GeCube gets their hands dirty with Dual GPU X1650XT

 

This week we were given an exclusive opportunity to visit the GeCube office here in Taipei and test out their unreleased, highly anticipated and upcoming Gemini 2 dual GPU Radeon X1650XT graphic card. In the CPU game, everyone is talking about Quad but in the VGA game, Dual cards are on the mind at the moment.

 

According to the product managers and marketing folks from GeCube who we talked with throughout our visit, the product is almost finished and will be ready and for sale early next year - that is, very early January, as long as everything goes to plan. That's good news as GeCube as well as Gigabyte and ASUS (and the former XGI and probably many others behind closed doors) have tried producing dual GPU graphics cards in the past but they didn't really turn out as planned.

 

As it turns out, it is quite difficult to engineer a dual GPU graphics card (no kidding!) and that is made evident by the fact that no company has been able to do it properly (and in supply quantity) in recent times with current Radeon or GeForce silicon.
