Leak reveals ATI 80nm product plans

Roadmap

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

ATI will offer 80nm GPUs across the board following the process' debut in September, with only the top-of-the-range left out, a leaked roadmap from graphics card maker GeCube has revealed.

The slide comes courtesy of Chinese-language site HKEPC. At the top of the list we have the RV560/RV570 variants, both with 12 pixel pipelines. In the mainstream market, the RV505 and RV516 GPUs will offer just four pixel pipelines and operate an external 128-bit, dual-channel memory bus. A single-channel, 64-bit memory bus version of the RV505, dubbed the RV505CE, will be pitched at the value segment.

All five chips will support CrossFire configurations and incorporate ATI's Avivo image-enhancement process. They all support DirectX Shader Model 3.0 and hardware-accelerated decoding of the H.264 hi-definition video codec.

They're all PCI Express parts, but so far only the RV505 and RV516 have won formal PCI Express certification, according to the PCI-E SIG website.

ATI last week denied its 80nm release plans had been delayed and pointed to a September launch for parts based on the new process. ®
