ATI Technologies Return of the King: AMD HD 5970 Leaks, Looks Poised to Seize Performance Crown

New card will likely be the most powerful solution on the market when it lands late this month.

Alienbabeltech has leaked what may be the first images of the new card and it looks to be a beast in every way. Measuring 13.5 inches (34.29 cm) long, the 5970 has no reason to feel insecure -- after all, it's endowed with presumably the longest PCB on a mass-produced graphics card to date. It's reportedly a struggle to fit the card inside even full size tower cases like the Antec 1200.

The leaked card was perhaps running the leaked Catalyst 9.11 drivers, as the version number in CPU-Z was listed as 8.14.10.708 for the Direct3D driver, versus 8.14.10.700 on Catalyst 9.10. Benchmarks showing the card trouncing the NVIDIA GTX 295 in performance were aired then quickly removed at AMD's request. If these benchmarks holds true, it appears that AMD will wrest the title of having the most powerful single-card solution, at least temporarily, from NVIDIA.

A few scraps of information remained after much of the info was pulled -- apparently the fan will run at 4700 rpm under load. And the card uses one 8-pin and one 6-pin power connector. Pictures also remained posted

According to previously released information, the card will launch late this month and will likely hold the performance crown until NVIDIA launches its DirectX 11 offerings. The card is expected to feature 2 GB of GDDR5 memory and a thrid-party PCI-E bridge, similar to Radeon HD 4800 X2 cards. DisplayPort, DVI, and HDMI connections are all included, as would be expected.

It'll hold the performance crown *until* some product that is still in vapor status is released by nV? Give me a break. Talk about slant.

Impressive, but nothing to make me regret buying a pair of 5870's instead.
