    Logo sphère ATIATI has just reported results for the quarter ended February 28, 2005. Compared to the same period last year, sales have continue to progress to reach $608 Millions (+31%) and profits have reached $57 Millions (+14%). For the next quarter, ATI is expecting sales of $560 to $600 Millions instead of 491.5 Millions for the same period last year.



     Roadmap AMD Opteron

    AMDBoard has published a document which is apparently AMD’s roadmap for Opteron processors (released in February). According to this document, AMD is planning to release before the end of Q2, the Opteron 265/865, 270/870 and 275/875, respectively clocked at 1.8, 2.0 and 2.2 GHz and with a 95 Watts thermal envelope.


    Several other products will be released in Q3 with initially the 165, 170 and 175 mono processors also clocked at 1.8, 2.0 and 2.2 GHz. Then, the low power consumption (55 Watts) processors clocked at 1.6 and 1.8 GHz will hit the market, and finally in Q4 a 2 GHz version with a 55 Watts TDP and a very low power consumptions (30 Watts) clocked at 1.6 GHz will be released.

    The Opteron Dual core 2.4 GHz is only expected during Q1 2006. This information is however quite strange because we were expecting so far a processor clocked at this frequency from the beginning. For single core processors, AMD plans to release in Q3 an Opteron clocked at 2.8 GHz and in Q1 2006 another one clocked at 3.0 GHz.

    Of course, any information about the Opteron is also mainly true for the Athlon 64 (except for the HE / EE low power consumption version). So, our guess is that the Athlon 64 & Athlon 64 FX will follow the same evolution in the months to come.



     Test: ASUS CT-479

    Legit Reviews is the first to have tested the CT-479, the adaptor developed by ASUSTeK which permits to use a Pentium M with a Socket 478 motherboard. Tests have been made with a P4P800 SE, one of the two motherboards currently compatible with the P4P800-VM.


    Results are rather encouraging because with the last bios beta the input voltage is modifiable and the FSB is able to reach high levels (more than 200 MHz). Finally, the platform overall performances are superior to the one obtained with an i855 motherboard such as the DFI.

    This adaptor seems to be a very good product, even if it lacks a compatibility with a greater number of Socket 478 motherboards to be really perfect.



     Discreet X800XL for Sapphire

    Sapphire has officially released the Ultimate X800 XL PCI Express graphic card. Unlike Gigabyte, it isn’t a passive version like previous graphic cards of the Ultimate range. Indeed if the cooling system is ensured by a Zalman solution, Sapphire has chosen the discreet VF-700 and its minimum ventilation (1350 Rpm).


    Except for this aspect, the Sapphire Ultimate X800 XL is a standard X800 XL 256 MB clocked at 400/490 MHz. It features a VGA D-Sub and a DVI output. Are also included in the Full retail version, the following software PowerDVD 5, Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow and Prince of Persia The Sands of Time.

    After the NVIDIA nForce 4 the VIA K8T890 is the second available chipset for the Athlon 64 which supports PCI Express. Here is a full comparison of the two rival products!
