    VR-Zone has learned that the official marketing name for R600 will be Radeon X2900 series and we will start using the name from now on. We can expect AMD to launch Radeon X2900XTX and XT first while X2900XL will follow later. The recent leaked R6xx series chart with pricing contains lots of false information is all we can say. RV610 and RV630 are 65nm and RV610 has 64-bit memory interface.
    Among other things we can confirm right now; R600 is 80nm, contains 700M transistors and has 512-bit memory interface. X2900 requires 2 supplemental power connector from the PSU, one 8-pin and one 6-pin but you are able to plug in the 6-pin power cable into the 8-pin connector. The targeted driver release version for X2900 series is Catalyst 8.35.1. Systems with X2900XTX cards and tech demos will be at CeBIT but inside a private room for the privileged only.

    I'm considering putting it on the front page but there is nothing there which VR-Zone us to back it up, and I reckon that ATI would stick to the X2800 for the first cards and move to X2900 for the later ones. The only justifaction of a move like this that I can think of it that they don't want to be seen as being a level behind NVIDIA (ie X2800 might sound worse than 8900).

    Well, I think it will look better if the X2800 is faster than the 8900
