AMD Confirms RV670 Launch Date: November 19th

As predicted by analysts earlier, AMD will indeed be releasing the RV670 graphics chips on November 19th. However, even now, the market branding of the card remains unknown. While some say it will be the HD 2950 series, others say it will be the HD 3800. Regardless of what it will be called, AMD will be releasing two versions. The first, codenamed "Gladiator" will run at a core clock of 825MHz, and have an undetermined quantity of 2.4GHz GDDR4 memory. "Revival" will run at a core clock of 750MHz, have the same GDDR4 memory, but will be clocked at 1.8GHz.Source: Neowin.net

Is this just a die shrink or is there more to it? From what Ive read, and remember, it doesnt seem like a huge step up.

I hope it does well, the first HD 2900XT wasnt bad, but drivers were a huge issue. Now its come along well and it seems ATI did a die shrink and thats about it. If anyone knows, please lemme know.

Can't wait to see this going head to head with 8800GT. If it's a little slower, DX10.1 might do it for many. If it ends up being 2900xt speeds, then I'll switch sides again. No fanboyism here, I go for the good price great performance, even if it were Matrox :)
