Get your contemplating hat on and drool bucket close as a Chinese site has leaked a first press photo of AMD's upcoming Radeon HD 6870 graphics card. Expected to be launched later this month, the new Radeon is powered by the 40nm Barts (XT) GPU and features DirectX 11 support.
The Radeon HD 6870 takes up two slots and has a 256-bit memory interface, 1GB of GDDR5 VRAM, the third-generation Unified Video Decoder (UVD), AMD HD3D technology for 3D gaming, CrossFireX support, and the Eyefinity multi-monitor solution. The card also provides no less than five display outputs - two DVI, one HDMI 1.4, two mini DisplayPort 1.2, so it seems capable of running five monitors simultaneously. Pretty sweet right?
Also it can clearly be seen from the design below of the 6870 that it will be as long as the reference design of 5850.
