ATI RD600 Preliminary Info
HKEPC once again throws caution and NDA to the wind and have posted some preliminary details regarding ATI's next generation RD600 chipset. Based around Intel's upcoming Conroe processor, the chipset supports a 1333MHz FSB, dual-channel DDR2 1066, 48 PCI-E lanes, and have a whopping 3 PCI-E slots. The third slot is supposedly for a third GPU to act as a dedicated physics processor. How fast will that GPU have to be in order to perform on par or better than Ageia's PhysX discrete PPU? Per usual, time will tell and we'll reserve judgment until we have a board in the lab.
