AFTER SEVERAL TEASERS, the guys from VR-Zone finally published their world exclusive - the first picture of next-generation Radeon in flesh, errr, silicon.
The pictured product is the highest end of the X2K line-up with full 12-inch PCB featuring R600XTX GPU with 1GB of GDDR-4 memory on it. We don't know the reaction of OnceRed-NowGreenTM PR team, but since VR-Zone sadly does not have a relationship with DAAMIT, not much can be done.
But then again, you have to cool down the GPU which works at a default clock speed where no GPU has gone before. This also goes for highest-clocked memory and massive 140.8 GB/s of bandwidth, leaping over 8800GTX by almost 55GB/s or a massive 39 per cent.
We wonder what the scores will be in really high resolutions with high levels of Full-Scene AntiAliasing and Anisotropic Filtering, where the amount of memory and available bandwidth are two key factors.
The launch will happen in Amsterdam in a run-up to CeBIT, as we first published here. µ
