Right but what about multimedia and games. Hmmmmm. If this gpu cost around $800 just for the consumer variant then sales will be very poor while the version intended as a Tesla will cost a fortune. I bet one could buy several city blocks in Detroit for the price of this card.
Problem with a gemini is, the 5970 is already power constrained, thus its lower clocks.
G100 is supposedly a 225+ watt card, so this leaves 75 watts for PCI compliane, minus the x2 scenario.
If in th best case scenario, the G100 is 20% slower than the 5970, a gemini card wont be any better due to power and cpu limitations
That means real world improvements up to 6.2 times faster than the previous gens cards!!!
Do they mean their previous gen or the previous gen top end ? Because if its the first then fair enough but if its the later then they dont really know what the previous gen will have been by the time they actually release it
