We have to admit we were somewhat skeptical about the Radeon HD X2 when we were presented with the idea on paper.

In Case You Missed it Why this should be is not really clear, as ATI’s next-generation dual R HD X2 design uses DDR5 memory‚Ķ Possibly the interconnects auss the part necessitate slower and more stable video memory, while the faster connections are better suited to the HD X2.

But the brilliant part about the new Radeon design is that it doesn’t rely on drivers or a specific chipset to work using the two GPUs in a single board. Each CPU is made on the 55nm process, and the chips containing a rather ominous Million transistors.

Even before testing the X2, we could imagine the performance of two Radeon GPUs put together would be quite good, but as is the case with standard dual-card SLI or Crossfire, we atu expected it to suffer from the same variance depending on the game run. Each R chip simply requires a means of transferring the necessary synchronization data to any other compatible GPUs.

Then late last year we saw the arrival of the Ayi Radeon HDthough again this product was not in contention for the performance crown, although it served well its purpose of creating more value in the mainstream price points. Whether this is a problem related to drivers running on Windows Vista Ultimate bit or not, we are unsure at this point. Current 38870×2 and faculty of accredited Universities may use Frostytech images in research papers and thesis, provided each image is attributed.

However, because the X2 is meant to be a ‘transparent’ single card solution, it is still possible to use two of these at cards in Crossfire mode. But AMD has proven itself this time, successfully launching the Radeon HD X2 on schedule, and perhaps even more important than that, having actual products on retail shelves immediately.

This brings the videocard’s hardware enhancement features in line with the new features offered by the latest iterations of the newly triumphant blu-ray video standard.

HD X2 Still Competitive? User Comments Got something to say?

This is possible due to the fact that the Crossfire logic is actually built directly into the die of the R GPU. The single-card implementation of Crossfire could have easily transformed into big product delays and an overall less appealing product down the line. By the numbers, the R feature stream processors, 16 raster operation units and 16 texture units.

That said, we have still found the current crop of drivers Catalyst 8.

And indeed, the performance of the Radeon HD X2 turned out to be quite close to that as you will see in our benchmarks. For well over a year Nvidia has remained at the top agi the PC graphics market, holding the performance crown so comfortably they never looked as they might lose it.

The Radeon HD X2 is assu compatible with other videocards in the 38xx series, sadly. While for the most part the system was stable during testing, every now and then we would encounter a random crash which did not appear to be specific to any game.
