Alienware adopts 4870 X2

Dell's high-end gaming division, Alienware, has announced that it will be adopting AMD's new Radeon HD 4870 X2 graphics card effective immediately. The card combines two GPUs into one board, and features 2GB of DDR5 RAM as well as DirectX 10.1 support; maximum performance is rated at 2.4 teraflops. Due to its size the card is only being offered in the company's three desktop systems, the Area-51, Area-51 ALX and Aurora.

Custom orders have the option of mounting two 4870 X2s together in a CrossFireX setup, producing the equivalent of a quad-SLI configuration. Aurora machines start at $1,099, while Area-51 and Area-51 ALX machines begin at $1,699 and $4,699. The dual-card option is extremely expensive however, adding $1,100 to the price of a PC.
