    Another HD 4870 X2 picture leak comes from an anonymous E-Mail in my inbox. The pictures show how the PowerColor HD 4870 X2 will look like.

    Wow, they are all coming out today! Any word on whether TPU will be getting a retail one for testing? I want to know if they have fixed the power draw yet.

    I think they already have reviewed it. The minute the NDA is lifted, you'll see the net swarming with reviews! I'm looking forward to anandtech and tpu's review, I find those the best there is.

    In today's day and age, NDAs make me chuckle.

    Well, if they want to be the first to publish reviews next time around, they better agree with the NDA...

    Will the 4870 X2 work with my 680i SLI SE board(TR)?

    I dont know how the Ati drivers are going to work with the nvidia chipset.:(

    Your house.
    Hopefully they'll release an un-stickered cooler, too. :laugh: I was really jiving with the all-black look that the prerelease photos of this card had.

    Yes, should work fine. Don't need crossfire to run this card, and I don't think the presence of an nvidia chipset should cause trouble.

    EDT = GMT - 4 => GMT = EDT + 4

    Man, writing 1201 AM is one strange way to put it. I'm used to 1201 (1201 PM) and 0001 (1201 AM).


    Due to DST, CET should be GMT +2 this time of year, so 06:01 CET is pretty good time to get a coffee and wake up reading the reviews :D

    I don't know why I'm so excited though, I probably wont even buy a new GPU until next year.

    Now i have to pick, should i get a GTX 260 or one of the 4870 X2's?

    I know the 4870 X2 will cost more but i think it may be worth it.

    Is the 680i mobo PCI-E 2 or 1 ? Cus if they havent fixed power issues, the 4870X2 needs the power capability of a PCI-E 2.0 mobo. i also dont know how well a 600W will cope either. Will be interesting to see TPU's review tomorrow and see if power issues are fixed.
