Bored with waiting for NVIDIA's Fermi chips, Galaxy decided to develop a dual-GPU graphics card with two GeForce GTS 250 GPUs. Basically, this model seems to be a beefed up single-PCB version of the GeForce 9800 GX2 with lower power consumption. It's unknown when or if this card will be available in retail stores.
As you can see, the two GPUs are placed on a single PCB, and the Low Power edition G92-426 GPUs are expected to bring down the power draw. The graphics board also features one BR04 bridge chip and 16 pieces of 0.8ns DRAM chips. Each GPU is served by 1GB of memory and a 256-bit of memory interface.

The card features 6-phase power supply design and employs Bussmann choke which boasts up to 2MHz frequency. The combination of low power GPU and luxurious power supply circuit sounds to be quite promising for overclocking enthusiasts.
