We already told you that this will be one big, hot chip but we don't think many people expected 500+ million transistors.
This is just a single piece of the puzzle of unveiling this big crazy chip. Don't forget that we heard will dissipate 250+ Watts of power and will also be really fast in both DirectX 9 and 10 games.
We hope there won't be any additional delays of this hot chip, which will be the first big and powerful graphic chip unveiled by AMD.
Here is what we've garnered about the R600 so far:
R600 to clock at more than 700MHz
ATI's R600 will consume over 250W
ATI's R600 delayed until next year
ATI's R600 has 64 real pipes
R600 has new super dooper cooler
No 65 nanometre graphics likely this year
ATI's R600 is a 80 nanometre chip
