    I spotted some new nude shots of the upcoming ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 graphics card today and decided to share them with you. Little is known about the card's specs at the time, but what's apparent from the pics is the black PCB, the two 55nm-built RV770 GPUs and the PLX PCI-Express 2.0 bridge chip situated between the GPUs. On both sides of the PCB there are 16 Qimonda GDDR5 chips for a total of 1GB video memory. Also one 6-pin and one 8-pin PCI-E connectors will be needed for proper operation.

    Nice! I like the single 6+2pin + 6pin for power! I was expecting 6+2 x 2.

    They have these up on NOQ as well. Saw them today when I was reading the NVIDIA Cheats thread.

    Thank God, the X2 now comes with the same memory standard as the "X1", unlike HD3870 X2 whose initial releases came with GDDR3.

    it should best the 280 since it sports a new inter-gpu bus so its scalability of two on pcb gpu's is better than that of two single gpu cards in crossfire.

    think it was quoted as being 1.8x on the dual gpu design vs 1.5x scalability on 2 crossfired cards...

    hmm... since the "joining" of the gpu's is done earlier in the pipeline maybe the overclocking ability will be enhanced compared to that of the old style internal crossfire bridge of the 3870x2

    Engineering masterpiece if you look at the back site of the card.

    Is this card going to be single slot cooling?

    So much for a rated "G" forum....

    **Unrealistic scenario suggesting that 4 year olds read and reply on this forum (which sometimes seems true...) following:** "Mommy? What's mastru____?"

    Come to think of it, I think the forum lost its chance at being anything below PG-13 the day it was born (I win the trophy for lurking!)

    Edit: Nevermind. I don't think I even OWNED a computer at that point...

    just looking at the work gone into it, compare that to how the dual gpu designs of others require 2 pcbs, yet this still packs some serious firepower.

    The designers deserve a round of applause

    Forget about it :roll:

    On a lighter note, I feel like reaching through my LCD & pulling out the card...

    Maybe it won`t in every single game, but the 4870 X2 sure will kick GX2 and GTX280`s asses in at least half of the titles. For The Witcher and Bioshock I am 100% sure!

    I hope its clocked much higher than the 4870, like 900 for each core.

    just look at those PWMs! very complex and clever design :respect:

    This black pcb is really sexy, and by the estimated numbers this beast can output.. oh man :rockout:

    I heard estimates that price should be 450-550$ if I'm not mistaken.
