It will most likely not be out until late July or early August, but it should be on display at Computex by at least a couple of ATI’s partners from what our Taiwan spies are telling us. This is the consumer version of the XTX and will look pretty much identical to the HD 2900XT except with a different sticker and more and faster GDDR-4 RAM under the cooler, i.e. this is not the 12.4in full length cards that will be available from OEM’s although both PCB length versions are floating around.
The model name hasn’t been set as yet and it might be called XT GDDR4 or XTX, but we’ll stick with XTX for now. ATI parents have the option of ordering either the GDDR-3 XT or GDDR-4 version right now.
