ATI Radeon X1900 GT slips out early

Week ahead of time

Security for virtualized datacentres

ATI's upcoming Radeon X1900 GT GPU appears to have slipped out early. Boards based on the chip aren't expected to arrive until 9 May, but at least one store from the US retail chain Best Buy put a handful of the units on sale this week, an online report alleges.

And Digit-Life.com has the pictures to prove it. The box-shot shows the board ships with 256MB of GDDR 3 SDRAM clocked, the site claims, to 594MHz (1.188GHz effective). It adds that the core runs at 575MHz during bouts of 3D acceleration and a more power-friendly 500MHz when doing 2D work.

ATI's plan to launch the X1900 GT emerged last month. The part is said to be a cut-down version of the X1900 XT, reducing the pixel shader count from 48 to 36, and reducing the maximum memory size supported from 512MB to 256MB. ®
