    Graphics major AMD is set to unleash a near-complete lineup of DirectX 11 compliant 40 nm GPUs within 2009. The lineup begins with the entry-level RV810, all the way up to R800 (a supposedly dual-RV870 accelerator). Along the way are two of AMD's key GPUs at the start of its DirectX 11 conquest: the high-performance RV870, and mainstream-performance RV840. The two succeed RV770/RV790 and RV740 respectively. A full-range lineup also means that apart from the RV740, the company will be sourcing three more GPUs from its foundry partners.

    Preliminary specifications of the RV870 point at it to have 1200 stream processors, and 143 GB/s of memory bandwidth. The GPU may feature in the Radeon HD 5800 series, and in a pair as R800, possibly Radeon HD 5870 X2. No specifications of the RV840 or RV810 GPUs surfaced from the sources.

    They're going to lose big time if this is true.

    They need 1600, not 1200 - 1600. Actually, since 480 beat 1600, AMD needs 1800.

    don't forget ROP. If AMD will be putting much ROP @ 1200 SP then surely it will perform better. AMD needed to bump those ROP's!

    The thing holding the 4800's back is the ROPs. If these have double the rops and 1200 shaders... These will be beast.

    That's 1200 per RV870. So R800 has 2400 SPs. Each of these come with shader compute power of ~2 TFLOPs, nearly twice that of RV770.

    Is R800 going to be the dual-core GPU that AMD has been promising forever, or just another twin-chip card?

    Anyway, looks like AMD is going to make the R800 faster than 2x RV870s slapped on 1 PCB - which is good news for high-end buyers. :)

    Damn, I just bought an HD4890 and I'm already crying because something new is coming out...:cry:...oh well, this is the life of a hardware junkie...

    I'm just hoping this will be enough to truly put ATi in competition with nVidia, allowing ATi to match nVidia GPU for GPU.

    heck he can sell his current 4890 and buy the HD5800 series gfx and yes he's a hardware junky that's why he needed the latest hardware available

    me too. Patience is a virtue! I've had only 1 DX10 card that I'm currently using now and will be patiently waiting for DX11. I'm on to the red side if Nvidia will be lazy releasing their DX11 card

    what's so great about DX11 anyway?
    most games won't even support it for a while.

    well if the pricing is way off the chart then I'd stick with DX10 for a while till the price drops. it's future proofing I guess hopefully DX11 will be a success unlike DX10 when it first came out
