Dual-core GPU
According to sources from TSMC Technology, AMD's next generation graphics core could possibly be the RV870 and feature either a 40nm or 45nm node size. The reduction in size should also help alleviate the increased temperatures that we are seeing from AMD's current HD 4800 Series.
The core area of RV870 will be about 140m㎡ which is much smaller than RV770 260m㎡. As we know by now, it will have 192 ALU. RV770 each ALU matched 5SP and then RV870 will have 960SP. In order to control the core area, it is still 256bit. We believe RV870 will be 1.2 times than RV770 in performances, but this will be decided by the clock of RV870.
The sources have further stated that the RV870 will use a new design to that of the HD3870X2 and the upcoming Radeon HD4870X2, which currently use single PCB+dual graphic core. R800 is rumoured to actually have dual-core GPU's and specs double that of RV870.
Impressive stuff if AMD get some healthy yields

I was thinking performance foam (makes it more comfy)

Seat slide (recommended for users over 5ft 10 and im 5ft 11 already and growing)

And a headrest.

This will be expensive but its for my bad back and all the other chairs we have had are crap to say the least.

Imo arm rests (can be added at a later date) may get in the way etc. and the extra lumber support can be replaced with a cushion or somethin if necessary. What do u think?
