We figured that less influential sites would like to know that AMD has two R600 prototype boards on the show.
We're talking about full-size, 12-inch boards with nice R600 XTX GPU and sixteen Samsung 32MB memory chips - that's right, whole Gigabutt of video memory connected to the GPU via that rumoured 512-bit memory interface. Or at least, there are some people in this industry who consider it as a rumour.
The GPU featured on the boards is not the final one (as we already disclosed), but this will be the first public showing of the product to journalists who are important enough. That is, unless you're a short Italian or tall Croatian and already saw them five months ago.
Regarding the CES boards, we haven't seen them, but look out later for our R600 line-up story. We know that the Green Goblin's minions back in Santa Clara, CA are watching this space with the utmost attention. µ
