ATI Technologies is preparing two graphics processors to be made using 0.11 micron process technology at TSMC. The new chips are likely to deliver higher performance and lower cost compared to processors manufactured using 0.13 micron fabrication process.
According to a report from DigiTimes, ATI will launch production of its code-named R430 and RV410 graphics processors this quarter. Both chips are likely to have micro-architecture similar to that used in today’s RADEON X800-series graphics processors and native support of PCI Express interconnection. Typically, ATI Technologies positions its “R” chips to serve high-end and performance-mainstream markets, while the “RV” graphics processors are intended for entry-level and mainstream segments.
