Asus today unveiled the world?s first on-board triple GPU solution with the concept model ASUS EAH3850 TRINITY/3DHTI/1.5G graphics card, promising to offer an 139% performance boost.

The new graphics board carries three ATI RV670PRO GPUs. Additionally, the EAH3850 TRINITY is equipped with a MXM module for upgrade possibilities and two exclusive extra DVI outputs. It also features a specially designed water cooling solution - ensuring efficient heat dissipation for stable performance. On top of all this, the ASUS EAH3850 TRINITY is equipped with a huge onboard memory size of 1.5GB.

Asus claims that the EAH3850 TRINITY/3DHTI/1.5G is able to elevate 3DMark06 scores from 4880 to 11662, when compared to the single-GPU solutions.

The EAH3850 TRINITY comes with the MXM module design that allows users to obtain the flexibility to upgrade the MXM VGA module in regards to GPU and memory size with lower costs.

The temperature of the newly adopted DIP Spring Chokes is 5~10°C lower in comparison to traditional Toroidal Coil Chokes; while the Japan-made polymer capacitors lowers power loss to provide more stability.

Asus did not provide details about the power requirements of the new graphics card. However, it is obvious that such a concept would require at least a 1000 Watt PSU, not to mention its retail price which could easily surpass the $600 price tag.

Ok, let's say I am willing to pay for this monster. Then I will also need some additional $500-600 for a 1KW PSU.
Is the water cooling system included? I don't think so. So are we talking about a total of $1500?
