Website displays photo's of ATI's latest: X1900

@ 2005/12/29
A Chinese website (KHEPC) has pictures of ATI's newest video card, the so called X1900. This card is based on the R580-chip and is expected to be introduced around the 24th next month in January 2006.

As you can see from the photo above, the X1900 seems a lot larger than its predecessor (R520), and this comes as no surprise if we look at the new specifications.

* 48 Pixel Processors
* 8 (or more) Vertex Processors
* 90nm core: 650Mhz (for the top model)
* Memory: 1550Mhz (again, for the top model)

ATI is planning to introduce a series of X1900-cards, one of them will be a CrossFire model. You can expect a naming scheme similar to the X1800 series: X1900XL, X1900XT and All-in-Wonder X1900XL.

The X1900 series is pin to pin compatible with the X1800XT PCB (source)
