AMD's next dual-GPU monster has started peeking its head out at some online retailers. German site Hardware-Infos says it spotted three listings for the Radeon HD 4870 X2 on Austrian price search engine Geizhals.at.
The listings have disappeared since then—not a surprising turn of events, seeing as AMD hasn't yet launched the card—but Hardware-Infos jotted down the prices. Reportedly, the cards sold for €457.20, €433.20 and €402.32. Those figures work out to $622-707, but the $499 U.S. launch price Hardware-Infos quotes seems more plausible considering the current relationship between prices on either side of the Atlantic.
The German site says AMD will set the Radeon HD 4870 X2 loose in the wild on August 12. We already tested the card last month, and it looks like an extremely potent—if notably power-hungry—high-end offering.
