ATI RV610 info and performance

VR Zone writes the 65nm RV610 from ATI will have a 64-bit memory interface. There will be two models: the RV610PRO and RV610LE but a RV610XT and RV610HM may follow at a later stage.
RV610PRO uses a 6 layers PCB with a TDP of 35W. It has 256MB GDDR3 memory clocked at 700MHz. RV610PRO support Crossfire and hardware H.264 decode. RV610LE on the other hand uses a 4 layers PCB with TDP at 25W. It has 128MB GDDR2 memory clocked at 400MHz and sports HyperMemory Technology.

Also, we have gotten hold of an early performance test of the RV610LE running on 965 board with Core 2 Extreme X6800 processor. At 1024x768 resolution, 3DMark05 scores stood at 20xx and at 1280x1024 resolution, 3DMark06 scores stood at 12xx. The performance suffers largely due to its 64-bit memory interface and also drivers aren't optimized yet.
The RV610 will be available in May.
