GIGABYTE is readying three new variants to its Radeon 5800 series lineup, one of which is particularly worthy of mention and hype.

The folks at BEHardware spotted this beast sitting proudly at GIGABYTE's booth at CES; this is what the company refers to as the Radeon HD 5870 'Super Overclock'. And they're sure fire right about that with the GPU up from the stock 850MHz to a nicely rounded 1GHz. Meanwhile, the 1GB GDDR5 heads north to 5200MHz, up from 4800MHz stock speeds.

 

To assist in keeping the card happy, GIGABYTE opts for a 2oz PCB and a custom designed dual-slot beast of a cooler with four copper heatpipes. All the other features typical of the 5800 series is in place; 256-bit memory interface, DX11 support, CrossFireX support and ATI EyeFinity.

 

A release date hasn't been disclosed but it's expected to arrive before NVIDIA's GF100 shows up.
