Agreed Mate.
And if we're lucky they will put a very good Cooler on it and make it a real Folders Delight.

I'm game for a second run of GX2's.

Considering developments costs, custom component costs and production costs of a limited run product, I HIGHLY doubt this will be under $300.

I'd say there's about a snowball's chance in hell that this card will be anywhere near $200.

You don't need SLI to fold on multiple cards in the same system.

Well that certainly is an interesting card. and I would of bought into that, mm I don't know.... 7-8 months ago? Unless its going to out perform anything the card is based on for roughly the same price or lower. I see no reason to develop this card, especialy withought SLI capability.

regardless if it being a folders delight which it very well may be. by the time it comes out it would be cheaper to just by 2 previously enjoyed gts 250s cheaper than one of those.
It is like previously said, pretty much a 9800gx2 which may still perform okish for the time being.
But it's still just another dx10 card and even though dx11 isnt big yet your forced to make a "difficult decision" (not difficult i think )

go broke buying this with no sli or go broke buying nvidia's new line if cards whenever they come out which has sli..(correct)?
i duno about you but i would go with a new gen.
or in my case, im happy with ati atm and am just sticking to cheaper nv folding cards

i dont know all that much about nvidia but do they have quad sli?
if not then thats why the gts250x2... doesnt have a bridge... correct?

nVidia does indeed have quad-SLI.

Looks great in concept, but if it's not really cheap, it won't be very desirable to the folding community.

I'd love to see someone create a really cheap dual GTS250 card with very little GDDR3. 128MB per core should be plenty for folding purposes I'd think - and it'd keep the card's price very reasonable.
