ATI RD500 to be called CrossFire 1600

Posted on Wednesday, July 05 2006 @ 15:58:46 CEST by

Soon we can expect the RD500 chipset from ATI. This one will only have two PCI Express x8 slots but it will be one of the company's first chips with support for both CrossFire and Conroe.

The RD500 will be branded as the Crossfire 1600.
The chipset should be ready in a month or two. ATI recognises the importance of Conroe and wants to support Intel as much as it can. The bottom line is to sell as many dual graphic cards as it possibly can, but ATI will sure start working hard to promote its chipsets, but it first have to finish the chipset.

ATI is also working on RD600, the next generation PCIe chipset that can support PCIe 16X slots but this baby will come a little bit later.
