Radeon HD 2900 XTX: It's alive, but barely

Believe it or not, the Radeon HD 2900 XTX has once again reared its head -- this time on a per-vendor basis.

AMD originally scrapped all 1GB variants of Radeon HD 2900, according to ATI partners familiar with the Radeon roadmap.  The verbal announcement that there would be no 1GB cards came the same week DailyTech declared the XTX variant "doomed."

However, at Computex 2007 at least one vendor demonstrated a 1GB GDDR3 Radeon HD 2900, with plans for a GDDR4 version on the way. 

The 1GB cards will be labeled as "professional" Radeon HDs, though not under the FireGL  moniker.  These new cards will not carry the XTX moniker, though everything else about them is identical to the original ATI XTX roadmaps.

1GB Radeon 2900s will carry a premium of at least $200 at launch for the GDDR3 versions. No price is set on the GDDR4 variants.  In addition to the extra memory, the professional cards will also receive a small core clock increase and what we're told as "an unlocked professional feature set."

It's been long confirmed that NVIDIA Quadro and ATI FireGL extensions are present in non-professional GPUs.  Expect a mid-June launch for these renegade card manufacturers.
