Radeon HD 3870 X2 at CES

Still no specs yet unfortunately, but AMD is showing off its Radeon HD 3870 X2 graphics card at CES. As you can see, the card has been installed in a system, which would suggest its working – to some extent at least.

i would guess double the 3870 card.. but prices for flagship card are based on what the market will stand.. i recon they have the cards ready need just need tweak the drivers to make it go as well as they can..

no point in letting it lose till the drivers are tweaked..

trog

ps.. its one inch longer than the single card..

How do you figure?

The 9800 GX2 spreads each core to a different PCB.

This one has both on the same one. It must be a lot longer.

It's not really that long, looking at my 2900XT now, it's pretty much level with the end of my motherboard (p5k Deluxe) the 3870X2 looks to be 2cm longer, and considering it's twice what a 2900XT is and all on one PCB (glares at 9800GX2 :p), I'd say that's a pretty good accomplishment!

$400-$500 range. I'm guessing we'll see it at the egg for $599.

Hey, in the 3rd picture that's a Velocity Micro! I hear they make some pretty freaking sweet PCs.

damn - you could land a friggin F-22 Raptor on that thing!!! :twitch:

Check it out, y'all - the new ATI CVN 3870x2. Design principle: to be long enough to launch tactical air strikes against opposing nVidia powered systems.

Now we see what AMD is up to :laugh:

Also, anyone notice the Freezer7???:O....Looks like AMD was using a Intel cpu...wowzers

Yes, according to fud, it was an x48 MB with a QX9770 CPU.

well - if what someone else pointed out is right - that the 3rd pic is of a VM build, then VM would chose as they wish for the CPU in the testbed rig. It only means that AMD sent VM either a 'loaner' or a 'demo' version of the card. Considering how VelocityMicro is pretty thorough with their setups, I doubt AMD would've thought to specify an AMD CPU for the PR, as the CPU isn't what's supposed to be catching people's attention.

In the vid that SpookyWillow linked to, though, as best I can tell, it looks like an all AMD rig. Quite possibly, even being demoed on an AMD Spider rig.
