A card as rare as uranium, and just about as heavy

Hardware Asylum managed to get their hands on the extremely rare Gigabyte 3D1-68GT, a dual GPU card whose performance is great, but comes at the cost of severe heat, and a massive size. Still no word on whether there will be an SLI version released in the future.
"The 3D1-68GT is as good a dual-GPU card as we've ever seen, but that does not exempt it from its
associated faults. The weight of the card is a strain on the motherboard, the heat it produces
leaves the case only after warming your processor first, its length forced this author to remount
his harddrives into the floppy-drive bay, and use sub-par SATA ports to boot. However, should you
be able to live with these drawbacks, you will be rewarded with performance only a 7800 GTX 512
can hope to match, and rarity only equaled by the 3dFX Voodoo 5 6000"
