We are quite sure that ATI’s part is 40nm and we are talking about one big chip, packed with a lot of performance.
ATI's R800 dual-DPU card should again be equipped with two RV8x0 chips, while the RV8x0 card should be the performance DirectX 11 solution.
There is a big chance that both Nvidia and ATI might skip the 40nm DirectX 10.x part that would replace RV790 / GT200 architecture and that they will both simply move to DirectX 11 part and welcome Windows 7.
ATI planning DirectX 11 card for late 2009
