Posted on Friday, Apr 07 2006 @ 08:01 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
ATI nor NVIDIA are expected to release full DirectX 10 lineups this year, but we can expect them to launch higher-performance graphics card this autumn.
ATI, which is expected to release its code-named R600 GPU late this year or early next, is preparing a breed of new chips based on the X1000 micro-architecture for its fall product lineup refresh, according to sources close to the company. In addition, ATI is projected to quietly roll-out less expensive versions of the current products. The new chips will serve high-end, performance-mainstream, mainstream and entry-level markets, providing either new levels of performance, or much lower pricing compared to today.
More details over at X-bit Labs.
