    This is the 5870×2/2970, 100%.
    Take a look at these pictures:
    Look at the size comparison pictures.
    The 5950 has a line through it.
    The 5970 has a clean body.
    The 5950 has a noticeable fan air export passage.
    The 5970 has a round lining around the fan intake.

    Now look at the pictures of this card.
    There’s no doubt.
    This is the 5970 and its benchmarks.

    All that’s left to find out is the release date.
    From my research, most rumors say that the X2 cards will be out in Mid-November. But then again, there’s rumors on vr-zone saying that the 5900 series will be released in Spring 2010.

    Personally, I’m done trying to hold on. I locked $750 into a savings account, and I’m going to let it come when it comes.

    okay not that I am disagreeing with the fact that the actual physical card is a 5970, but the benchmarks are not from a 5970. The 5870 has 1600 shaders, and the 5970 was set to have 3200. If you can find the pictures that were previously posted here with the benchmarks on them, the catalyst control center say 1600 shaders. Either this is a hoax, or ATI really has poor drivers yet. Perhaps they are taking nvidia’s tactic, use a card that functions similarly, and raise hype with a fake card?

    @bruno747 – If you look at a screen of 4870×2 GPU-Z it shows 800 shaders when infact it has 1600 shaders (800 in each GPU but GPU-Z only shows shaders on one GPU). http://xtreview.com/images/hd4870z2cf/gpu-z%20HD%20487×2%20cf.png

    Same goes for this upcoming card and why GPU-Z is showing 1600 shaders instead of 3200.

    Just want to ask, why is it 5970 shown in pic above have different appearance compared to stock ATI 5970? The stock 5970 have sharp edges and while the above pic shows it have curvy with lines edges? Plus, it looks cool!!!
