AMD Flagship R680 - 1Tflop

slide

It has been reported that AMD plans to introduce a dual chip card called Radeon HD 2950X2X and it will have two RV670 chips on a single PCB. They called this dual GPU solution R670. On the other hand, we are still hearing R680 from our sources but both of us could be referring to the same thing. We even heard faintly that R680 could be AMD's ambitious plan to integrate two RV670 into a single die, if not on the same package.

VR-Zone has got hold of a presentation slide recently that gave some clues that R680 is a dual GPU (RV670 slide show only one GPU pic). Our good buddy, CJ told us R680 is indeed a dual RV670 solution and is 1.5X faster than a Radeon HD 2900 XT in Crossfire. Another source told us that R680 could reach 20K in 3DMark06 or rather the target AMD is trying to achieve.

Well, it`ll be similar. Expect 2/4 ram slots as they say they`re having issues with ddr2. Dunno how they`re having issues with old tech, maybe it`s to do with them trying ddr2&3 on the same mobo.

PCI loss isn`t good. They bank on u liking their sound and sa2/raid. U`d either need to get a newer pci-e sound card or w8 for a physx/tvcard/raid pci-e.

For the most part tho, a very high % of peoples will be ok with one pci slot. If u`r in the lower % I guess u just overlook it. Like options myself.

2 ddr2 ram slots, 4 ddr3 ram slots. 4 x16 pci-e slots.

Was lookaing at this earlier.

From what I have seen, asus maximus vs gigabyte vs p5k vs p5b... x38 is not much of a step forward, being beaten by older mobos in some aspects and only leading very slightly.

Holy crap. Pre-watercooling does sound good though. ;)
