HIS Radeon HD 2900XT Information

As we reported to you earlier today, HIS Digital recently updated their website with the online product presentation of their upcoming HIS Radeon HD 2900XT 512MB GDDR3 VIVO PCIe graphics card. It seems like HIS took the website down now but we still have all the pages for your viewing pleasure.

The ATi flagship will probably need dual PCIE power, but any model below that shouldnt do. I would suspect most sensible people would opt for the model down, money saved, less power draw, OCd = falgship competing performance levels.

All this graphics card nonsence is getting silly now, generation after generation I'm seeing rediculously high power draws, excessive PCB sizes and weight - some to the extent of the PCB warping, and generally very poor PCB design and thermal solutions. Is it really going to take me doing a final year uni project of redesigning a graphics card PCB to wake ATi and nVidia up? Cos if I have to, I'll kick their arse at their own game.

I noticed it said DDR3 memory... I was under the impression it was going to be DDR4??? Maybe that is the XTX model huh.....

I also noticed that a crossfire cable comes in the box??? I thought it was going to be built in support with no need for any special cables??

Well it looks pretty cool, I am very interested in seeing one of these on the street so we can get some proper benchies...... none of this enquirer crap!!

I think ATI was supposed to use the new PCIe 2.0 connector, which has 8 pins on it. Just a guess, as I saw the pic a while back and the connector was red, so I am assuming red = ATI.

I doubt it will really need that much, "maybe" if you were overclocking or using crappy brand psu's.. I'm certain my 500watt 38 amp 12v single rail will handle it... with ease at stock settings..
Fudzilla now says it will work with a 400-500 watt psu aswell... I donno why they didnt link to where they got thier infomation.. They "say" ati said that yet I doubt it... 3 pci-e plugs!? I mean wtf bull is that lol.

"For optimal performance and Overdrive overclocking you need to use one 2x3 pin PCIe power connector and one 2x4 pin PCIe power connector."

I'm out sleep.

750W is probably just a number to cover the weaker PSU's = max ratings. Something like a PC Power & Cooling that rates the PSU's at mean (average) wattage would obviously be able to fly at a much lower rating.

It is quite possible that under high system load (gaming) that the new card with the current high end processors will need at least a 750W PSU.
