    ATI Technologies expects to begin volume shipments of its 90nm graphics processing units (GPUs), the R520, R530 and RV515, in the middle of the third quarter, as unspecified issues for manufacturing on 90nm technology will soon be solved, according to ATI Taiwan. ATI also plans to introduce another flagship chip, the R580, in early 2006.

    It seems the R520 will just be a 24 pipe and the R580 the 32 pipe version....?

    This seems to be a bit earlier then Orton hinted (early September).

    Ten points to MuFu! It's absolutely not 24 or 32 fragment units. Neither is R580.

    And August is likely wrong too.

    Any more info on that recently? 16-1-3-1... pretty intriguing, no? I guess we might have more of an idea when RV530 comes out.

    Why is there necessarily an "or" here? 7800 launched on June 22 --when did "volume shipments" of the gpu begin?

    I don't understand what you're trying to say with that. Can you describe what you mean at all?
