    R600 is ATI's answer to NVIDIA's G80 circuit. The rumors surrounding this has been many and they keep multiplying even as we're getting closer to the actual launch, which is still three months away though. Now rumors have appeared that R600 will be compatible with Microsoft's coming DirectX 10.1, which will be released during the second quarter of 2007. The difference between DirectX 10 and 10.1 is, among others, a better multi-core support and an optimized API which needs fewer calls. EliteBastards has a short article about DirectX 10.1 for those who wants to know more.
