Three kings including the XL

ATI will introduce three Radeon HD 2900 cards on the 14th of May. According to a document we've seen the most powerful one is called the Radeon HD 2900 XT 1024MB DDR4. Its TDP, thermal design power of the GPU, is an astonishing 180 Watts, while the whole board dissipates 225 Watts.

The second card is the Radeon HD 2900 XT 512 MB GDDR3 and its GPU's TDP is 160W due to slightly lower clock speed and the whole board again dissipates 225 Watts.

The third and final card is the Radeon HD 2900 XL, a cheaper version of the marchitecture with 512 MB GDDR3 and its GPU will dissipate 130 Watts, while the board will dissipate 205 Watts. We believe that the power components on the card gets really hot, 82 degrees C on the outside of the cooler is what we've already seen.
