Dual RV670 aka R670 sems to be a 55nm chip. Gotta say this seems very advertising to me..
Claims it can beat a Ultra on its own IDK about that, but dual cards seem to always consume less energy and generate less heat than actually having 2 of htem, and this one is on the 55nm process!
According to Fudzilla on numerous reports it'll likely cost over $300..but thats easy enough to guess anyway..
I hope they get this right for once, its got great promise and apparantly scheduled for Q2 2008, it would definatrly be a card to consider...
Bleh, dual cards usually disappoint, and I doubt this will be an exception. They require too big/noisy of a cooler and consume butt-tons of power. Their biggest downfall, however, is that they are almost universally built on old technology due to the problems of implementing a single PCB solution. Hence we get the 7950GX2 right before the 8000's, and the X1950 Dual thingy right before HD2900. Just like SLI, the new GPU's that show up a month or two later own their dual counterparts while consuming less power, producing less heat, etc etc. So I refuse to get excited over a dual card solution, be it xfire, SLI, or a dual gpu pcb.
Well its August now and im still waiting to see the Gemini version of the 2600xt so i wont hold my breath for this newer one they talk about.
Although if true it does sound good and also if true the timeframes for releases seem to suggest that ATI have got their fingers out at last and are trying to compete.
