Im sure they will get the problems ironed out, I cant imagine that once theyve gotten 2x gpus on a PCB working that it would be much work to use the same principles for 2x2 GPU/PCB. Should be neat to see some benchmarks but that things gotta cost a TON when it does finally release.

It's still a much better way to start rumours than a set of fake 3DMark benches

Obvious April fools. Plus the heat from that thing you might as well have the heatsink take up 4 slots

Yeah that was not bad, but when I saw the 4 GPUs in a two slot design, I LOL'd. There would be no way possible any one could achieve that without using phase change to keep the temps low.

A decent custom water block and water cooling could keep that thing cool... I wouldnt doubt Nvidia is cooking something like this up behind the scenes eventually, its the same idea as the old quad SLI cards they had from 2006 only on 2 PCBs instead of 4.
