I did found a rare video card from Amazon.com. It was very rare and very limited edition (not lot of them out there) It is based on Thati  LE (same GPU found on Radeon 7950 and 7970)  They built with this GPU cut down and twice powerful than 7870. . I did saw this video card that has 1536 pipelines and base clock at 925 MHz and boost at 975 MHz . Onboard memeroy rated at 1.5 GHz x4 equal to 6 GHz. It is 2 GB DDR with GDDR5 video card. It is called Radeon 7870 XT. I did read the few reviews about this card. Very impressive and double fps and twice faster than orginal 7870. It sitting between 7870 and 7950. It was close performance as to 7950. It use 185 watts to plug in dual 6 pin on card.  I did ordered it on Amazon.con last Sunday night. I never heard of that.. My best guess was very few retail store online  got that as extra specail and very limited edition.

I did got the package today and installed Radeon 7870 XT in my PC. Everything went smooth and very clear picture. I can say that I was glad found a limited edition Radeon 7870 XT.  It did feed by my PSU 750 Watts with 80 Plus Gold (dont need a upgrade 850 watts PSU)  It is plenty power and extra watts for overclock. I hope Radeon 7870 XT will hold on for few years .
