Up until this very moment, we haven't had the slightest idea what AMD would call its upcoming dual-GPU. But according to VideoCardz, it will be called the Radeon Pro Duo - a large departure from what we thought it would be called, which was the Radeon R9 Fury X2.

We don't know what the Radeon Pro Duo will end up as, apart from rocking dual Fiji GPUs and I'm guessing 8GB of HBM (4GB per GPU). We are expecting a huge 18TFlops of performance, with the card being teased quite a bit by AMD cool guy Roy Taylor over social media for months now. We should expect the Radeon Pro Duo to be unveiled next week on March 14 at AMD's Capsaicin event, and we will be there live covering it.
