There were already several leaks on NVIDIA’s latest dual-GPU solution , according to which, we are currently aware that the card will have two GF110 graphics processors, 1024 Cuda core (512 per each GPU), two 384-bit memory buses to deliver overall of 3GB of GDDR5 memory. The TDP of the card, 365-375W, will require two 8-pin power connectors, while the been cooled with a dual slot cooing system based on vapor-chamber design. However,the most interesting part — the clocks — were kept secret, till now.

Though there are not much time left to present the card officially, you should take this info with a small grain of salt.
