OCWorkbench writes the ATI Catalyst 7.9 drivers hint at some upcoming graphics cards:
"ATI Radeon HD 2900 PRO" = ati2mtag_R600,PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9400&SUBSYS_30001002 "ATI Radeon HD 2900 PRO " = ati2mtag_R600, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9403

"ATI Radeon HD 2350 Series" = ati2mtag_RV610, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_94C3&SUBSYS_30001025

"ATI Radeon HD 2600 X2 Series" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_958A

There are new id strings for Radeon HD2350, HD2600 X2 and HD2900Pro from the PCIID info, it seems that HD2350 should be similar to HD2400 (RV610). Could it be a lower low cost version of HD 2400 ?

As for HD2600 X2, it belongs to the RV630, but we are not sure if it is a pro or xt core.

There is also the rumoured 256 bits memory bandwidth HD 2900Pro. HD 2900Pro uses the R600 Core.
