New product advisory update reveals details of the upcoming RV570
has received an ATI product advisory that reveals a couple of details on the upcoming RV570 GPU. ATI’s
upcoming RV570 GPU is expected to arrive as the Radeon X1950
with 12 pipelines and 36 pixel shaders
. The ATI product advisory update states that board partners are currently receiving RV570XT ASICs. Final RV570XT ASICs is the A12 stepping. Reference boards are available from ATI beginning September 19th, 2006. ATI’s Radeon X1950 Pro reference board is clocked at 580 MHz and 1.40 GHz for core and memory respectively.
HDCP support for Radeon X1950 Pro graphics cards is optional and not required by ATI, though the reference board is HDCP compliant. ATI add-in board partners can purchase the necessary EEPROMs with preprogrammed PID keys directly from ATI if it wishes to implement HDCP compliance on its Radeon X1950 Pro products. The product advisory update makes no mention if built by ATI Radeon X1950 Pro products will have HDCP compliance or not.
Native CrossFire support will make its debut with Radeon X1950 and require an internal CrossFire bridge interconnect. The internal CrossFire bridge interconnect is produced by Molex and is required to be included in all shipping Radeon X1950 Pro products.
Three different video output configurations will be supported for Radeon X1950 Pro graphics cards. This includes dual dual-link DVI + S-video, dual-link DVI + single-link DVI + S-video and dual-link DVI + VGA + S-video configurations. The video output configuration is up to the add-in board partner as ATI doesn’t recommend any particular video output configuration.
Expect the product to launch "no earlier than October 5th, 2006," though a mid-October launch is more likely. Pricing on ATI Radeon X1950 Pro based cards is expected to fill in the slot right below ATI’s
recently introduced Radeon X1900XT 256MB
and eventually replace the current 36 pixel shader Radeon X1900GT.
