    Sapphire had only two new products to show, a motherboard based on AMD's RS690 chipset with HDMI onboard and a massive X1950 Pro Dual. The X1950 Pro Dual comes with two GPUs on one oversized PCB. The GPUs have a total of 1 GB of video memory. It needs two power connectors and is said to be able to compete with the GeForce 8800 GTX.

    I think I know why the X1950PRO Dual can compete. At that type of internal, 0 latency, 0 signal loss crossfire (its not even enabled as crossfire IMHO), I think the performance boost is realistically 100%. But its CPU reliant lol.

    I think they didn't show results of benchmark because they have problems with drivers...the picture goes only from one card...
