^ I was trying to say that, without actually saying that.

You couldn't just leave it for Turtile to brag about, or admit to deception could you? :p

Those aren't SLI cards. I'm not even sure that they're PCIe: nVidia's spec clearly calls for the SLI connector (which sits just behind the I/O shield) on all SLI-capable cards. It's quite obvious once you know what it looks like (rather like a sunken, inverted PCIe x1 connector on the top of the card). That's not to say that these aren't prototypes and that a finished version won't feature SLI bridge connectors... but these ones haven't got them (perhaps nVidia hasn't built an SLI reference board yet?)

At any rate, I wouldn't put a dual-core card past anyone. But I'd rather expect that they'd use a single-heatsink solution rather than two discretely-placed cores.

FWIW, ATI is working on an SLI-like implementation.

its not confirmed that the asus cards work in sli, only that 2 work together in single mode, meaning its the percformance of 1 card but with 4 displays possible thoese white connectors on the top edge may do something tho the cards might also work in the via dual gfx thing that doesnt need a bridge or in DXG available on DFI nforce 4 mobos

I am soon going to have a system build with that new type of hardware: PCI-E motherboard with dual PCI-E 6600 GTs.

one 6800gt is faster, better yet a x800xl for cheaper

Only by the numbers. A Dual 6600GT has the potential to be the best card of the next year! Especially if it comes with SLI, and games actually start taking full advantage of SLI.
