Almost feels like they are deliberately gimping this build a bit like they were forced to with the 480 (albeit disabling shaders due to thermal problems which this card does not appear to have) so that the next gen card can use fairly similar architecture to achieve much better performance through simple upgrades (Assuming memory bus and buffer size will be improved) for the 780?
    ie. Fermi MkI (480) Fermi MkII (580)
    Kepler MkI (680) Kepler MkII (780?)
    It's easier to do that than create new architecture every generation.

    Yes the new GTX 680 is super fast but, its time to wait and re-think

    The 2nd model is on the way and is still a "Single GPU" with 4gb DDR5

    [EVGA] GTX 680 4GB FTW

    It seems dual GPU is supported in the x64 bit version, but only makes a difference on the nVidia cards
    in fact a single GTX 680 is just as good as crossfire 7970, but as a funny note, it seems that the AMD cards
    does not scale at all. So since I know WoW is a nVidia supported game, perhaps that x64 bit platform came in to support SLI ?
