    I was going to say this is a 6950 but rop count is wrong, it's half a 6970 but with all the rops, interesting.

    I wanna see benches :D

    As two in crossfire is a 6970, in a laptop D:



    I mean rops as in the way we always talk about rops in ATI cards, not the ones listed as rops in the press statement.

    Yup, it's a 6850, but in Crossfire they'll kickass.
    For laptops, it's the best graphics out there when you think about consumption, heat, noise, etc ;)

    No dual socket 1366 with 4 way crossfire? I'm very dissapointed, Eurocom.

    If what you guys are saying is true, I'm amazed, real 6850's in a laptop, I mean 5870m's are just 5770's, thats a huge leap. Question is then, can they be unlocked?

    That is a huge amount of performance crammed into a laptop. Golf clap, Eurocom.

    What kind of question is that? Only the 6950s can be unlocked to 6970s, the 6850s can't be unlock to 6870s, but with the clocks @940/1100 or a little higher, you already have a 6870's performance.

    It is not ( to everyone else as well) read the rop count, my 6870 only has 32 rops, this has 48.

    It's a full blown mobile version of 6970, it just has half the shader count ( probably a few other things reduced as well)

    You misread panther, 48 is the TMU count. 32 is the ROPs. It's a 6850 with lesser clocks.

    Half of the shader count? The 6970 has 1536 shaders, not 1920 ._.'
