ATI Radeon HD 5870 X2 Will Have a TDP of 376W?

AMD ATI GPU - Radeon Graphics

From FudZilla, AMD is working on the Radeon HD 5870 X2, the dual-GPU version of the Radeon HD 5870.

And one of the major problem is the power consumption: Radeon HD 5870 X2 has a TDP of 376W. This sounds logic when we know that the Radeon HD 5870 has a TDP of 188W.

From Geeks3D’s TDP Database, the TDP of the current Radeon HD 4870 X2 is only of 286W. That’s nearly an increase of 100 Watts! I understand better why AMD wants to limit the effect of FurMark 😉
