Much as with CPUs, you couldn't simply continue to make them bigger and bigger, right? Therefore, this makes sense, and it was only a matter of time.

So 1 question. does this mean we will have to wait on games to take advantage of these multiple cores or does it work like SLI kinda does and makes the work load easier?
Yeah, I can't imagine what else it would do. Actually, I could see this as a way to enable the card to perhaps, sharpen the quality of the graphics.

Thanx Marco. You addressed exactly what I was asking about.

This is just my opinion but it would seem to me that a Multi Core GPU would be a more efficient solution to run Games like Crysis, instead of SLI or Crossfire.

I just want them to start making graphics processors like they make CPU's- direct connect to the MB. I think they could go much faster and run cooler if they were to do this.
