If we're to believe the latest rumors, Nvidia will unveil a GeForce GTX 295 graphics card packing dual 55nm GT200 GPUs early next month. Well, the guys at VR-Zone have somehow come upon a photo of this purported card, and they've posted it here.
You can't tell a whole lot from the shot, but the card will apparently feature two circuit boards, and the two GPUs may face each other—at least, we can't see a GPU on the front side of the contraption, and what looks like a large aluminum heatsink separates the two pieces of PCB. We can also spot dual DVI ports and one HDMI output, and VR-Zone claims the card will require both eight- and six-pin PCI Express power connectors.
Price-wise, VR-Zone quotes anonymous "card makers" who expect Nvidia to price the GeForce GTX 295 "competitively" against AMD's Radeon HD 4870 X2. Considering the cheapest 4870 X2 on Newegg is at $490 right now, a launch price around $500 sounds plausible.
