Computex 2010: Dual GPU GTX 470 Videocard Spotted

It looks like it is going to be possible to incorporate dual GF100 GPUs on a single PCB. At least, that's what the folks over at Galaxy Tech are dreaming up and we got a glimpse of it during Computex 2010. With the heat output and power requirements of NVIDIA's GF100 graphics chip, a lot of us were skeptical there would ever be a dual GPU version of Fermi. Imagine our surprise when this thing came out of nowhere during our tour of Galaxy's booth.

The card we saw was home to a duo of GF100 GPUs sharing a single PCB, it measured approximately 12" long, and featured two 8-pin PCIe power connectors, and three dual link DVI ports. Unfortunately, lips were sealed on any more specifics as it's merely a prototype but it looks like the dual-GPU videocard crown could could belong to NVIDIA once again. 







 

We don't have any more specifics just yet, but will keep you posted if we find out more.

Where?! Picture?! Your post date is a year ahead btw..

That's because it wasn't supposed to be live yet. Where did you see this article first, forum or main site?

Impressive but I don't want to see the power consumption on this device even though I can only assume it's slightly underclocked!

I don't know. I'm amazed that they can fit 2 GTX470 GPU's on one card but what concerns me is the heat it'll produce and the power it'll consume. Also I'm wondering if it can do traditional Quad-SLI like the other Dual-GPU cards have done in the past.

Thats one monstrosity of a GF card!

an underclocked version of the crippled Fermi GPUs, why do I guess that the power consumption will be enormous yet unable to compete against a 5970?

For some reason I tend to agree. Bet that thing really puts off some heat.

Check the GF100 PCI Express switch chip in between the two big honkin GPUs. This card is no joke. Looks to be an NVIDIA reference design of some sort.

Yeah, but can you run two in SLI? ;-)

Three video outputs... I like!

So the TDP of a 470 is 215. The 2 8pin PCIe power connectors only deliver 375 tops. Is the rest coming from the PCIe bus or can we maybe expect some lower power Nvidia chips coming?

Just seems to be getting really close to the max power you could deliver to a single card.

I was excitedly waiting for the release of this Nvidia small room heater. I heard it is best to put it in a PC with really long cord's. This is because if you sit to close to your PC there have been some 2nd to 3rd degree burns. I also heard they will release a computing clothing line with Oakley (http://www.saferacer.com/oakley-carbon-x-underwear-long-sleeve-top.html?productid=468) that can also be used for top fuel drag racing.

Just found this EVGA GeForce GTX470 is good price on centralcomputer.
