Looks cleaner than the Nvidia GX2 dual card, but its still a re-hash...

Yeah I see it. It seems like a better idea than the sandwich design Nvidia has, however, nVidia's method allows for more power conditioning components, as well as more RAM.

pricing should be interesting, if 2 3750's only run about $460, then this could be interestingly priced as it is cheaper to build 2gpu/1pcb than 2 seperate cards...
