Word has come about that AMD is planning to announce a slightly cut-down version of its new top dog dual-GPU weapon, the HD 5970; this to help counter-attack NVIDIA's arsenal of Fermi (DX11) offerings which are expected to arrive around the same time.

The card we're talking about is the HD 5950 and a report suggests we'll be seeing this one launched sometime during Q1 of next year; though we're yet to see any real confirmation of this.

 

A german website indicates the card will be more or less a dual version of the existing HD 5850 with the same GPU used that carries 1440 stream processors and running at somewhere between 650 and 675MHz. The memory clock also gets a rough mention, sitting at somewhere between 3600MHz and 4000MHz.
