GX2 Nothing!

The Sapphire X1950 Pro Dual is one large video card. Nothing currently on the market comes close to it. The GeForce 8800GTX is 11" long by 5" wide (27.94 cm x 12.70 cm). The Sapphire X1950 Pro Dual dwarfs it at being over an inch bigger in both directions: 12 1/8" long by 6 1/2" wide (30.80 cm x 16.51 cm).

The card requires two 6-pin power connections just like the GeForce 8800GTX which can supply a maximum of 225 W. Although the coolers are roughly the same size, the all aluminum cooler on the Sapphire X1950 Pro Dual never gets a hot to the touch unlike the GeForce 8800s. It is both quiet and cool.
