ATI CrossFire Clockspeed Adjustments
"ATI CrossFire Clockspeed Adjustments"
Published: 21st July 2006 | Source: N/A |
The upcoming Radeon X1950XTX and X1950 CrossFire Edition will be clocked at the same speeds, something that has not yet been seen in ATI's current crossfire linup. In previous versions of CrossFire cards the cores have typically been underclocked compared to their single-card alternatives.
This is not the only change that the Radeon X1950 (R580+ core) will be sporting, these cards will be carrying support for GDDR4, as opposed to GDDR3 for the earlier cards. The clock speeds of the Radeon X1950XTX will be 650MHz core and 512MB of 2GHz GDDR4 memory.
The card is set to release at $449 USD sometime in late August, early September.
As of the R600, ATI will be able to phase out master cards altogether in its high-end line up, moving more towards the way their X1600 and X1300 cards opperate (the same as NVIDIA's setup of any two similar cards working together)
