HDMI supported in RV550 & RV570XT is designated to X1900GT?!

By: Array

Theres been some news just recently from both HKEPC and The Inquirer regarding ATIs next lineup of graphics cards due for release in the coming months, some of it purely speculative of course but interesting nonetheless.

 

Also with thanks to HKEPC, below is a picture of ATI's RV550 based reference card.

 


Replacing old weapons, ATi is going to finalize the specification and designation of RV560/570 in the coming weeks. RV570 is to replace X1900GT with the same performance but a lower cost. RV570XT is probably designated to X1900GT, same with R580GT, or a new X1950 family. With regard to the previous ATi's roadmap from Gecube, sources indicate that RV560/570 are neither 12 Pixel Shader Processor nor products based on RV530 (Radeon X1600 family) plus CrossFire Compositing Engine. In addition, to complete with nVidia 80nm G73-B1, which supports HDMI Signal Mixing and is expected in production in Q4, ATi is going to release RV550 to give HDMI Signal Mixing support to HTCP.

DEAL OF THE DAY - Samsung DVDR145 DVD Recorder w/HDMI Output & DVD+R DL Recording for $197 Shipped!

By: Array

Deal of the Day details:

 

Offer: Standing less than 2.5 inches tall, Samsung's stylishly black DVD-R145 is one of the most powerful entertainment recording and playback devices available today. It offers the widest assortment of DVD recording compatibility, featuring DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, and re-writable DVD-RAM as well as Dual-Layer DVD+/-R--enabling you to store up to 8.5 GB of video on these two-sided discs. Additionally, the DVD-R145 provides a time-slip function when recording onto DVD-RAM discs--enabling you to pause or skip backwards/forwards through a recording that's active.

 

The DVD-R145 is also an "upconverting" DVD player, which boosts the standard 480 lines of resolution from a DVD disc up to a high-def 1080i (interlaced) picture. To produce an upconverted picture, your high-def TV must have an HDMI connection (and HDCP support)--the 720p/1080i choice is only available when using the HDMI cable (which is not included). Also note that the DVD-HD1080 is not a high-definition DVD player (i.e., not to be confused with Blu-Ray and HD-DVD players, which play specially formatted high definition discs), so it will work with your existing DVD library. Use coupon code: APEX145 to get the discount.
