Galaxy developing DX11-ready dual-GPU graphics/PhysX card

Galaxy logoWe're not sure how popular EVGA's GTX 275 Co-op PhysX model was but it apparently hit a soft spot with Galaxy as the company is making something similar, a card combining a GeForce GTX 470 (handling graphics) and a GeForce GT 240 (for PhysX calculation) on a single PCB.

Seen below, Galaxy's graphics-physics hybrid card has an over-sized blue PCB with one 40nm GF100 GPU and one 40nm GT215 GPU and an Nvidia NF200 bridge chip for more PCIe lanes. The GTX 470 has 448 CUDA Cores and makes use of 1280MB of GDDR5 memory while the GT 240 packs 96 Cores and 512MB of memory.

The dual-GPU card requires additional power via a 6-pin and an 8-pin PCIe connector, includes dual-DVI and HDMI outputs, and can apparently be used in SLI too. Galaxy didn't mention a release date for the blue/green monster.
