Sapphire packs two ATI Radeon HD 2600 GPUs on a single card

Sapphire Technology is demonstrating the follow-up to the X1950 Pro Dual at Computex 2007. The new graphics card is based on AMD’s recently announced -- but not shipping -- ATI Radeon HD 2600 graphics processor. The product is still in development and unnamed. However, the prototype card features two ATI Radeon HD 2600 GPUs in CrossFire mode.

The two GPUs are joined together by the same PLX PCIe bridge chip as the Sapphire X1950 Pro Dual. Each ATI Radeon HD 2600 GPU feeds off its own pool of memory, as with two separate cards operating in CrossFire. This time around, Sapphire has opted to equip the dual ATI Radeon HD 2600 graphics card with quad DVI outputs instead of dual DVI and dual VGA.

The card also features internal CrossFire connectors for multi-card quad CrossFire configurations. Sapphire expects to have quad CrossFire drivers ready for the card in the future for quad HD 2600 action.

As the product is still in development, Sapphire has not set a launch date, core clocks or memory configurations yet.
