    In shocking news and in opposition to what most are reporting it looks like at least one ATi partner will be going ahead with a Radeon HD4890X2.

    The HD4890, which launched on the 2nd is giving the GTX 285 a good run for its money. ATi and their partners must feel that an X2 version of this part would clean up the rest of the nVidia parts and recapture the speed crown from nVidia.

    When we asked about the fact that there are no dual 8-pin parts out there, explanation was simple: almost every decent power supply on the market has two 8-pin and two 6-pin connectors for Crossfire and SLI configurations, most of 700W+ ones come with three 8-pin and three 6-pin ones for 3-Way SLI. There is one ATI partner that actually plans such a design and wants to do dual-1GHz GPU clock, partnered with 2GB and 4GB of GDDR5 memory. We are going to leave to speculation what might be the identity of that partner, but know that we managed to see some very interesting engineering drawings.

    You can expect 8+6-pin Radeon HD4890X2 2GB and 8+8-pin overclocked Radeon HD4890X2 2GB and 4GB parts. Unless PM's of respective companies don't get into frenzy mode and stop the parts. That would not be wise, guys.

    It can never get boring in the world of graphics, always have that in mind. ;-)

    4890 is not as good as gtx285

    And if someone does make a 4890x2 then yes it will be the fastest single card...unless nvidia comes up with an x2 version of the gtx275

    Arrey yaar, havn't u heard of the GTX295:-

    GTX295 = 2 x GTX275

    OR

    GTX275 = 1/2 x GTX295
