The 1GB Sapphire Radeon HD3870 X2 couples the power of two HD3870 GPUs on one card to provide the muscle necessary to smoothly drive today's games with ease. And if you are a player that insists on the absolute cutting edge and top notch performance at any cost you can take advantage of CrossFireX and use two of these cards in tandem. - The Review

I've always wanted to try out one of these dual GPU cards, maybe one day I'll get a chance. I really like the ATi design over that of the Nvidia based dual GPU heat trap design, with having both GPU's on a single PCB it seems like it would be much easier to keep cool.

Oh, and they seem to be priced right as well.

Yeah - the price does seem good. Even since the review was released Monday the prices have come down more, and there are plenty of rebates... if you can tolerate them.

I'm playing with this card in Crossfire X with a single HD3870. Looks cool and boosts the performance, but still doesn't scale the way I would have assumed.
