- Two high-performance GPUs working simultaneously on a single card?dramatically raising the bar for single-card performance
- 48 pixel pipes, 16 vertex shaders, 76.8 GB per second of memory bandwidth and 24 billion texels per second of fill rate on a single card
- 1GB of fast GDDR3 video memory on a single card
- Dual dual-link DVI support for high-definition, widescreen flat panel displays that support resolutions up to 2560x1600 for an ultra-realistic HD gaming experience
