Rumors about Radeon R600

* ATI's R600 is expected to launch in early 2007.
* The R600 is estimated to be the largest GPU ever made with a rumored 500+ million transistor count. Production based on an 80 nm process with ATI having 65 nm/55 nm clearly in sight. [2]
* 64 unified shader pipelines, 32 TMUs, and 32 ROPs.
* 512Bit "HyperScaled" - MemoryController (external)
* Its design is similar to the Xbox 360's GPU "Xenos", with the distinction of being fully DX10 compliant. However, The R600 will not feature the 10 MB daughter-die embedded DRAM framebuffer.
* The R600 will feature support the GDDR4 memory interface with an 512 bit bus and 1024 MB RAM ( 512 bits / 32 bits per chip = 16 chips* 64 MB/chips = 1024 MB) running higher than the X1950XTX's memory clock speeds of 1.0 GHz (2.0 GHz effective). Such a wide memory bus paired with 1.0 GHz GDDR4 result in 128 GB/s of bandwidth.
* Designed "from the ground up," according to sources at ATI, for DX10, however it will be backwards compatible with DX9.
* Support for Windows Vista.
* PCI-E Interface.
* HDMI connector (may have support for Displayport).
* Anandtech reports that the next generation of GPUs will range in power consumption from 130W to 300W. This increase in power consumption will make for higher-wattage Power Supply Units (to the 1 kW-1.2 kW range) and/or the addition of internal, secondary PSUs solely for powering the GPUs.
* Will overtake the X1950XTX as the most powerful card capable of Crossfire without a Master Card

How many cards come out with the R600?
G80 come out with 2, SO just want to know about R600.
i am hoping it come with 2 or 3, cuz i dont want to pay 600-700$ for a VideoCard. Only if i have to.

I would speculate there will be 2 versions of the R600.

A Highend version(XTX) and a Lowend Version.(XT/PRO)

Most probably. Ati would want to get them out as soon as possible just like nvidia, producing the least number of models while maintaining market share.
