ATI's upcoming RV515, R520 and RV530 details

Elite Bastards has some rumours on ATI's GPU plans. Here are two quotes form their sources, the first one is about the R520 I believe:
It's all beyond October now but at least its final info, and exact release dates have been set
512mb memory
600 core / 700 memory
reviews in 3 or 4 weeks

the RV515 launch sooner but they aren't based on the R520 as Dave already stated
And here's the other one:
RV515Pro will rock at 600 MHz core and 400 Mhz DDR1 mem. And R520XT will be clocked higher than GF7800GTX by a margin of more than 100 MHz....


Here's some additional information that was posted on Elite Bastards's forum:

The author of the articles points out these release dates are NOT the date you can expect them in stores. It's the date the chipsets will be delivered in factories, so you need to add a few weeks before they will go to retail stores. Probably the RV515 will arrive in September, the R520 in October and the RV530 in November.
