ATI confirms 512 MByte graphics card

ATI says it will demo the first graphics card with 512 MByte memory at the Ultimate LAN event, held in Dallas from February 25 to 27. The company did not reveal specifics, but it is considered certain that the card will be an extension of the current X850 XT PE. Nvidia 6800 Ultra-based cards are expected to make a similar move: Gainward already announced a 512 MByte version of a 6800 Ultra card. (THG)
