Next to shrinking that die-size, ATI did make another clever move; the move back to the bit memory bus still using the bit ring-bus. Not enjoying the view. Each GPU has 16 lanes going to it, and then the final 16 lanes head directly to the PCIe connector and out to the motherboard’s chipset. The mobile world might finally get exciting again in Anyone who would rather an nvidia is out of their mind. AMD and Nvidia are battling against each other again in what could prove to be one of the great wars in the 3D graphics industry. The idle temps are short from astonishing.

Brett Thomas sure is, but this one isn’t something he blames on Microsoft. The dual GPU product that you guys learned to know under codename Malta finally is released. Great sound, but it’s trapped in Apple’s world. The letter A is added to indicate the correction that was made in the measurement.
What would happen if your PSU can’t cope with the load?: Previous page 01 PowerColor bundled the card with the following:. Read on to find out why he’s not enjoying the view. Read on to find out whether it delivers Read on to find out beat he’s not enjoying the view.
Looking at it from a performance versus wattage point of view, the power consumption is really good with the new 55nm products. In this review we’ll look at the product, the architecture, the benchmarks, including frametime based FCAT measurements.
Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. We’ve got plenty of pics inside too! Asus Apple Sony Google Valve.
ATI Radeon HD X2: 2 GPUs 1 Card, A Return to the High End
Yes indeed a Crossfire bridge connector is included as well, very much needed as will be possible to combine two HD X2 cards in CrossfireX. AMD is particularly proud of its PCB design which is admittedly quite compact despite featuring more than twice the silicon of a single Radeon HD While we appreciate AMD’s intent to keep prices in check, the justification is what we have an issue with. The one you’ve been waiting for. Read on to out how it gets on!
Don’t show this again. We’ve spent the last few weeks familiarising ourselves with the architecture behind the hardware. The cooler is massive and industrial though.
Bandersnatch is here to cap a twisted According to AMD, the fix in the driver that so positively impacted Crysis performance had to do with the resource management code. At the last minute we got an email from AMD stating that the embargo on X2 reviews had been pushed back to the 28th and we’d receive more information soon enough.
We suspect you wouldn’t want to go any lower than watts or so for a single X2, especially if you paired it with a quad-core CPU.
ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2
A big thumbs up to AMD here. Apparently some overhead in the Vista memory manager had to be compensated for, and without the fix AMD was seeing quite poor scaling going to the X2. Not only is it less powerful and less value for money, but nvidia is really stingy about replacement of defects, not to mention they don’t have one reliable third party manufacturer, in the face of ATI’s 2 really good ones Sapphire and HIS.
The fan rotational speed remains constant. We find out how the Radeon HD X2 has changed over the last few months – does it still have a place in the market now that Nvidia has released the GeForce series?
