|Rumors and Preliminary Information about Radeon R600
 Launch date
R600 was reported to launch between the end of January 2007 to end of Q1 2007.  .
R600 silicon revision A12 (GDDR3 version)  and A13 (GDDR4 version)  is reportedly taped-out. 
R600 has undergone several delays and revisions for technical reasons, such as serious bugs inside the GPU itself, PCB re-design processes (see here), and so on.  
ATI is targeting February 14 (Valentine's Day) for sending R600 review samples to the hands of the press. 
 Possible naming and lineup
The graphics cards featuring the R600 GPU will likely to be named as Radeon X2000 series graphics cards.
Some leaked drivers over the Internet hinted the existence of X2200 and X2400.
|The latest rumor out there revealed that R600 is 80nm process technology and is entering mass production soon . R600's Z no-AA performance is 2.5x, FP16 blending & filtering performance is 2.7x, FP32 blending & filtering performance is 3.9x, FP16 filtering performance is 8x of R580. R600 final clocks could be at 814MHz and has 64 unified shaders. [This could imply 32 ROPs]. According to the rumor, it seems that low end RV610 will be on 65nm process, Digital PWM, 8 layers PCB, 256MB/128MB 64bit DDR2. For the mainstream RV630, it will be on 65nm process, bi-directional PWM for GPU and uni-directional PWM for memories, support 2x256MB 128bit GDDR4.|
