HKEPC posted a bunch of information about ATI's upcoming RD600 chipset which supports Intel's Conroe processor.
This product is targeted on enthusiastic user, supporting 1333MHz FSB, Dual Channel DDR2-1066 and providing Split Channel Mode to lower the latency. From the internal testing, a maximum of 1600MHz was reported in the over clock mode with A13 version, which has 6 PCB layers. In addition, the memory clock is independent to the FSB. It sounds good to the fans of over clocking.

ATi RD600 also provides Automatic PCIe Over clocking technology, which is similar to the Boostlink function of nVidia nForce 590SLi. When X1800 or X1900 is detected, the FSB of PCI-E would be raised to 125 MHz or even 150 MHz from 100 MHz automatically. On the mean while, ATi would release ASM for Windows platform, like the nTune by nVidia, providing tweaking options including FSB, Memory Clock, PCIe Clock, Memory Timings and Voltage Adjustment.
It also has 48 PCI Express lanes and three PCI Express slots, two for CrossFire and one for an ATI Physics Accelerator. According to HKEPC more details about ATI's Physics Acceleration will be unveiled at Computex. More details over here.
