Rumour has it that ATI is planning to release a Radeon HD 4850 X2 graphics card next month. This card is expected to feature two Radeon HD 4850 GPUs along with 2GB of GDDR3 memory, with a price tag between $349 and $399.
The ATI Radeon HD 4850 X2 graphics cards that feature two ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics chips along with 2GB of GDDR3 memory (1GB per chip) are now “validated” by graphics cards makers, said Sasha Marinkovic, senior product marketing manager at AMD’s graphics products group at a news-conference on Thursday.
According to Mr. Marinkovic, ATI provided reference design of the Radeon HD 4850 X2 graphics cards to manufacturers and expects to see the new graphics cards on the market shortly. It is unclear why did makers of graphics boards decided to delay the model HD 4850 X2 by months when compared to mid-August release time-frame for the top-of-the-range model HD 4870 X2.
