NVIDIA Launch New King Of The Hill: 7950 GX2 Graphics Card

| Video Cards News | Posted: Jun 6, 2006 10:03 am

Timed deliberately just before the doors open to one of the largest yearly IT shows (that of Computex in Taipei), NVIDIA make their presence known at the event with a bang, as today marks the launch of the most extreme GPU solution for the desktop market yet, say hello to their killer 7950 GX2.

 

 

This card is basically a couple of G71 (7900 series) cards stuck together, you've got two GPUs and 2x512MBs of memory as well as a couple of low-profile coolers (taking up two case slots), however only one PCIe slot is needed to get this mighty serious piece of hardware crankin'. Take two of these puppys, and whack them into SLI? Easy "Quad-GPU" powah!

 

Being launch day, hardware sites galore are naturally firing up their take on this new weapon from the giant graphics maker, as sourced via the linkies below (with more to be added as they surface throughout the next 24 hrs).
