AMD is set to launch a new flagship video card called the HD 5970 and ahead of that official introduction, some of the specifications for the card have been leaked online. The card has the code name Hemlock and has two GPUs on a single video card.
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.
