Kind of interesting, but I don't see much of a point in designing a new dual-GPU card using such an old architecture.

Yeah, but you can already get a 9800GX2 which produces almost as much, or a GTX295 that produces more. Unless this card ends up being dirt cheap in which case it could be an attractive solution, but I doubt it will be all that cheap since Galaxy will still have to recoup the costs of actually developing it.

If this card is sub-$200 this could be a great folding card IMO. Because of the G92b GPU's it will produce less heat and consume less power.
