Hemlock Spotted
ATI's 5870x2 Hemlock PicturedJust about everybody knows that ATI plan to add a dual GPU solution to their 5800 series of graphics cards in the coming months, topping the current 5870 in terms of performance. What we weren't expecting was images of this card to appear so soon after the 5870 release, I suppose ATI want to show that everything is on track for their release around the same time as Nvidia's DirectX11 cards, around November time.
It comprises of two 40nm RV870 'Cypress', dual 256-bit memory interface and 3200 stream processors, clock speeds are not yet known, they could be less than the 5870's due to a higher TDP. The power for this beast is provided by a 6pin and an 8pin power connector, obviously hinting at high power draw, like the previous flagship dual GPU solution - the 4870x2. Lets hope that this 40nm card runs somewhat cooler, and hopefully a bit quieter this time!

I Hunta x
ok i MIGHT just have to get the harley quinn 275 instead of the 4890 i was planning to get.... sod the 285 as joker > batman and the extra 100 for the few frames more insnt worth it to me.

EDIT: oh and is there any news on the amount of the 275's or 260's being made? as it says there will only be 800 of the 285's

mabey there will be like 1200 of the 175's 1500 of the 260's?

also tbh it wouldnt suprise me if a huge batman fan boy brought a 285 and 260 for physics in there main machine and a 275 for a 2ndary machine (or swap the 260&275 around)

I saw something about this yesterday under the title of 275/Joker - and in all honesty thought it was a goof.

I'd expect packaging, discounts all the way up to the 300 series release.

(ofc this would be reported as panicking over amd's new ventures beating the older generation or summit)
