BY THE TIME WHEN I AM in Taiwan ATI will introduce its X600 and X300 cards as we suggested here. ATI attacks PCI express market with native cards hard.

Still we have a few details over and above those details about those cards. The top end mainstream card will go with the name Radeon X600XT with 500 MHz core and 370 MHz - 740 MHz DDR memory and VIVO option.

The little bit slower clocked card based on the RV380 core will be called the Radeon X600PRO and will be clocked at a 400MHz core and 300MHz - 600MHz DDR memory. There will be two configurations - 128MB and 256MB.

The entry level market will get two new horses to clop along on their hooves - a X300 card without suffixes clocked at modes such as a 325MHz core and 200MHz - 400 MHz DDR memory. This card will use a 128 bit memory interface.

And the Radeon X300SE will be PCI Express for the value market and will use similar clock speeds as the X300 non SE but with a 64 bit memory interface.

ATI and its partners will be ready to ship in June after the formal announcement of PCI Express platforms by, guess what? The almighty Intel herself.

ATI is playing some interesting games as it didn't invite any press to that launch. O boy, o boy ATI surely loves us to death. They wish. µ
