Today marked the official introduction of the very powerful ATI HD 5970 video card. As you might expect the unveiling of a new video card means we also have new desktop computers hitting today that feature the card inside.
Maingear has announced that it is cramming not one, but two of the new HD 5970 video cards into the Shift desktop. When equipped with the dual video cards the Shift has 10 teraflops of visual compute power according to Maingear.
The downside is that adding the dual HD 5970 video cards to the Shift tacks on over $1500 to the selling price of the machine. A fully equipped Shift with the dual cards will set you back over $6,000. As they say, you can have cheap or you can have fast, but not both.
