Yup, 4 GB is on the cards (don't mind the pun).
What makes me goes mad is the amount of emty space of these cards.
They will easily make them smaller and sell better.
i hope the store use $1=1 euro conversion, so the card will be priced outside euro for $680.
I can only guess that not having things compact helps with cooling *shrugs*
It certainly proves to be no much of help.
ATi just needs better cooler and gets rid of the stupid red vents thats a god damn inch right there.
For the X2 all that is going to happen is they are still putting the second GPU on a foot long barbeque.
I don't see any better than the 3870X2 or 4870X2, only difference is a longer e-peen.
Seriousley why do people constantly insist on converting something from euros to USD, I guarantee it wont be the same conversion, the US always gets better prices than europe, on everything time and time again, yet people always come out with the same crap
On topic, that is a monster, imagine 2 of those in quad crossfire, you could power a small town with the amount of power that would require, and prices will drop when gt300 comes out. I will wait for a £150 HD 5850 and be happy
*Drools profusly and passes out* *then bursts into flames and yells about chacitos*
Yo dont need to buy a new case, is modding time!!! grab a can cutter ssissor, and remove all the IDE bays, and put your hard drives on the CD/DVD rooms with screws well attached and some support if is needed. End of the problem.
I already took my 4 HDDs out of my removable rack, moved them into my empty 3.5" and 5.25" bays, and took out the rack several weeks ago.
well, You forgetting that we have better pays than usa.
When my education is done i get
3500+ euro's a month is surely nothing i complain about
Currently at 1800 though
Its more expensive here, okey, we earn more, okey, diffrence = we can afford more in most countries, depending on what country and state we are comparing..
$1K is a little much for a graphics card don't ya think?
Nonetheless, can't wait to see the benchmarks of this thing!
Don't see why -- each one uses less power than a 4870X2, and people ran two of those all the time.
That being said -- whatever happened to ATI promising not to sell any cards over $500?
its not gonna cost that much you need to remember that in the UK they pay more for graphics cards than over here in the US.
thats what really sux, people in EU always get ripped off sadly.
Apparently AMD's target SEP price is still $500:
Small fan for hot card = fail.
And even if it is awesome in performance it too will be outdated pretty quickly.
That sucks for those in EU
If that is so, Hot damn!
Retail price usually is ± $50 target price, as was with HD 4890.
wow this is rediculous....seriously i wanted 2 of thse..because let me tell you when you go quad youll never go back...but this is rediculous. wtf am i going to hold it up with? do they come with suspension lines that bolt on to your cases cross bar? because at that price i will not buy them seperatly.
hehe, that will fit in my case with ease
Old unusual server case FTW
I don't think they're worrying about that yet... I personally never worry about anything until it happens.
I worry about the 5870 being too freakin long before I buy the card.
Well, it proves to be right.
Nvidia say something if you can't
Meh, it will fit in my case. Sometimes we have to sacrifice things like size for an ultra over the top high end card.
still waiting for Nvidia GT300 series..
but this x2 card from ATI is a beast *drool
you'd be surprised at how light cards get when you remove the stock cooler and slap water or even third part air on them
