The ATI R600 GPU has been taped out and according to The Inq's sources it works well.
It is the first of the DirectX 10 bits of kit from ATI and we expect it to appear some eight to ten weeks after Nvidia's G80.

It looks like everything is on schedule for now. The company has time to tape it out again and it can still meet the Q4 2006 deadline but let's hope it doesn't have to do it.
