     R600, RV630, RV610: the last infos

    Since our last news published during the CeBIT and regarding ATI's future GPUs, things haven't really changed for the Radeon X2900 also known as R600. We have, however, obtained some new information from a reliable source.

    The product release would apparently be postponed. If it was scheduled in May, it would have been postponed mid-May. Also, the release of the XTX with 1 GB of GDDR4 would still be uncertain. Pictures of the beta OEM version, are available from this page. These pictures show nothing more than photos already published except for the presence of GDDR4 Samsung 0.9ns (1.1 GHz) chips like the X1950 XTX. As the date of the chip is January (this version isn't exactly recent), we can't say if the final product will look like this one.

    As regard to the X2900 XT 512 MB, we noted that the product price has already been reduced from $499 to $399. This is closer to a GeForce 8800 GTS than a GeForce 8800 GTX. We have to hope that this new position isn't due to lower performances but rather to an aggressive price policy compared to Nvidia's offer.

    The RV630 and RV610 are also delayed. Indeed, mass availability won't happen before June despite the initial same release date as the R600.

    We remind you that when the R600 had officially been postponed in March being scheduled for this month, AMD explained that this was only a strategic decision to release a whole line of products compatible with DirectX 10. This hasn't worked out too well...
