Possible Dual-GPU Nvidia GTX 595 Spied? #nvidia


Nvidia isn’t a stranger to dual-GPU cards. Some of the more recent ones include the GTX 295 and 9800 GX2 which in their own right, were quite powerful as well as thirsty for power. With the GF100 release, it looked like dual-GPU solutions from Nvidia weren’t going to be possible due to the architectures extreme heat outputs and power consumption being the limiting factors. However, the newer GF104 and GF110 architecture refreshes have ratcheted down power consumption and heat considerably, once again making a dual-GPU/single PCB layout a possibility.

According to TechPowerUP, a Chinese news source has images of a claimed Nvidia GTX 595 — a true dual GPU/single PCB graphics card. Some interesting things worth pointing out include the 3x-DVI connectors which mean 3D Surround will be possible. Currently, Nvidia has yet to find a way to make 3+ monitor setups possible from a single card. Though considering this is really two cards in one, it should be a shoe in regardless.

Memory comes in at 3GB (1.5GB per card) and power is delivered via two 8-pin connectors. Finally, the reported GTX 595 will be dual-SLI capable.

Overall it looks mighty interesting. What do you think: $699 sound about right?
