    The good souls at GPU Café provided product images of the Radeon HD 4870 X2 offering from MSI, placed under the product name MSI R4870X2. Being a standard reference design, it is identical to R700 products from any of ATI's partners (AIBs). MSI went a step ahead by providing product images of a suspended-dismantle image of the card showing two identical copper heatsinks over the GPUs with the black base heatsink assembly and the rear heatspreader assembly. Another image shows two cards seated on a motherboard ganged by a Crossfire interconnect bridge.

    Yeah like the 2900 and due to ram modules being there. All though wish they would asdd better cooling to the back of the card.

    I'm very surprised that the stock heatsink doesn't seem to have any heatpipes.

    The whole black metal plate covers them AFAIK.

    Also, I don't think this cooler needs heatpipes, each core is pretty well-covered by the block of copper.
