The gang over at NordicHardware has some shots of a new ASUS graphics card that they claim is going to combine three Radeon HD 3850 GPUs on a single PCB.  While the idea intrigues me, I have to say I have MORE than my fair share of concerns about the idea based on some experiences with previous custom built GPU hardware.

ASUS Planning a 3-GPU 3850 card? - Graphics Cards  1

As you can see, ASUS has chosen to use a kind of modular design where the two cores are located on the back and one on the front, each on their own daughter card. The cores are directly cooled by heatsinks and heatpipes that transfers the heat away from the cores to the heatsink located in the rear of the card, which in turn is cooled by a water block.

Four DVI ports which can be used with up to four monitors, when CrossFire is deactivated.
