Foxconn shows off a Quad SLI setup using GeForce 7900GX2s

Yesterday we published details about the GeForce 7900GX2 Quad SLI video adaptors that showed up on a few German merchant websites.  Today it seems as though benchmarks of the card are available (English translation).

Foxconn's Dual GeForce 7900GX2 1024MB adaptor sports a 500MHz core clock with 1.2GHz DDR3 memory support.  These clocks are lower than the GeForce 7900GTX, which has a 650MHz core clock with 1.5GHz DDR3 memory. For those who are unaware, Foxconn is now a contender in on the video card market.

Like the GeForce 7800GTX Quad SLI adaptors, the 7900GX2 adaptors are really two 7900GTX adaptors with the PCIe lanes from one card physically routed via a bridge connector to the main card.  A PCIe x48 bridge chip sits on both physical PCBs.  16 of those lanes are routed to the motherboard and the other 32 are spread between the GPUs. 

The cards demonstrated by Foxconn were running 32xAA.  The Quad SLI system consumes an incredible 650W during heavy operation.  As we reported yesterday, each Quad SLI card is expected to retail over $1,000 and require an SLI x16 motherboard.
