What a monster! Do you know if they planning on a mid budget solution in 2007? I don't even think this card fits in my case
ati/amd releases r600 details (mmmm specs)
the 12.5 inch is the oem for vendors the retail r600 will be about 9.5
(thats an inch or 2 shorter than the 8800gtx)
At the top of the DirectX 10 chain, is the ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT. The AMD ATI Radeon HD 2900-series features 320 stream processors, over twice as many as NVIDIAâ€™s GeForce 8800 GTX. AMD couples the 320 stream processors with a 512-bit memory interface with eight channels. CrossFire support is now natively supported by the AMD ATI Radeon HD 2900-series; the external CrossFire dongle is a thing of the past.
The R600-based ATI Radeon HD 2900-series products also support 128-bit HDR rendering. AMD has also upped the ante on anti-aliasing support. The ATI Radeon HD 2900-series supports up to 24x anti-aliasing. NVIDIAâ€™s GeForce 8800-series only supports up to 16x anti-aliasing. AMDâ€™s ATI Radeon HD 2900-series also possesses physics processing
AMDâ€™s RV630-based products will carry the ATI Radeon HD 2600 moniker with Pro and XT models. The value-targeted RV610-based products will carry the ATI Radeon HD 2400 name with Pro and XT models as well
wow what a monster card ,now they are tinkering away with the R650 and next year we will see the all amd r700
