    The people of Hothardware have gotten there hands on the new ATI 3870X2 card.
    The card as show on the first foto contains 2 PCIe supplyconnectors, a 6 pin and a 8 pin.
    The lenght of the card doesn´t look at all of the same size as the 8800 Ultra card or GS as i posted yesterday in a another thread, it is maby longer than your motherboard:laugh:.

    Also a Chineze site has leaked specifications of a Benchmark in 3Dmark 2006. The copy they have used contained 2 cores that ran on 775MHZ, while in the meantime the 1 GB did his job at 2250 MHZ. The only benchmark they posted has been done with 3Dmark 2006 with a resolution of 2560X1600, they established a score of 9573 points. (For the people who are wondering what a score would be on a resolution in 3Dmark 2006 of 1280x1024 will be the same score as 3870 in crossfire mode. Further of all the system contained a Intel C2D E6600 with 2 GB of DDR 2 memory. Further of all i have a foto without the cooling on it so that you can clearly see the PLX chip that exchanges data between the two GPU´s.

    For the original article go to http://my.ocworkbench.com/bbs/showthread.php?p=425415#post425415

    Also again many thanks to Hardware.info for getting use nice previews of the card.

    errrm... yes.. with the 3850 ??? beat how? I don't understand... nVidia just got Forbes' Company of the year because the slaughtered AMD on the market. Also, both companies use green logos.

    this X2 is awesome, i would definitely get it if i had a huge res monitor (which i want) but the 9800GX2 is coming out at same time and it will be 2 g92's in SLI, ATi is too late with this card... so in reality, it will depend on pricing.

    10K in 3DMark06 at that huge resolution is awful impressive.
    WarEagleAU says thanks.

    What are people getting with a 3870 in CF with a Q6600 at 3.30 using vista?

    Agreed, TBH, NVidia GX2 or this monster, if either work out as fast or faster than their 2 card SLi/XFire counterparts and are cheaper then either would do me!

    It has to be i gues , because here http://www.hardware.info/benchmarks/cmpx/view/
    you can the systems that get a score of 17000 they atleast have 2 cards before reaching this score. Also it can be easly Photoshopped.
    I don´t trust the photo sorry.

    Lol, I was playin with Strick94U's comment above mine but dont bother quoting the GTX sli of 17574, I can more or less hit that with a single GTS 512MB! :D I can only imagine those GTX's were severly bottlenecked cause I beleive there are some 20,000+ scores in the 2006 thread, although I would love to see a couple of GTS 512MB's on say a quad at 4gig.

    I actually thought that was too slow to be Xfire TBH however looking again I see to be fair the quad was not clocked that high.

    I'm curious . . . how would CCC look at a card that has 2 GPUs on it? Would it actually consider the card in xFire all the time, or would it just look at it like any other single GPU card?

    The PLX chip makes sure that the CCC will see it as one card. PLX chip exchanges data between the two GPU´s so also information i presume.

    Here is a 640 GTS doing 5564 at 2560x1600 using XP :D
    And the GTX in SLI is a legitimate score using Vista Ultimate. The R680 isn't OC'd using a moderate cpu OC (which you already figured out).

    New gen isn't that much higher if at all higher at 256-bit :p
    In any case anyone else have any 2560x1600 scores?
