Sapphire Technology, a leading manufacturer of ATI graphics cards, has a new card nicknamed The Godfather
. The card features two X1950pro graphics processing units and has been built to the 9” riser board standards, utilising a single 16x PCI-Express slot. According to Sapphire, this card performs similarly to two X1950pros in Crossfire. If the card uses the same speeds as standard X1950pros then it can be expected to have core speeds of 575MHz and memory at 700MHz, although this might be reduced if there are heat issues. The card appears to be crossfire capable, so it is likely that two of them could be used together for “Quad-Crossfire”.
