    HIS (Hightech Information System) announced another single-slot dual GPU solution, model HIS X1600 Gemini. The card is developed for the upcoming ATi RV560/RV570 and RV530 Pro is used to testing purpose. The new RV560 and RV570 80nm parts will launch in August and integrate the CrossFire compositing logic onboard, so that will make CrossFire master cards obsolete, as usual accelerators will be able to work together. The card uses an onboard chip to split the PCIe x16 into two x8 parts, to provide bandwith for both GPUs.

    ok all they did was make it 2x length and use a pci-e splitter...the pcb is still red and the layout the same. im guessing they have just modified the power leads and still used reference x1600 layouts
