The Radeon HD 3870 X2 boasts dual 3870 processors, 1024MB of DDR3 memory and a clock speed of 775 MHz. The HD 3870 X2's dual processors work harmoniously to produce over 1 teraFLOPS of GPU computer power. Go ahead and Game Hard.

The latest Blu-ray and HD DVD movies play effortlessly at full 1080p and digital content can be fully enjoyed with HDMI and built in 5.1 surround sound. Upgrade to even greater 3D performance quickly and easily thanks to plug-and-play ATI CrossFireX technology that supports up to four GPUs.

All Diamond video cards carry the Diamond guarantee of quality assurance. Unlike many cards that are simply first to market, Diamond carefully tests and retests every new model for its ratio of performance to reliability. Diamond is legendary in the PC video card business for its less than 1 percent return rate versus an industry average of approximately 10 percent.
