ATI "RV560" Details Unveiled news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages

Following the launch of ATI's first 80nm product last week (the RADEON X1950 Pro) based on RV570, ATI will soon release RV560 (also 80nm) which will show up in the form of a RADEON X1650XT.


The DailyTech have managed to get a few details on it for us.


ATI previously released its 80nm RV570 Radeon X1950 Pro mid-range graphics card catered towards the $199 MSRP market. Joining the Radeon X1950 Pro will be a second 80nm product known as RV560.


The RV560 Radeon X1650XT is expected to launch next week with a core clock 575 MHz unlike the previously reported 450 MHz. It appears ATI is getting better yields than previously expected, although the Radeon X1650XT was originally expected for an end of August or beginning of September launch. Radeon X1650XT graphics cards will feature 256MB of GDDR3 clocked at 675 MHz on a 128-bit memory interface. The Radeon X1650XT is expected to have 24 pixel-shaders, 12 pipelines and 8 vertex shaders. Similar to the Radeon X1950 Pro, the X1650XT will also feature an internal connection for CrossFire.
