I would assume it's a diagnostic port of some kind, something for an engineer's test board, but something that won't make it onto the final version.

I guess Asus has money to burn as their Asus Ares (dual HD 5870) is a total waste of time and money.
for a $1000 I rather buy a car as a HD 5870 2GB ($500) can power a 6 screen Eyefinity set up quit nice.

It's cheaper to just get a gtx 480 SLI set up instead of a $1200 single card that want perform any better than a GTX 480 sli

3 GF 104s on one board would have been better as 3 way GTX 460 sli is not supported.

The little geek in me says this is kinda cool. It does seem pretty extreme though since 1 GTX 480 seems to fit the bill for most games, I'll even give props to AMD for making a good card in the 5870.

I think that's stupid that an Nvidia upper would be mad about that, if they sell more units why should he be all up in arms about it?

It almost might be worth it to buy it at the MSRP price point and re-sell it on flebay for a nice mark-up.

So I was wondering what is really holding back dual gpu cards from being able to connect 4 cards? like on either side XFire or SLI, why couldnt they add an additional connector like on single gpu cards? is it possible but ATI/NVIDIA doesnt want to allow it or is there currently a limitation?

Looks like Asus are putting a cheeky middle finger up to Nvidia with this card. Well that and the 'because we can attitude they seem to have.

The entusiant in me loves it, the practical person in my thinks they are mad.
