It has two RV870 GPUs clocked at 725MHz, which is some 125MHz less than on the single GPU Radeon HD 5870, but both chips have kept 1600 shaders. This means that Radeon HD 5970 has 3200 shaders and comes with 2GB GDDR5 memory.

Maximum Board Power is 294W and the total GPU compute...

this card is expected to launch @ $600 (no doubt 400 in the UK) ..... Nvidia are gonna miss the boat this time around im afraid....they're gonna loose a bunch of customers....

Of course, if it's anything like the currently supply of ATI high-end video cards...you aren't going to be able to find one of these cards for about 6 months.

Anybody here having any luck finding the 5850's or the 5870's??????

For that type of money ATI better make sure their drivers are in order, especially the crossfire part.

At any rate i'm sure it's a nice card, but i'll hold on to my trusty 4890 and wait for round two.

And what happened to your pics?

Yeah, I ordered one just before it came out (Sapphire 5850), when it was cheaper too! Since then they have gone pre-order only and 30 more expensive!

It was quite an upgrade from my Radeon X850 XT..
