ATI develops top-to-bottom DirectX 10 lineup

ATI is said to be preparing a top-to-bottom lineup of DirectX 10 compatible graphics cards. These may arrive as early as by CeBIT 2007.
It was earlier reported that ATI’s first DirectX 10 graphics chip known under R600 code-named had been taped out, which means that development teams at ATI Technologies have several months to complete the designs of mainstream and entry-level graphics processors and then to built-in low-end graphics core into ATI’s chipset code-named RS700. Theoretically, sources indicated, ATI may be able to demonstrate not only the family of DirectX 10 discrete chips at CeBIT 2007, but also the integrated part, although, the latter should be actually available towards middle of the year.
More details at X-bit Labs.
