    In favor of a PCI (not PCIe) X1300? Radeon 7000 is the current PCI multi-monitor offering (I have one here, actually) and was based on Radeon VE, and Radeon VE is a flava of the sainted eponymous progenitor of the line. . . .

    That would actually finally retire the original Radeon core, wouldn't it? If so, fare thee well brave and faithful servant. . .

    Catalyst 6.5 was also the last driver to support Radeon 9250 and below, all the while the cards were still moving fast in the summer. It really feels like the axe has fallen this year.

    Are there still integrated Rage cores on server boards?

    Not quite the last of the original radeon, server versions of that chip exist (es1000) - they are actually quite new :).
