Security for virtualized datacentres

AMD will indeed release its 'RV670' graphics chip on 19 November - as predicted - an analyst has claimed the company told him recently.

As yet, however, RV670's go-to-market branding remains unknown - some pundits have suggested ATI Radeon HD 2950 Pro - but American Technology Research's Doug Freedman last week told investors that the part will debut on 19 November. The part is a 55nm version of the existing 'R600' GPU core.

According to an ExtremeTech report, Freedman confirmed past reports that the two versions of RV670 due to be launched, 'Gladiator' and 'Revival', run at 825MHz and 750MHz, respectively.

"The main difference between the two will be Gladiator's adoption of GDDR 4 memory and an improved memory interface - 2.4GHz vs. 1.8GHz," he wrote.

Last week, AMD tacitly confirmed RV670 would launch mid-November, but didn't then specify a date - it's official line has always been simply that the chip would arrive in Q4 2007.

At the same time, AMD is expected to announce 'Spider', a gaming platform based around a pair of RV670 GPUs, AMD's RD790 chipset and its Phenom quad-core processor family.
