The R6x0 series will be paper-launched at CeBIT this year, though we will still have to wait until roughly March before seeing anything, so that we don't see any shortages. The latest details of the R6x0 family, according to our friends at VR-Zone:
- The R600 will be available as previously stated. It will come with 64 unified shaders (32 ROP's?), clocked at 814MHz. It should perform 2.5 to 8 times better than the current R580, depending on the application.
- The RV610 will be AMD's entry-level DirectX10 entry. It will ship in May. It will have an 8 layer PCB, digital PWM's, will be manufactured on a 65nm process, and support up to 256MB of 64 bit DDR2.
- The RV630 will be AMD's mid-level DirectX10 entry. It will ship with the RV610. It will be on a 65nm process, use "bi-directional PWM for GPU and uni-directional PWM for memories", and have up to 2x256MB (wonder why they don't call it 512MB) GDDR4.
