It looks like Gigabyte are going to follow the trend that has been set by other computer case manufacturers by making a new style of case which will include a full watercooling system. I guess this is excellent news for beginners as it provides a way of having a watercooling system without all the modding and hassle.

Mr. Smith
Take a look at this preview picture in the news - dual GPU/slot offering based on 2600 XT architecture

May be dumb of me to ask this, but will the X2600's be faster than the 8600's? If anyone knows that is. Me = to lazy to google.

First off, how much, second off, how much PSU power, 3rd off how much will it increase performance wise to have a second chip?

About 120w power draw.

I guess I never much understood this dual gpu / single PCB design, here's why...

Either

A) It performs close to a 2900XT (probably still less than a 2900) yet will cost MORE than a 2900XT. Why would you spend more money on something that doesn't perform as well as it's bigger brother?

or

B) It does outperform a 2900XT (probably by a realllllly small margin), in which case why didn't they make a dual 2900XT card for SERIOUS horsepower? Probably still costs more than a 2900XT.

Now, if it just underperforms a 2900 series card and actually costs less as well I can see it. But I just have a hard time seeing a dual GPU card like this actually costing less than 2900XT which will more than likely outperform it. I suppose it's premature to make any of these remarks but this is what usually happens on these damned dual gpu cards.
