AMD's latest ATI Radeon 4870 X2 graphics processor promises over 2 teraFLOPS of processing power. To achieve that level, AMD took a double-barreled approach: It combined two GPUs on a single board, connected them with a wide pipe, and threw in 2 GB of memory.




Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD) Latest News about AMD (AMD) announced the upcoming availability of what it says is the world's fastest graphics card Latest News about graphics card, the ATI (Nasdaq: ATYT) Latest News about ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2. The card is part of AMD's ATI Radeon 4800 X2 series. It's the most powerful graphics technology to come out of AMD, delivering a 2.4 teraFLOPS of processing power -- that's 2.4 trillion floating point operations per second.

AMD was able to achieve that amount of computation power not by developing a new, more powerful chip, but by combining two ATI Radeon 4800 series graphics processing units (GPUs) and throwing in a more advanced cross-GPU connection based on the PCIe 2.0 standard. It also mixed in 2 GB of memory.

"It's a neat idea and a good approach for them," Ian Lao, an analyst at In-Stat, told TechNewsWorld. "Rather than go back and try to do everything into one super integrated piece, if you can do it and hit a target window for the market, more power to you."
