Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! The GX2 requires a true eight-pin power lead. What happens when you double up on them via SLI-on-a-card? Unfortunately, space around this eight-pin plug is tight. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.

Ebst Christmas from The Tech Report staff! Those who remember the disappointing performance scaling of Nvidia’s previous quad SLI solutionbased on the GeForce GX2will be relieved to hear that the GX2 should be free from the three-buffer limit that the combination of Windows XP and DirectX 9 imposed back then.

But that would be selling GX2 short, since one of the G92 chip’s stream processor SP clusters is disabled on the GT, reducing its shader and texture filtering power.
The Johnny-Cash-meets-Darth-Vader color scheme certainly works well for it. Customize The Bext Report Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing I said just last week that GPUs are breeding like rabbits, and here we have another example of multi-GPU multiplication.
The brand-spanking-new GeForce X2 combines a pair of G92 graphics processors onto one card for twice the goodness, like an incredibly geeky version of an old Double-Mint gum commercial.
Nvidia calls this port “bootable. Let’s have a look.

Such color schemes tend to go well with quirky personalities, and the GX2 isn’t without its own quirks. This port was concealed by a rubber stopper on this XFX card out of the box. Dell returns to the stock market after six years. Among them, as you can see, is the fact that its two DVI ports have opposite orientations, which may lead to some confusion as you fumble around behind a PC trying to connect your monitor s.
The GX2 requires a true eight-pin power lead. The lower blinkenlight turns green to indicate that all of the necessary power leads are connected to the GX2, while the upper one lights up blue to indicate which of the two GX2 cards in ahem a quad SLI setup owns the primary display port.
For those of you in Rio Linda, that adds up to 1GB of total graphics memory and a whole lotta bandwidth.
And before you even ask, let’s settle this right away: What happens when you double up on them via SLI-on-a-card? In this case, you’re paying a premium for the Gz2 obvious virtues, including its single PCIe x16 connection, dual-slot profile, quad SLI potential, and the happy possibility of getting SLI-class performance on a non-Nvidia chipset.
Steam names the best-selling games of That’s probably because it does. The folks on the green team tend to take the heavyweight performance crown rather seriously, and the GeForce GX2 looks primed to recapture the title.
This beast packs two full-on G92 graphics processors, each running at MHz with a MHz shader clock governing its stream processors.
As you can see in the picture above, a black plastic shroud envelops the entire GX2, as if it were a Steve Jobs-style black turtleneck. Extra exposure below the shroud, though, doesn’t seem to be part of the program.
A few holes in the shroud do expose bbest connectors, though. Price, certainly, should be no object for the typical quad SLI buyer.

Besg our PSU’s connector into the port took a little extra effort, and extracting it again took lots of extra effort. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.
