Gigabyte GV-3D1-68GT actually on dual GF 6800GT

Despite some doubts Andrey Vorobiev, our 3D graphics editor, had about the possibility of hosting dual GeForce 6800GT GPUs on a single PCB, Gigabyte nevertheless released the GV-3D1-68GT graphics card based exactly on two NVIDIA´s 6800GT GPUs (that now belong to the past generation already).

The very thick cooling system, 512MB GDDR3, and a dual-DVI bracket, an addition to 2 x D-sub ports make the novelty stand out even further. Most likely, one can use all 4 ports at the same time, since the solution is a "single-PCB SLI", so to say. According to our tests, this configuration is a bit faster than a usual SLI.

To make this monster work stably, Gigabyte remade the power circuitry (to which the aforementioned doubts were related).

Well, since the new GeForce 7800 already offers more power, this novelty is more interesting as a demonstration of Gigabyte engineers´ abilities paving way for further evolution.
