Another 80nm product joins the lineup

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.

There will be a variety of output configurations for Radeon X1650XT cards. These output configurations include dual dual-link DVI and S-Video, dual single-link DVI and S-Video and lastly dual-link DVI, VGA and S-Video. HDCP will be enabled on Radeon X1650XT graphics cards as well. It’s also theoretically possible to integrate an HDMI output, though that will be up to the graphics card manufacturers.

Radeon X1650XT is expected to launch next week with an MSRP of $149 to take on NVIDIA's 7600GT.

Digit-Life already have some benchmarks publicated on their 3D Digest showing the X1650XT, and it is not doing good, losing to 7600GT in almost all benchmarks.

Can´t say if they are using the final card, but the frequencies are diferent from the stated above.

Take a look here:

Doesn't show an X1650XT, just an X1650 Pro which is a totally different GPU.

Click on a game, and you will see both.
The X1650XT is not in card list, but it´s on graphs.

Nice find. In the graph in your link the X1650XT is faster than both the 7600GT and 7900GS, so if this benchmarks turns out to be representative then I don't see a problem with it's performance!

The X1650XT wins in COD2 and 3Dmark2006 by less then 1%
In all other benchmarks (there are a lot more in their digest the 7600GT wins.
