Latest R600 Rumor Mill Rumblings
The Inquirer reports that their sources are indicating that ATI...er...make that AMD...will be strictly offering the next generation R600 GPU with GDDR-4 memory. Initially, two codenames were developed to distinguish between a GDDR-3 variant (UFO) and a GDDR-4 model (Pele). On top of news that the GPU will launch in February instead of January, the latest decision to opt for the latest GDR-4 memory should assure some exceptional performance especially with 1GB's worth of memory. How will this new GPU stack up against a G80-refresh (likely at 80u) with higher frequencies? Per usual, time will tell though we can be sure the Rumor Mill will have some interesting tidbits long before these GPU's launch.
