AMD Lets Partners to Create Dual-Chip ATI Radeon HD 4770 Graphics Cards
ATI, graphics business unit of Advanced Micro Devices, did not let all of its partners to roll-out factory-overclocked graphics cards based on ATI Radeon HD 4770 (RV740) graphics processing units (GPUs) and recently admitted that it could not supply enough of such chips due to production issues. However, the company claims that a dual-chip ATI Radeon HD 4770 graphics board is actually a good idea.
“A dual ASIC board utilizing the ATI Radeon HD 4770 chip is a great concept idea. This would be up to our partners to bring to market,” said Patrick Moorhead, vice president of advanced marketing at AMD, in an interview with Technologizer web-site.ATI Radeon HD 4770 X2 graphics card would offer performance on par with ATI Radeon HD 4850 X2 that is only available from Sapphire Technologies and which cannot be bought from every retail or online store. Moreover, dual-chip ATI Radeon HD 4770 would be considerably cheaper to manufacture thanks to less complex power supply circuitry as well as 128-bit memory bus (vs. 256-bit on the Radeon HD 4850).
