With the official introduction this week of the hot ATI HD 5970 video card with dual GPUs, we all knew that NVIDIA would be forced to answer in the continuing war for the high-end graphics crown. I expected NVIDIA to unveil its own dual GPU card soon, but it seems that Big Green may instead be loosening up a bit and allowing its card partners to get jiggy with new designs.
Galaxy is hard at work in a new dual GPU video card that will reportedly cram two of the potent GTX 285 GPUs onto one PCB. The downside to the impressive sounding video card is that it will be in very limited quantities and the price is rumored to be at about $1000. You could almost buy two of those HD 5970 cards for that much loot.
At this point, the cards only exist as CAD drawings and it appears that the drawings show each GPU getting its own fan and cooler. The card is said to be hitting market before Christmas, which is only a month or so away now.
