The card is based on the RV570LE chip and it will end up clocked at 500MHz core and 1200MHz memory. The card will end up equipped with 256MB GDDR 3 memory.
It is set to cost $169 but it could end up even cheaper. The card should be publicly available in early February and the final driver is expected any day now.
The final samples became available earlier this month and this is also the card that supports cable-less Crossfire. This will bring Crossfire with two nice products to sub $300 market as ATI takes the fight to Nvidia's Geforce 7900GS. µ
