ATi Tapes out 40nm GPU

Set to be a 9600GT killer

ATi is busy in the R&D labs on their newest GPU. ATi have taped out their 40nm part in pre production silicone. Surprisingly this is not going to be a flagship part but a mid range part to compete with the 9600GT

 

Fudo over at Fudzilla says that this 40nm GPU should have a 256bit memory interface and feature Qimonda GDDR5.

ATi Tapes out 40nm GPU

This is a transitional product and it will help ATI to get easier from 55nm to 40nm and we learned that it should end up faster than RV770PRO, Radeon HD 4850 card, but its job is to compete Nvidia's Geforce 9600GT and it completely leaves it in the dust.

 

The card does use GDDR5 from troubled Quimonda and ATI is playing with IDGV1G-05A1F1C-40X GDDR5 at 900MHz. We still believe that the card has a 256-bit memory interface and with GDDR5 memory, this looks like a powerful combination.
