The story at Anandtech

This could be huge. Imagine buying your GPU and knowing that you could add a second at any time, of any type.

Apparently available on an MSI P55 board soon.

Knew about this two months ago, what's so amusing here?

That would depend on your audience. I wanted the people advising new builds to have the info. It's a decision for a new build.

Too bad it's not out yet, plus it's expensive. $1.5 per lane. 1.5x48=72 for the high end board, although this is just an estimated price from anandtech's part

plus there is going to be so many issues at first.compatibility problems.
you do know the rendering of AA in ati and nvidia cards are different, so there will be a lot more issues to come.
