AMD's 4870 X2 launch this morning heralds the company's return to full competition across all segments of the graphics industry. At $549, the new dual-GPU/single-card solution isn't cheap, but the value it offers at that price point is surprisingly good, even as it delivers extremely competitive performance.The primary advantage of these types of dual-GPU/single-board solutions is twofold: First, they bring dual-GPU performance to motherboards that lack a second PCIe slot, and second, they allow dual-GPU configurations on chipsets that wouldn't otherwise allow it. This last is an NVIDIA-centric benefit, as that company only allows SLI solutions on its own chipsets, but it's still a recognized reason to consider multi-GPU boards.  [Comments...]
