ATI Readies New R430, RV410 Graphics Chips

Postby Apoptosis » Fri Jul 09, 2004 9:41 am

Not any details on exactly what these cores can do, but I'm sure we will soon find out! ;)
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.

These will be the PCI Express yes? If so, very interesting. Can't wait for some benchmarks. hehe

I wonder if these will actually be native PCI-x.

Just a quicky PCI-x and PCI-Expresss are not the same thing PCI-x is a 133mhz extention to the PCI standard.

eh, ya, ya... So you caught me in a lazy moment. :) I'll be sure to type out PCI-Express 16x when referring to the new vid card spot from now on as not to confuse anyone... 8)
