ATI / AMD
has finalized the Radeon HD 5970 spec. First and foremost, the card is scheduled to launch on the 18th, or this coming Wednesday and it will without a doubt be the fastest card for this Christmas.
It has two RV870 GPUs clocked at 725MHz, which is some 125MHz less than on the single GPU Radeon HD 5870, but both chips have kept 1600 shaders. This means that Radeon HD 5970 has 3200 shaders and comes with 2GB GDDR5 memory.
Maximum Board Power is 294W and the total GPU compute performance for the card is 4.64 TFLOPs.
The card looks great, we are sure it will deliver some great performance numbers and it will definitely beat Geforce GTX 295, which was the performance king for some 10 months.
