Sapphire reveals dual-GPU Radeon X1950 Pro

Sapphire dual-GPU X1950

Third-party vendor Sapphire has been testing a new, custom version of the Radeon X1950 Pro. Codenamed "The Godfather," the new card melds two 1950 Pros onto the same board, producing results similar to separate units in a CrossFire SLI setup. This is despite the Godfather using a single x16 PCIe connection. This may actually prove extremely attractive to power users however, since Sapphire memos indicate that two Godfathers can be linked via CrossFire, creating the equivalent of a quad-1950 setup. The first public demonstration of the card should be at the Consumer Electronics Show, scheduled for January 8th to the 11th in Las Vegas. [Via DailyTech]
