Asus offers two versions of the dual GPU HD 3870 X2. One of them is the standard reference edition with a red cooler and two DVI outs, whereas the other packs 4 DVI outs and a brand new cooler. Two fans are placed in the front of the card, and the PCB itself has gone through certain changes. The RV670 graphics chips are overclocked from reference 825MHz to 851MHz and the memory runs at 954MHz (stock speed is 900MHz).
Besides having 4 DVI outs, what struck us as interesting is an option from the Catalyst driver; there's a CrossFire box and it's checked, which means that it’s running and that we can disable it.
Stay tuned because there’s more to follow.
