The new graphics card from AMD with dual-GPU
In a ceremony held yesterday, AMD announced the worldwide availability of new dinuclear graphics card Hemlock, a series of HD.
The card has two 725MHz Cypress RV870 cores on a single PCB (Printed Circuit Board), the Radeon HD 5970, which is currently the most powerful graphics card available in the market. The new product has the most features of the architecture used in the HD5870. This means that the card has 2x1600 compute shaders, 2x1GB GDDR5 to 1GHz (4GHz speed dynamic), HDMI, dual DL-DVI-I, mini DisplayPort, and incorporates technology Eyefinity. Also, the new model incorporates technology DirectX 11.
This card, however, might be a real challenge for system builders, since the length reaches 33.02 cm.
