RD600 to Have 3 PCIe 16X Slots
The Inquirer writes that ATi's upcoming Conroe chipset, codenamed RD600, will have no less than 3 PCIe 16X slots; 2 for CrossFire, 1 for Physics Acceleration. The RD600, tentatively named ATi Xpress 3200 Intel Edition, is obviously aimed at enthusiasts and is expected to debut later this year. It will sport a 1333Mhz front side bus, Dual Channel DDR2-1066 and automatic PCIe overclocking when certain ATi cards are detected. The word at the rumor mill is that it will be quite the overclocker too, thanks in part to a memory clock that is independent from the front side bus.
