ATI Radeon X1300 to go 80nm

The ATI Radeon X1300 will soon be manufactured on 80nm:
The Radeon X1300 family will get a few new members - the RV516 and RV505. The current Radeon X1300 generation is based on the 90 nanometre RV515, while the new RV505s are 80 nanometre. As we said back in April, the RV516 is a replacement RV515 chip built in a UMC fab.

RV505 ASIC is manufactured by TSMC and has the same features as RV515 and RV516 chips. The card supports Shader Model 3.0, 128 or 64-bit memory interface, Avivo and Hypermemory for up to 512MB of memory.

ATI will introduce the newly-branded Radeon X1300 CE with the RV505CE ASIC chip. The card will be clocked at 350MHz core but will be passively cooled.
