The GPUs are called Cypress, has an internal CrossfireX configuration, and are built on the 40nm process. Each GPU will have 1600 stream processors and a 256-bit GDDR5 memory interface. Actual VRAM will be 4GB total.

 

That means each GPU will get a massive 2TB of memory. The dual slot card will reportedly have a pair of DVI-D ports and a mini DisplayPort with the other slot having a large heat vent. The NDA will reportedly expire on the card on the 19th of November.
