Sunnyvale, Calif.In a move that will expand the visual boundaries of PC entertainment beyond the 1080p HD threshold, AMD has developed the ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 graphics processor that breaks the Teraflop (one trillion floating point operations per second) barrier.
The ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 nearly doubles the performance of the ATI Radeon HD 3870 introduced in November 2007. The 55 nanometer process-based ATI Radeon 3870 X2 combines two ATI Radeon HD 3870s on a single graphics board, connected through integrated CrossFire technology.
ATI Radeon 3870 X2 supports Microsoft's upcoming DirectX 10.1 technology. ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 will also provide support for ATI
CrossFireX, the next-generation AMD multi-GPU technology designed to support up to four GPUs. Software support to enable ATI CrossFireX is planned for late in the first quarter of 2008.
