Dual GPU Graphics Cards make an appearance
Quite a few companies such as ASUS and GeCube are showing off some Dual GPU graphics cards this year at Computex.
First up our friends at GeCube were showing off their dual Radeon X1600XT graphics card which comes with 512MB DDR-3 memory onboard - and doesn't take up two slots inside your case. Not only does the card with HDTV output but also four DVI ports. GeCube are also claiming the card is Crossfire ready meaning if you have the money to buy two of these cards (they shouldn't be too expensive), you'll technically be running Quad Crossfire or a total of four GPU.
GeCube were not entirely sure when the card would be shipping apart from saying it would be ready "soon".
Next up ASUS makes another appearance in our coverage with a look at their dual X1600XT.
ASUS take a slightly different approach to their card than GeCube. For instance, ASUS supply a separate power supply for the card which they claim improves stability. Instead of providing quad DVI ports like GeCube, ASUS just provide two VGA and two DVI.
Also something to take notice of is the fact that the ASUS card takes up two slots whereas the GeCube card only uses one.
