Nobody's likely to have owned one, it's a brand new product. It will probably be subject to any issues associated with SLI, but it's much less of an issue with Nvidia than ATI.

Hmm it appears the gtx 460 was released in the 2 win as well? Or are these just being released now along side the 560ti 2win?

Anyways, after reading a bit more, and not being able to quad sli the 560ti 2win, I think I am more leaning towards the 580. This way I can either SLI down the road if I decide to keep it and I can most likely easily sell it when the new series comes out.

Another question this brings up. Will a corsair AX750 be enough for 2 580's? Or will I need to jump up to an 850?

Also is it true the next generation of cards will use less power?

Ok I am really starting to lean towards the 560ti 2win or the 580 1.5gb.

Anyone ever had any of the 2win models in the past?

Since it is a dual gpu does that mean I can have the potential issues with crossfire/sli?
IIRC Sagath was getting one shipped to him should have it by nextweek, might want to drop him a PM and ask what his thoughts are.
Or any specific questions.

Good idea Supergrover. I assume that is the lucky fella that snagged the excellent deal on the card that was used for review?

Yes I believe he did.

Honestly from my understanding with SKY (I wanted the card so I asked LOTS of questions) he was very impressed, and that says a lot since he is very hard to impress.

Might be a good investment.
And due to its unique nature will probably hold its resale value.
