X-bit Labs published a few photos of the ATI R600 GPU on its website. The photos were first published by Southeast Asia-based media.
Earlier it was reported that AMD/ATI code-named R600 graphics processor is the first ATI’s chip compliant with DirectX 10 standards. Previously released information also says that R600 will have 64 unified shader processors, 16 texture units, clock-speeds well beyond 650MHz – 700MHz and support for high-speed GDDR4 memory controller. Some sources also suggested that the R600 will have 512-bit physical memory interface.
The first graphics cards based on the R600 chip should arrive in January 2007.
