The 7950 is a mixed blessing deal. My problem with it is 3 things:
1. Just one of these will consume 300watts under load. This means in SLI, 600watts will be consumed! Not practical.
2. Just one of these will consume some good chunk of PCIe bandwidth. Most of us have mobos that will splite the PCIe bus to x8 in SLI which will propose a problem for those that want to eventually SLI the 7950.
3. GPU and RAM have been downclocked, caused my limitations to technology and trying to keep the cooling soulutions to SLI reference. Would like to see this with AC adaters to plug into the product.
Its a great idea BUT there is very limited support for this particular product and is about 8 months ahead of its time. Well need to see PCIe mobos with dedicated x16 per slot in SLI and 1kw PSUs is mainstay before this product will see betters takes. This could explain why the 7950 is on par with $$ with the 7900gtx.
