July or beginning of August of this year. There were no details on pricing of the card, but sources said that the GV-3D1-68G will cost about 10 to 15 percent less than two 6800 GT cards in a package. Current 6800 GT's fetch about $400 in stores, so we would take a guess that Gigabyte will aim at a price tag of about $680 to $700.
