The latest AMD ATI roadmaps reveal details of more DirectX 10 graphics cards
has just finished its briefing on the upcoming AMD ATI Radeon launches. The company has three major launches over the next few months: codenamed
, ATI's ultra-high-end Radeon X1950 successor, has a production date scheduled for February 2007. The card will launch at or around the Cebit 2007 convention in mid-March. Shipments will follow shortly after.
Our latest roadmaps indicate
will support unified shaders and GDDR4 or GDDR3 memory. GDDR3 versions of the card running revision "A12" silicon appear to be
making rounds in the blogsphere
, and select press can even take a sneak peak of the card under embargo here at CES. The final silicon for
will be "A13."
A GDDR4 version of the card will be the flagship launch product. Clock frequencies on any
card have not been set officially yet, and will not appear on marketing material until just a few weeks before the launch.
The company has also added the
GPUs to the roadmap. In the past, ATI has used lower number codenames to denote entry-level products. We would suspect
would be the entry-level
would be the mid-range chipset. The Radeon roadmap puts both of these products on the shelf before June 2007.
-series GPUs from ATI are compatible with DirectX 10.

RE: Does this not seem like a late launch date?

Please explain how Sony has supplied an all in one home entertainment system, why Linux would matter in this equation of anything related to entertainment, why installing Vista on the 360 would matter, and how Xbox Live being far superior to what Sony offers doesn't somehow give MS an advantage in bringing everything together right now. Also, how does Sony combat the fact MS is bringing IPTV to the 360, which makes it a DVR, Media Center Extender (face it, almost everyone who owns a PC has Windows, so this puts MS in a good position and makes the current philosophy behind the 360s design just right the way it is), game machine, DVD player (HD-DVD if you want), and an on-demand video service machine? Last I checked, the PS3 doesn't do as well as the 360 in serving as a streaming device from my PC for video, audio, and other media. Yes, I own both, and yes, the 360 has a better interface and is a better media extender. From my own experience, the 360 is just a better machine aside from the HD video aspect (meaning you get Bluray by default for one, HD DVD add on for the other), and I certainly don't need Linux on anything other then my PC should I chose. As a side note, the games aren't that impressive for the PS3, nor is the controller, but I bought it as a 499 dollar Bluray player that happens to play games, so no biggie. PS - Bluray had to many good movies coming to it or out for me not to have the ability to play them, and the 20GB PS3 is a great value for playing them.

I agree on many of your points. MSFT definitely has the MCE Extender thingy down to a science. Since I don't game alot, my purchase decision was down to mce extender vs. blu-ray. Actually, I didn't find out about being able to install Linux until after I bought it and was doing some websurfing. In the end, I bought the PS3 because of its digital hdmi connection. Personally, I can tell the difference between component video and hdmi video. Sony has never allowed other companies to use its technology. I knew this going into the purchase. But I wholly expect an extender type function to exist between Sony's VAIO computers. The PSP and the PS3 already connect to one another; its only logical they would do the same for its personal computers. So, in the end, it appeared to me I would be getting more for my money than buying the XBox 360. I am sure had the 360 included a hdmi out before i bought my ps3 i would have bought it instead. being able to treat the ps3 as a desktop computer was an unexpected bonus for me. true, linux isn't nearly as friendly as a pc, but having all these different functions in one small box all me to keep my pc turned off more often than before i got the ps3
