AMD AIBs working on HD 7970 X2

Pair of Tahiti 28nm GPUs


According to the post over at Donanimhaber.com, AMD add-in board partners are apparently working on custom dual GPU graphics card that will be based on two 28nm Tahiti GPUs and will be known as the Radeon HD 7970 X2.

Although there has been some talk about the HD 7990 and its appearance at Computex, we have yet to hear any precise details regarding such a card and we are just a few days away from the Comptuex kick off in Taipei. Nevertheless, Donanimhaber.com reports that some AIB partners have been given a green light to do a custom-design dual-GPU graphics card that will feature two 28nm Tahiti GPUs. The card should be known as the HD 7970 X2, and this is pretty much in line what we have been hearing from partners.

Powercolor recently posted a neat picture on its Facebook site and there has been hints that it just might be based on two 28nm Tahiti GPUs, so we would not be surprised if this ends up to be true.

It is still not clear how much freedom do partners have and what to expect from such a custom-designed dual-GPU card but we will surely keep you posted.
