HKEPC has the R520 core picture (here), we have the full PCB.



The card you are seeing is the R520 XT. It is a dual slot solution and uses a cooler similar to the X850. ATI will also offer one-slot versions which will have less performance.

The will only be PCI-Express boards. AGP versions are definitely not planned.
Internally the chip will use 512-bit memory transfers. However, the external memory interface will still be 256-bit - expect some nice marketing from ATI regarding that "feature".

Right now the product lineup is:
R520 XT
  • 512MB RAM
  • ~600 MHz core
  • ~650-700 MHz memory
  • Dual slot cooling
  • Dual DVI

R520 XL
  • 256MB RAM
  • ~500 MHz core
  • ~500 MHz memory
  • Single slot cooling
  • VGA + DVI

R520 LE
  • 256MB RAM
  • ~450 MHz core
  • ~450 MHz memory
  • Single slot cooling
  • VGA + DVI

R520 XT Crossfire Edition
  • 256MB RAM
  • ~600 MHz core
  • ~650-700 MHz memory
  • Dual slot cooling
  • VGA + DVI

I guess we can expect a Pro version in between there soon.

In the thread at HKEPC linked above (translated) "it is likely that the ATI R520 will change its name to ATI Radeon X1800 series, the estimated release date for the ATI X900 series is early October".
One of these two names is correct my source says, he didn't want to reveal which one though. The October release date is correct.

Having a 256 MBs R520XT Crossfire edition means the R520XT will only have access to 256MBs of RAM when used in Crossfire mode? :confused:

Any confirmation on the number of pixel pipelines?

Pixel pipelines? Vertex shaders?

How many pixel pipelines & vertex shaders? Those are pretty unimpressive clock speeds if there are 16 pixel pipelines like some rumours suggested.

Hard to trust someone who doesn't know how to spell "though" and "October".

He spelled October correctly, and "tho" is an online abbreviation for "though". Besides, the guy is from Germany so I'd say he has very good English all considered.

600Mhz and already dual slot cooling.. hmmm.. if the 16pp rumours hold true, can't see how it can be competitive up agaist the 7800GTX. Have you guys heard anything on power consumption?

Higher than X850 XT PE if the thermal docs that I've seen are to be believed.
