GECUBE ha annunciato, mediante il comunicato stampa allegato di seguito, due nuove schede grafiche dual-gpu: entrambe sono basate sull'architettura ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 di AMD ed equipaggiate con memoria di tipo G-DDR3. Le card differiscono essenzialmente per il quantitativo di RAM on-board, pari in un caso a 1Gb e nell'altro a 512Mb.
Le specifiche e le feature dell'hardware sono pienamente aderenti al design reference indicato da AMD. Ne consegue, tra l'altro, il supporto delle tecnologie CrossFireX e DirectX 10.1, delle risoluzioni 1920x1200 (single-link DVI) e 2560x1600 (dual-link DVI, HDCP) e della tecnologia UVD (Unified Video Decoder), che permette la decodifica in hardware di contenuti VC-1 e H.264.

Jan 29th., GECUBE, an exclusive partner of AMD with ATI total graphics solution, delivers the fastest 3D graphics performance on a single PCI Express card ¡V HD3870 X2 PCI Express Gemini X edition. Utilizing 256-bit of 1Gbyte of GDDR3 high speed on-board memory and enabling hardware CrossFireX for Quad GPUs performance with just light, compact one card design avoiding the use of a second card installation, delivers a remarkable combination of DirectX 10.1 gaming performance and hardware processed 1080p video based on the top performance of the ATI Radeon HD3870 family with the most impressive games experience. Xtreme power gaming with incredible ATI CrossFireX Quad GPUs performance support for Enthusiast Gamers and high-end workstation users with Multi-view DVI resolution up to 2560x1600 display.
Its design incorporates "Auto Pilot Safe Protection¡¨ features with both GPUs hardware design independent of each other to ensure normal operation even if one of the GPUs ease to functions. Design utilize the usage of high quality ultra-low ESR solid capacitors for longer component lifespan and with its patent pending Turbo Twister cool thermal solution to ensure the best reliability of the design.
The HD3870 X2 GEMINI X Simultaneous Quad DVI display also dramatically increases Office Productivity for business professionals and high-end workstation users. The Quad DVI multi-display configuration permits working with multiple full-screen documents or applications simultaneously ¡X eliminating the need to constantly open, close, or minimize applications. This multi-displays support allow the desktop viewing expands across Quad digital displays enables support for high-resolution panels, offering a stretched desktop of up to 1920x1200 (single-link DVI) or 2560x1600 (dual-link DVI, HDCP) across Quad displays for surround gaming environment.
The GEMINI X RADEON® HD3870XT X2 series PCI-Express X16 cards is available in 2 models:
1> HD3870 X2 - 512Mbyte on-board memory
2> HD3870 X2 ¡V 1Gbyte on-board memory
The HD3870 X2 series architecture shares the 320 stream processors and 512-bit internal ring bus memory controller with multiple rendering units and a programmable tessellation unit to deliver outstanding graphics performance. Now manufactured in a new 55nm process technology, the GPU in the HD 3800 series delivers this performance with lower power consumption and at lower cost than previous generations. A new feature known as ATI Power Play actively reduces power consumption depending on loading.
It also incorporates the latest ATI Aviv HD Technology for enhanced Video display and features a built in UVD (Unified Video decoder) for the hardware accelerated decoding of Blu-ray and HD DVD content for both VC-1 and H.264 codecs, reducing CPU loading to a minimum. Support big-screen HDMI TVs via DVI to ATI exclusive HDMI dongle including built-in 5.1 surround audio and HD Video to enjoy Blu-ray or HD DVD movies playback or S-Video analog port for HDTVs.
HD3870 X2 series graphics cards are Microsoft Windows Vista Premium certified and supported by the ATI Catalyst® suite of software, ensuring customers have ongoing access to software updates for performance, stability and added features. Support for DirectX10.1 and SM 4.0 provides developers with access to enhanced programming techniques and new lighting effects.
Featuring the new CrossFireX technology, with two high speed connectors on each card allowing another HD3870 or Dual HD3870 X2 graphics cards to be daisy-chained together for enhanced performance when installed in a CrossFireX mainboard. As each card has two or four dual-link DVI connectors, this allows up to eight monitors to be used at the same time, or - with CrossFire enabled - two GPU¡¦s to provide a more powerful rendering solution.
This new generation of Enthusiasts Graphics family delivers The Ultimate Visual Experience through immersive HD gaming with DirectX® 10.1 and HD media playback offers the ideal solution for commercial productivity, gamers and video enthusiasts.
