Nvidia may have not officially announced their next top-of-the-line graphics card, but HardOCP has gotten its hands on some exclusive information and pictures of the upcoming GeForce 9800 GX2. According to the report, the card will be out in February or March this year and is supposed to be at least 30% faster than the 8800 Ultra, which it will be replacing.

The GeForce 9800 GX2 is basically two 8800 GPUs that have been die shrunk to 65nm and sandwiched together, with both GPUs running in SLI. The card will apparently offer a total of 256 stream processors, along with a total of 1GB of RAM. Nvidia will reportedly support Quad SLI on this card, which is essentially two 9800ís (four combined processors) running in a SLI configuration.

I wonder how many small nuclear power plant's I'll need to power and cool this one? The old 8800 had some ridiculous idle power needs, I suspect that to remain the same but I'd really appreciate it if someone told me different.
