Radeon HD 3850 X2 rumored for Computex

Written by test

Seems a long time to wait

According to OCWorkbench, AMD is rumored to be launching the Radeon HD 3850 X2 at Computex in June, but we have to wonder why they would wait so long. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that it wouldn't be a huge effort to make such a card.

We're wondering why none of the AIB's haven't already tried their luck by making one, and there shouldn't really be any reason for AMD to step in here, as several of its partners did dual GPU cards in the past without any official backing.

We'd expect to see both DDR3 and DDR2 boards, as there will be a cost difference and, of course, a performance difference between the two. The current Radeon HD 3870 X2 is on sale for a very attractive price in parts of Europe, as it would actually cost you less than getting a pair of Radeon HD 3870s in most cases. If the Radeon HD 3850 X2 can pull off something similar, it could become a seriously popular dual GPU card.

Time will tell when these products becomes available, but Computex is still almost three months away, so we'd expect to see products before then.
