AMD has released the Radeon HD 3870 X2, the company’s first dual-GPU high end graphics card. According to its first reviews it has better performance than nVidia’s 8800 Ultra, putting AMD back on top as far as performance goes.
The card features two 825 MHz Crossfire-linked 3870 GPUs, and a memory clock of 1.8 GHz. The card is almost exactly twice the power of the regular HD 3870 at 1 TFlops. It is expected to be priced at $450.
This is great news coming from AMD, as pushing the industry forward through competition is always a welcome thing.
