The Inq reports the ATI R600 will end up with more than 500 million transistors.
We already told you that this will be one big, hot chip but we don’t think many people expected 500+ million transistors.

This is just a single piece of the puzzle of unveiling this big crazy chip. Don’t forget that we heard will dissipate 250+ Watts of power and will also be really fast in both DirectX 9 and 10 games.

We hope there won't be any additional delays of this hot chip, which will be the first big and powerful graphic chip unveiled by AMD.
