Over the last year we've heard a lot of names for AMD's long-delayed dual-GPU Fiji card. The last couple of months it seemed the model would be called Radeon R9 Fury X2 but now it appears AMD is going in a completely different direction. If VideoCardz is right, the dual-GPU card will be called Radeon Pro Duo.
RADEON PRO DUO would essentially be a Radeon card with FirePro capabilities. It is unclear what exactly would be shared between the series, but Radeon Pro Duo is clearly a different product. It is said to become the fastest gaming card on the market and offer best VR experience to date. This is probably where FirePro features are necessary, as this card would is not only designed for gamers, but also game developers (that’s why we saw so many teasers of FNW Tiki systems allegedly powered by dual-Fiji graphics).

RADEON PRO DUO would look almost exactly like Fury X2 with Cooler Master water cooling solution. It is however slightly longer card, and it requires three power connectors (most likely 8-pin).
More info is expected later today but according to the rumor mill, actual retail availability may still be one to two months away.
