ATI to Launch X1900 'next month'

post #1 of 14

ATI will announce - but not necessarily ship - its 90nm R580 graphics chip next month as the Radeon X1900.
The X1900 is down in the document as sporting 48 pixel-processing pipelines and higher clock speeds than the X1800 - speculation from a number of websites suggests around 700MHz.

So we know it will have 48 of something. Im still not sure if its 16 pipes that can process 48 pixels or 48 pipes...
Very nice!

I seriously doubt it's 48 pipes, that'd be a 450+ million transistor chip the size of a dollar bill.

Like the Itanium?

So I guess itll be 16 pipes that process 48 pixels per clock or something like that.

Hmm, looks like the next card after this one will be the big leap.

I think the jump from FX series to 6 series, and the 9000 series to X800 series was really big, doubled the power.

Then, 7800gtx was a pretty big leap but I dont think quite as big as that one.


I am HOPING that the x1900 and the G71 really push the envelope. We will be able to tell by looking at F.E.A.R benchmarks, I am thinking. Right now, even an SLI 7800GTX system is pretty much crippled by fear with the eyecandy on. Soft shadows is the devil!

The 7800GTX is more than twice as fast as two 6800Ultras... The X1900 and whatever nVidia is going to call the G71 are just little speed bumps as they continue to try and one-up the other. The next big deal is gonna be the DirectX 10 cards (the R600 and G80 I guess).

too bad youll all your old games (haha, FEAR, an Old game) will be rendered with a software layer. Bah.

I understand that its another double jump but I don't think it really provided the boost that the 6800/x800 series had when they first came out. *shrug* maybe they have, I dunno, just what I seem to be seeing.

Anyhow, I am hoping the G71 and X1900 series go beyond expectations just because I don't want to jump on the Dx10 bandwagon quite yet. Especially because it will require the jump to vista, too. So....600 card + 200 OS? Yeah, eff that.
