ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB 'Eyefinity' Edition Detailed

Category: Video Cards, General News
Posted: 05:25AM

As you might or might not already know, ATI plan to release a 2GB variant of their already popular Radeon HD 5870. What separates this card though from its siblings is that it comes with six Mini Display Port outputs, which shows that this card is specialised for multi-monitor setups. The new card also requires an 8-Pin and 6-Pin power connector instead of two 6-Pin connectors like the Radeon HD 5870 1GB variant. Apart from the ATI Eyefinity Technology and having no back plate, the cards specifications remain the same with 1600 Stream processors, a core clock of 850MHz and a 4800MHz effective memory clock. Price and release date has not been announced, neither has whether ATI's AIB Partners will be branding and selling the 2GB variant, or if it will only be only available from ATI themselves.

Well, for resolutions like those, I think 2GB is actually really helpful lol.

Come to think of it, if a 2GB 5970 is released (i.e 2x5870 1GB), would there be a chance for a 4GB 5970 Eyefinity Edition (i.e 2x5870 2GB) as well? I'm sure it'd be a killer!

i think so , bigger cards capable of 6-12 monitors i think 4 gigs will be fine for 6or 12 x 30 inch displays
