Today AMD announced the Radeon HD 3870 X2. This graphics card is based on the R680 graphics processing unit which consists of two RV670 GPU cores. Both cores are interconnected using a PCI-Express bridge chip and run in a CrossFire setup which is completely transparent to the end user. There is no CrossFire option to enable in CCC, nor is there one to disable it. It has a suggested price of $449 and that is aimed at hardcore gamers and will compete with Nvidia’s GeForce 8800 Ultra while waiting for a more powerful rival: dual-chip Nvidia GeForce 9800 GX2.
