Radeon HD 3870 X2 (R680) in Crossfire

and more Spidery goodness

| Video Cards News | Posted: Nov 16, 2007 1:40 am

The lads at LegitReviews have some very tasty eye candy for us all to feast on today. First up, they've managed to source a fresh picture of a Spider gaming system with four 3870 cards running in CrossfireX configuration.

 

 

We first spotted a similar setup earlier in the week, but this is just even more confirmation that CrossfireX isn't far away for the masses; AMD are apparently working hard to iron out what little bugs are left in it before dishing up a public driver for this killer four card setup to work on AMD 790FX.

 

Think that's impressive? Wait'll you see this :-

 

 

Yep, that there is the rumoured Radeon HD 3870 X2 (which may possibly end up being called the Radeon HD 3890). This thing is purely awesome! It's dual 3870 GPUs on a single slot PCB; as you see above, it's able to be thrown into Crossfire mode as well, meaning easy quad-GPU action from your dual x16 slot Crossfire ready board.

 

There doesn't appear to be two Crossfire bridge connectors on these cards, meaning at least for now it is confined to a dual-card setup, but perhaps AMD will unleash an even more impressive CrossfireX ready version down the track to make way for octal HD 3870 GPU power!

 

Apparently we'll see this monster hit the market as early as Q1'08 providing everything goes to plan for the green team.
