ATI RV550 to merge GPU and video processor

Posted on Saturday, August 05 2006 @ 00:06:26 CEST by

The ATI RV550 mainstream card will incorporate a Radeon X1000-class GPU and a Xilleon-based dedicated video processor inside a single chip.
The Xilleon is itself a single-chip solution for devices like set top boxes and digital TVs; it includes a MIPS processor, high-definition video decoder, audio decoder, I/O, and a host of other features.

According to the slides, the RV550's integrated video processor will allow it to handle "worst case" Blu-ray and HD DVD playback when paired with a mainstream CPU. The RV550's graphics processor may not be too shabby for a mainstream part, either: it'll be clocked at 600MHz with four pixel shader processors, 800MHz GDDR2 memory, and a 128-bit memory bus.
