I think they are just gearing up for a GX2.

No matter how the clock that it won't beat the HD4870X2 without re-working the chip IMO.

One such example would be the 9800GTX+, the HD4850 is still the better buy.

I dunno, I`d still take a GTX280 over a HD4870X2, the same as I would a HD4870 over the x2.

GX2 compared to HDx2 I`d be more interested in.

Agreed. I'd go for the single GPU cards anyday. I never really got the whole multi GPU thing...

That's like saying you never got the whole multi CPU thing.... Faster processing.

It's pointless, if they don't work together properly.

The drivers were always problematic, it's only in the last year or so they've got more stable. But still 2 GPUs IMO should indicate x2 of the performance of a single - It doesn't but it's still twice the price...

The latest X2s cores appears to work pretty well with each other. Before getting 2 x the performance can even be close the cards would need to be able to share their memory and even then it still wouldn't be twice the performance. X2 is a lil less than twice the price.

We hear this tho, then something like Grid comes out (relation to title thread on oc3d that I haven`t read as it doesn`t wholey interest me, so I could be way off) and it`s performance is lacking ?

But it spanks a 9800 @ Crysis or UT3 or 3dmark or whatever..

See I saw that thread too and was a lil confuzzled by it.

Every review I've seen has shown pretty immense GRID performance including the OC3D review.

I even asked Jim what it was actually like using the card. A review is all well and good but I wanted to know the general feel of the thing. If there were any glitches and stuff like that. He said it was really really good. I think his exact words were that he'd "give his left testicle to keep the card" (maybe right??).

Don't get me wrong.. I'm all for single core solutions and if the 280 was a little closer I'd probably plump for it due to just being easier and more stable but fact is it gets mullered. My plan was to wait for the GT200b and see how it does, but now it would mean waiting even longer.
