    3bn transistors split into two dies is still 3bn transistors whichever way you look at it, and would actually use more power over a single die. And just because you have two dies doesn't mean you can halve the clocks and have the same performance, that's just a ridiculous argument.

    Oh well, sorry, I am not a technitian like you. It was just an idea I had based on what I saw in the case of the CPU's, nothing else. Anyway, they'll have to find "some" solution to these ridiculous temps and power consumptions some day, you know, or Fermi 2 will be nuts.

    Fermi is a complex architecture, and any engineer knows that with complex circuitry (VLSI) comes higher power consumption and higher costs.
    That said, ATI would hit the same brick wall if they have to design a complex board (which they intend to with the e.g. 68xx incoming series).

    And with the price of single HD5970 you can buy 2*GTX470. SLI-scaling with 2*GTX480 was very impressive. Those cards doesnt even have very high temps when you turn up fan a bit which doesnt increase noise much.

    actually Nvidia released a new BIOS to fix fan/temps issues on the 470 480 cards.. and temps don't go past 86-87C at load. so temps excuses arent valid no more

    I just need to know a few things: performance, features, price, temps and power consumption. Nothing else is necessary for a simple buyer like myself. While the first two things are pretty good, the last two are simply awful, you know. Yes, the price could be acceptable seeing the performance, but not seeing the temps and power consumption.
