ATi's R420 to have 12 pipelines?

Posted on Monday, March 15 2004 @ 21:43:13 CET by

The Inquirer revealed today that ATi's R420 will feature 12 working pipelines, with a possible maximum of 16. According to them it seems like a heavy tweaked R360 core, with additional pipelines, built on a 130nm process.
As we previously said, the relative frequency numbers for this chip will be close to 500/1000MHz in its XT version; it will use GDDR 3 memory that consumes less power, and yet gives out less heat, than DDR 2.

Its all about the brawn this time, ATI says. And, with six vertex shader units, this chip ought to be very fast.

Despite protests, the outlook remains very cloudy for the upcoming performance crown battle between the R420 and Nvidia's NV40.
