  1. Did AMD/ATI reveal the R600 series of video cards yet?

    Other than a couple of photographs they allowed some journalists to take, no.

    Specs have been leaked though.

    ATi/AMD's Radeon X2900XTX

    -1024MB GDDR4
    -64 Unified Shaders, 4 ops per clock, per shader = 256 effective Shader Ops per clock
    -512-bit memory bus
    -153.6GB/s memory bandwidth
    -Internal Crossfire connection over 2 bridges

    By the looks of it, it's going to give the 8000 series a run for their money, as it is more powerful even than the upcoming 8900GTX.

    Yeah, and your electricity bills will shoot through the roof too. These things suck up power more than F1 cars drink petrol.

    Shouldn't that read American cars? ;)

    Yea, and they only take 240 watts at 100% ;) They'd never use that much when playing any game though... that 240 watts is like, 100% load with factory tests.

    But really, they don't take much more than an 8000 series, and I bet the 9000 series will take even more.
