SAPPHIRE has finished its first dual Crossfire card on a single printed circuit board (PCB) and it is currently being displayed at CES 2007. The card utilises a bridge chip to make the two chips work together. The card sports: dual power connectors; 2 x DVI and 2 x VGA display out's, and is apparently as long as Nvidia's 8800GTX. The Sapphire X1950 PRO DUAL also appears to be cooled by a solution not far removed from the 7900 GTX cooler.
|Both chips are clocked at 580MHz and we are talking about two RV570 chips with 36 "shaders" each. The card has 2 x 512 MB of memory working at 1400 MHz and we seen it in action running the 3Dmark. We haven’t seen the scores as the driver is unready, but the card should get to sample stage by February time. It has a dual Crossfire internal connector, so you should be able to stitch two of these cards together making the quad work. Hopefully.|
