AMD Radeon HD 3850 X2 rumoured

Rumours are popping up that AMD may release a Radeon HD 3850 X2 graphics card at Computex in June.
We're wondering why none of the AIB's haven't already tried their luck by making one and there shouldn't really be any reason for AMD to step in here, as several of its partners did dual GPU cards in the past without any official backing.

We'd expect to see both DDR3 and DDR2 boards, as there will be a cost difference and of course a performance difference between the two. The current Radeon HD 3870 X2 is on sale for a very attractive price in parts of Europe, as it would actually cost you less than getting a pair of Radeon HD 3870's in most cases. If the Radeon HD 3850 X2 can pull off something similar, it could become a seriously popular dual GPU card.
