[Techpowerup.com] XFX Alters Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition Design
First spotted at the CeBIT event, the XFX Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition 4 GB graphics card is taking a new shape with the company redesigning its cooler. The older design borrowed heavily from AMD's reference cooler design. Its CGI drawings were released to the press, although the real card with its older cooler was shown off at CeBIT. The HD 5970 Black Edition from XFX sports two AMD Cypress GPUs with 1600 stream processors each, 4 GB of GDDR5 memory across 2x 256-bit memory interfaces, clock-speeds on par with single-GPU Radeon HD 5870 (850/1200 MHz, core/memory), and added overclocking potential. It uses Eyefinity6 display outputs, to single-handedly run six full-HD displays, and multiple Eyefinity display groups.
"XFX have always developed the most powerful, versatile Gaming weapons in the world - and have just stepped up to the gaming plate and launched something spectacular that may well literally blow the current NVIDIA offerings clean away," said XFX, in a statement to Nordic Hardware. "GTX480 and GTX470 are upon us, but perhaps the time has come to Ferm up who really has the big Guns." XFX is targeting high-end consumers, the HD 5970 Black Edition is to be made in Limited Quantities, though available shortly. It is expected to be priced at US $1000.
