Not remotely overkill if one has working with a 500GB GIS dataset, or a 100K wide
sat image (IDEX imaging), or a CT/MRI volume set, or any number of very complex
applications that gobble huge amounts of RAM.

What I'd like to see is a pro GPU option that permits scalable memory. Comes
with 6GB default, scale to 600 or whatever.

Ian.

How is the gaming performance?

also, if it is using 2 GPU's it looks like the heatsinks are not shared. What will this do for the cooling if the cards are sharing a single airflow channel? it seems to be designed for airflow to enter into the back of the card which means that the first GPU, will preheat the air for the second GPU and cause higher temperatures or worst, cause throttling and inability to overclock.

@razor512: It looks like they're trying to adjust for hot air from the first GPU by changing the fin density (fewer fins on the first GPU and more fins on the second [last in air flow] GPU).

Splendid

Not quite the longest, the recorder holder still goes to this. :p

You forget where you are? People here have no clue what professionals do with computers.

And to those wondering about gaming performance, it will be abysmal compared to the 290x. Just not what it was designed for.

I was joking, you people are way too serious. Have some fun or you'll burn-out.
