ATI's R600 mainstream and value-cards spotted

We already have some technical information about the R600 mid and low range up a bit down in our news-section. Today we are bringing you the first pictures. The mysterious German guy 'w0mbat' recently posted them at the VR-Zone forums. He is the same guy who pictured the first Opteron 1220 Engineering Sample a while ago and is responsible for the latest information chart regarding the K10.

Update: I found the real source (wasn't too hard) of these pictures. There are 15 of them alltogether over here: PC Games Hardware.Source: VR-Zone Forums

Now it says RV630 in every picture but that cooler one is not RV610 or RV630. It's dual slot, longer, has PCI-e plug and neither board haven't got the fan plug there. But sure looks nice what ever card it is :) Or then it is 512MB X2600XT version of the RV630 core and memory takes the extra space. Will be weird if the Pro version is so much smaller.

first card is low end, second is something along the lines of a x2600pro and the last im guessing is a x2600xt

Thought I'd bump this thread so that we can have a nice blast from the past, and so we can compare these silly rumors with what W1zzard actually reviewed :).
