HD 5970 ATI card specifications

We spoke with a few industry insiders this morning to get the latest information on the upcoming dual card from HD entitled the HD 5970 – we reported on this card a few days ago.

As we all know ATI are no longer naming these dual cards “X2’s” and the naming conventions are confusing people already. if you don’t already know the HD 5970 is basically two RV870’s in one solution and we hear that the core clocks will be between 725-750mhz and the GDDR5 memory will be running at 1000mhz via a dual 256 bit bus implementation. What is confusing however is that while these are basically two HD 5850s running together the HD 5970 has 2 x 1600 stream processors and 2x 80 texture units which is double what is implemented on a HD 5870.

Power consumption is reported right now to be 325W, however it may be some time before anyone will get their hands on one of these in the luxury of their home, especially with the world wide shortages of currently available high end ATI boards.
