A little birdy handed me some information about the new Radeon 8500 MAXX from ATi - As far as I know, this is what you can consider scoop. Take a look at it now, because I don't know how long this page will be staying up for, once ATi find out about it.
I've posted the full spec list, details and a picture of the new graphics card in the New Products section of our forums. The internal document also includes bits and pieces of information about the highly anticipated R300.
More information in the New Products Forum.
