ATI R800 to be a dual-GPU DX11 card

Posted on Monday, May 25 2009 @ 14:57 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
FUD Zilla heard that ATI is planning to release the R800 by the end of this year, it will be a dual-GPU card with two 40nm DirectX 11 GPUs.
RV870 is a single 40nm DirectX 11 capable chip while R800 will be made of two of them. R800 should be competing with Nvidia’s GT300 chip and at this stage, we doubt that anyone knows who should win this performance crown fight but the hopes are high.

GT300 should also be on the schedule to launch in late 2009 but we’ve heard before that ATI hopes to be the first DirectX 11 on the market, but we are quite sure that both next generation chips and cards will launch close to each other.
