That would be interesting to see since it is running on the 64-Bit interface. They are targeting HD playback more so than gaming though.
Yeah this was their D2 product, considered their midrange and the D3 being the performance end. The D3 was to come out a quarter after the D2, so likely that's also been pushed back a bit. The problem IMO is by the time it comes out it may be giving us below HD3850-3650/GF9600-GF8600 performance and at that time be going against even newer competitors.
Here's the old roadmap from last year;http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/2650/6d1eqn8m1897nf2kp5.jpg
The only problem with the roadmap is that the D series products were supposed to be DX10.0 only, and the XE products DX10.1, so I wonder if they didn't decide to blend the generations due to delays.
Anywhoo, there was talk of a higher end product later, but I doubt it will be the Enthusiast segment versus something more mid-range. I see no benefit to VIA/S3 to compete with the R700 & G100/T200, and find it unlikely they'll even match an RV770 or even RV670/G92 once they finally arrive. Which is why I hope their DX10/10.1 implementation brings some novel efficiencies to the table just to make things more interesting.
