ATI R700 graphics card pictured

Posted on Friday, June 20 2008 @ 02:37:44 CEST by

Hexus took a picture of the ATI R700 graphics card at a press event in Malaga, Spain. The site heard this card will be available in late July but the name and the pricing of the card is still not finalized. First everyone assumed they would give this card the Radeon HD 4870 X2 moniker but it seems AMD is trying to find a better name.

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.
