Many of ATI's add-in-board (AIB) partners received ATI Radeon X1800XL (R520XL) card samples last Friday, VR-Zone reports.

The manufacturers say the die size is 19.3mm x 19mm and that the card will be officially unveiled on October 5th. However, mass production of the cards isn't expected till the end of October.

Until now only 1,000 of these cards have been produced for customers qualifications and reviews and the yield rate for the 16 and 24 pipelines R520 is under 25 percent.
