Update 10/05/2006: We originally reported the GeForce 8800GTX and 8800GTS are 9" in length. The reference design for the 8800GTX is actually a little less than 11 inches. The GTX has two 6-pin power adaptors, the GTS has only one.

Mostly interstingly I ran into this:

More interesting is the rumoured but as yet unconfirmed Quantum Effects engine, which appears to be Nvidia's pitch for physics processing. Quantum Effects essentially leverages the G80 shaders' processing power for physics calculations, much as PureVideo uses today and tomorrow's GPU shaders for video processing. Quantum Effects will, we'd guess, tie in to Havok FX's physics API and to Microsoft's anticipated DirectX physics API.

Hmm... It looks like we might be seeing DX10 in time for Christmas after all...

It sure is a tad odd that we haven't seen any news about ATi DX10 cards. I wonder if AMD is actually going to continue to support ATi high-end chips.

GeForce 8800 cards in SLI mode will likely carry a power supply "recommendation" of 800W.

Woah.

Here's a supposed pic from Toms Hardware, I don't know if it's the real thing but either way that GPU is gigantic!
