Working AMD RV670, Phenom System Pictured

Sapphire has not only showcased its Radeon HD 2600 X2 DUAL at this year's World Cyber Games (WCG) Grand Final in Seattle but it has also shown off some soon to be released products including a AMD Phenom X4 Engineering Sample CPU, Sapphire RD790 (790 FX) motherboard and Crossfire setup consisting of two RV670 cards. AMD is calling its CPU+GPU+Chipset package "Spider".

and? so what..

id take dual slot over single on stock coolers anyday. even if the temperatures are down on the RV670 cards the bigger stock cooler will allow a better overclock.

Power consumption on these cards is way down compared to the R600 as clearly demonstrated by the use of a single six PCIE cable.:toast:

Didint some early RV670 pictures sport single slot cooler? Guess these babies come in different varieties of default heatsinks.

Theres 2 versions of the 2950 Pro, one which would indeed need a dual slot cooler due to much higher clocks, and the other uses the single slot as its clocked lower.

Wait, am I reading that screen wrong? Does that mean the CPU is 128-bit?

I run it silently and i really mean silently on idle at 25% under 68ºc over that it kicks at 31% to quickly cool it down, at full load its quite audible, but u wont notice if u focus on the game...

That baby looks nice (RV670 and Gladiator obviosly). Wonder how much the cooler adds to the price, as Revival with VF900 would be sweet and changing a good stock cooler to an after market one, is not so fun. Although I'm sure my x1900xt thanked me, when I took the 400g+ cooler off and popped in a 185g one :)

are these cars jsut as long as a 7900gs or longer?
They are ½cm longer than a x1900xt, at least when I did an image comparison. So if 7900gs is 19cm, it's longer. Same as 7800gt, seems it's 21,5cm. Motherboard is 24cm, based on that picture, seems to confirm it.

As I recall the quad father is just a dual Opteron system, ie you'd need dual processor capable Opterons. Though they are the same core, so yes you can do that.
