First Details Of ATI RD600: 3 Graphics Cards Per System, And Other Features

Sources obtained the first information about the coming ATI RD600 chipset for new Intel-based motherboards. Though its features are similar to those of RD580 (Radeon Xpress 3200) introduced in March, it still has a number of distinctive differences.

They claim it will support 1333MHz nominal and up to 1.5GHz (!) overclocked FSB. There also will be an asynchronous memory controller with clock rate independent on FSB. The chipset will support memory up to DDR2-1066.

Also supported will be three fully-featured PCIå x16 interfaces for three graphics cards. Two of these may work in the CrossFire mode, while the third will process physics calculations. The CrossFire mode won't require any connectors anymore.

The RD600 will be made using 90nm process, so it will be cooled passively due to lower heat dissipation. Besides the top-end RD600, boards on which will cost $150 and more, several cheaper solutions will be released.
