Big GPU's Are Set To Die

Apparently, according to our source the end of the big GPU is nigh. Is there some truth to the matter, or is this just a pipe dream for some? Feel free to comment below...

Sounds good to me!

Those 8800s are huge! And they look abit out..?

But yeah Smaller GPUs could be a bonus!

They started making one chip solutions with PCI cards and now they return to multiple chips, just like our old well-built ISA cards.

Hardware is also easier to hack and/or mod when you can access signals between different components

This sounds interesting, but it pretty much ends the unlocking of graphics cards. Also they are going to need some serious bandwidth between chips.

True this may all be junk, but if it is true the bad thing to is that the PCBs are going to be even bigger.
