Yes.


Immediate buy if they get it to $500. $600 would be a maybe, but anything more and I'll get 2 470/570s. I have a 295 now. A dual GF104 is interesting, but that would only buy me 50% or so...not worth it. A plus would be LPCM via HDMI, which I don't have, now.


I like the dual GPU cards as I use my computer as a DVR and media server, too. 2 cards fills 4 slots, which isn't cool as I have a sound card and TV tuner, too. With 2 cards, my case would literally be stuffed to the gills as I have 6 hard drives in it, too (Lian Li PC65).


Also, looks to be a 384bit bus if there are 6 chips on the back per GPU, so this is not a GF104.

it will never be $500, this is going to be a $699-799 card for sure if indeed it is a dual GF104.

They could never sell a dual GF104 card for 699-799...a GF104 NOW is $200.


Plus, they did sell the 295 for $500, and the complexity of that card rivals a dual 110 card (as the die/package sizes are in the ballpark, and the 295 had a 2*448bit vs. 2*384bit), so you never know. If it IS $500-600, they won't be clocked at 580 speeds, though.

Pricing will be determined on how much AMD's 6970 dual will cost and what are the diff's in performance between the two. My off the cuff guess would be about $700 since a GTX580 goes for about $500.

Woops, I don't know why I put GF104, I meant GF110 my bad lol and "IT" will be $699-$799
I can see the dual 104 card going for $400-$450.
