The Inquirer heard the upcoming NVIDIA Quad SLI GeForce 7900 GX2 will consume 286W for two cards.

The board will only be 22.5cm long, much shorter than the original 33.5cm cards that are shipped to OEMs only.
The core is clocked at 500MHz while the GDDR 3 memory runs at 1200MHz. Each chip addresses 512MB of memory, meaning that each card has 1024MB memory or that Quad SLI totally features 2GB of graphic memory.

Each card comes equipped with two Dual link DVI-I connectors and seven-pin HDTV out. The card supports HDCP and we are sure that you cannot use more than a single monitor in Quad SLI.
The price for a single card will be about $750, so to use Quad SLI you'll need to spend about $1,500 for your graphics cards alone!
