There will be three models, the slowest being the Radeon X850 PRO. It’s clocked to 520MHz core, and has 1080MHz memory with 12 pipelines. Next up, the midrange Radeon X850 XT is clocked to 520MHz core, and has 1080MHz memory and has 16 pipelines. Finally, the beast of the bunch is the Radeon X850XT Platinum edition, which boasts 540MHz core and 590/1180MHz GDDR 3 memory, 16 pipelines and two DVI slots for two TFTs. These cards should be on the market in early January 2005. A picture is below.
ATI plans to introduce two cards that will continue to carry the X800 brand, but are PCIe only. The Radeon X800 core is at 400MHz, its memory clocked to 350, 700MHz. Suggested retail price for this card is $249. Then, based on the R430XL chip, the Radeon X800XL’s core is to 400MHz and the memory runs at 500, 1000MHz. There are 16 pipelines, 256MB RAM and VGA, DVI and TV out. The price should be around $349.
