1. When it will be released?

2. What will be the price?

3. Which chipsets will support it?

4. How many watts under full load it will use?

5. How many ampers in the 12V rails a psu must have?

6. A dual core cpu like Intel E6400 will be a bottleneck for a card like R600?

7. Will we really need a 1000W PSU?

maybe some of my questions are stupid but if you can answer them you will help a lot.. :arrow:

Any answer to any of your questions would be pure speculation, just like the millions of times this topic has been covered already. Sorry to be so negative, but at this point, most of those questions are stupid.

at least anyone know if it's going to be released this year?

Again, this is speculation, but supposed to be out in time for Christmas.

Agreed. They also said that nvidia's DX10 card will be released before the R600. But like Kaotao said, its all speculation. They also set a release date for Vista: January 30th 2007. This isnt final, its most likely going to be pushed. Vista only works with DX10 cards.

1. When it will be released?

They keep doing things that make us think that they will launch it later, but the launch is still slated for October-November. I really cant speculate anymore on this issue.


2. What will be the price?

Same as always 500-650$ for the high-end.

3. Which chipsets will support it?

New AMD chipsets will be coming out soon wich will support the ATI R600, they are said to be even better then the Intel i975. When the card will be out there will be motherboard to support it, right now there arent.


4. How many watts under full load it will use?

Unknown, since the structure of the card is a mystery. Its likely it will have more trasistors then the R580 even, but it may put off less heat due to it's 80nm process and possible smaller and more efficient design.

5. How many ampers in the 12V rails a psu must have?

:wink:

6. A dual core cpu like Intel E6400 will be a bottleneck for a card like R600?

This is a tough one. The 7950 GX2 is bottlenecked by an FX-62. Lets just put it like this - the X6800 is the best CPU on the planet, if u overclock the E6400 to 2.93Ghz and its still a bottleneck then there nothing u can do, but it should be fine.

7. Will we really need a 1000W PSU?

Too early to tell.

1. Late this year, early next, those are mostly speculated now.
2. As much as any new generation high end card, at leat $450 US.
3. What do you mean by chipsets? It'll be PCI-E, so any motherboard with PCI-E slot will pretty much run it.

6. Not really, considering that games depend on the video card pretty much all the time. Any dual core will be good enough.
7. It should be close to a current SLI/CF requirement. You'll probably need close to 1000W with SLI/CF, but for single card setups, a good 500W PSU should habdle it fine.

As for 4. and 5., they will most likely use more watts/need more amps than current cards, by how much more? Don't know.

U guys are confusing the ATI chipset for intel CPUs RD600 with the next high-end graphics card the R600.

Huh?

1. When it will be released?
November
2. What will be the price?
$600
3. Which chipsets will support it?
Anything with a PCIe x16 will do single, xfire will require any current xfire board
4. How many watts under full load it will use?
200W
5. How many ampers in the 12V rails a psu must have?
18a per card, plus about 20a for the system
6. A dual core cpu like Intel E6400 will be a bottleneck for a card like R600?
Depends on the app, but for games like oblivion, no
7. Will we really need a 1000W PSU?
no, 550 for single card and 750 for xfire will be good

Wrong, DX10 only works with vista, not the other way around. Vista will work just fine with <DX8, but you won't be able to use glass. You'll need DX9 for glass, and DX10 if you want to play any dx10 games.

Do you work for AMD-ATI? :D

As a single card it will work on an nforce 590 intel edition chipset?
September 6, 2006 11:34:10 PM

Yes, because both have PCI-E....

He got really close with his guess! 8O
Release date is most likely December, though, unless he meant the paper launch.
September 7, 2006 1:32:20 PM

Was he really that close? I mean, this conclusion is one of common sense, not genius or inside information :oops:  :wink:

He wasn't close at all. He was just joking that he almost got the release date right, so that he dosent even know that.

The X1900s drain 300w at load, so how can the next gen drain 200w.. he knows nothing. Oh and he says that u need a 550w for the net gen cards wich is more then the X1900 cards need, but how can this be if they take 100w less, see?
Also, he dosent even know what a chipset is. You should look at my answer if u want facts.
September 7, 2006 6:25:49 PM

I hate to break it to you, but thats not fact either, thats simply an even larger guess.
