     ATI R430 and R480 to be released soon?

    The PCI SIG has updated their PCI Express product validated list, and it includes several new products. So far, only Intel’s chipsets were present, but now the NVIDIA nForce 4 and ATI RS400 and RS480, respectively dedicated to Pentium 4 and Athlon 64, have also been included.

    For graphic processors, this list already included the GeForce 6800 GPU and the GeForce PCX. The GeForce PCX is based on the GeForce FX with the AGP to PCI Express HSI bridge. New NIVIDA products also show up like the 6600, but also the NV41M and the PCI Express MXM graphic module. These two products have been designed or laptops.

    ATI only present with the X600 so far add new products: the X300, X700 and X800 PCI Express. For laptops are included as well the Mobility Radeon X600, M22 and M26. These products have not been announced yet, but the M22 will be the laptop version of the X300 and the M26 the future NV43M competitor.

    Are also included in this list two new products: the R430 and R480. Based on the R423 (X800 PCI Express), they should respectively have a 110 nm and 130 nm fabrication process. These products are apparently ready to be released as they are present in this page. The R430’s target is to reduce high end products prices and the R480 should increase frequencies compared to the R423. It seems that ATI increase easier their frequencies in 130 nm rather than in 110 nm thanks to a better process at TSMC.

    If ATI and NVIDIA validate their components, ATI doesn’t not unlike NVIDIA validate their reference card anymore. So ATI’s reference cards aren’t included in this list. This situation brings us to another question: how is it possible to validate a chip without validating the graphic card including this chip?
