Default RV870 single core, R870 dual core, R800 quad core

Originally Posted by NordicHardware
The story of a dual-die GPU from AMD/ATI has been circulating since way before the launch of R700, Radeon HD 4870X2. While it did allow many to dream, it turned out to be just a rumor, or maybe it was just to soon? Either way a source has hinted that the new card R870 will be two GPU dies glued together sharing a memory bus. This is pretty much the exact same that was said before the R700 launch, and while we can't confirm this, similar information has been posted over at Chiphell.

Both are basically saying that AMD has glued two RV870 GPUs together to build world's first dual-die GPU, which is kind of amusing considering AMD's bashing of Intel's dual-die solutions. Anyhow, this means that AMD would then be able to build what many would come to call quad-fire on a stick. Four GPU dies on the same card, R800. It also means that for the first time we will have a middle between the RVx70 and Rx00.

Specification wise this would land us on something like 1000-1200 shaders and 50-60 TMUs with RV870, 2000-2400 shaders and 100-120 TMUs with R870, and 4000-4800 shaders and 200-240 TMUs with R800. In theory (IN THEORY!), AMD could launch them as Radeon HD 5870, Radeon HD 5870 X2 and Radeon HD 5870 X4.

There isn't a salt mine big enough take with this, but we just wanted to notify you that the rumor has resurfaced. Beware.

Sweet rumour! Today, Quadfire (2 x X2's) isn't performing as it should, so a (salty) HD 5870 X4 might be the brilliant solution!

EDIT i don't believe it's even a rumour yet, just speculation... here (google translated chiphell page)...

Nebuchadnezzar is still being judged by the masses


Due to misinterpretations and since we don't want to be pointed out as the source of misinformation that might distort people's image of what is about to come we've decided to pull this story. We will post an update on Lil Dragon, RV870, and its siblings in the future, but right now we're feeling a bit discouraged to do so.

Until next time,
