Said to be available in both 1GB and 2GB versions, the Radeon HD 4870 X2 will utilize GDDR5 DRAM chips and will require extra power through two (one 6- and one 8-pin) PCIe connectors. The card is expected to be launched next month and cost $499.

eh, its probably like the GX2 though, that 2GB is actually 1GB per GPU. Still better then the 512 the regular 4870s come with.
