ATI planning a new Radeon 5870 X2 Graphics card
There have been numerous rumors floating on the web that AMD ATI is working on an updated dual-GPU X2 card. Though names and specifications vary a lot, yesterday an entry for a Radeon HD 5870 X2 popped up at a Dutch (respectable) etailer.
It's quite interesting as they inserted the card specifications into their system as well.
|GPU frequency||800 MHz|
|Memory Frequency||4800 MHz|
|Max Resolutie||2560 x 1600 pixels|
|HDMI||1 x HDMI|
The most scary thing has to be the price, as it's set at 677 EUR right nopw, but likely that's wahaaay lower if it ever would reach production. Either this could be a lame joke, or the real thing, but we know for a fact that ATI is working on an update in whatever shape or form that might be.
The other rumor is that ATI is working on a several RV790 based graphics cards, including a dual-GPU Radeon HD 4995 X2. A site claims internal sources at AMD told them there will be a Radeon HD 4950, a Radeon HD 4970, and a Radeon HD 4995 X2. The reporter says this card should enable ATI to regain the performance crown from the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295. Previous reports claimed ATI may introduce the first RV790 GPUs at CeBIT and there's some speculation that these parts may be 40nm but nothing is really official yet.
