The pricing is also uncertain, Hexus cites a range of $499 to $599. Seems like AMD will have to decide between higher margins or slightly more marketshare.
This is the much-talked-about R700, presented on a black PCB. The twin-chip design should output somewhere in the region of 2.4TeraFLOPs of floating-point performance and, taking an educated guess with a GDDR5 implementation, around 230GiB/s of memory bandwidth. In comparison, Radeon HD 3870 X2 on-paper math throughput is roughly 1TeraFLOPS and bandwidth around 115GiB/s, and NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 280's is 0.933TeraFLOPS and 142GiB/s. You got to wonder just how much juice the card will consume. Conservative estimates put it at around 275W.
