ATI R700 is Radeon HD 4870 X2, has 2GB GDDR5

Posted on Friday, July 04 2008 @ 23:34:19 CEST by

There was some confusion last month that AMD might give the R700 another name than Radeon HD 4870 X2 but FUD Zilla now confirms this is the final name of the dual-GPU card.
The volume production of R700 GDDR5 boards starts on July 28th while the card should be available in August 2008. ATI plans to sell BBA boards (Built By ATI) and the partners will buy a complete board including fan at least for the time being.

The board with 2GB GDDR5 might not be that cheap but the 1GB version is also be possible. ATI hopes to capture the performance crown and it has the best chance since years. An ATI VP already told us that according to internal testing R700 should end up faster than current flagship Geforce GTX 280.
