Default ATIís R520 architecture, the new king of the hill?

ATI is about to introduce their next generation graphics card based on the R520 architecture which will be launched as the Radeon X1800 series of cards. We put it up against the capable GeForce 6800 and 7800 series to see how it performs.

"However it will now be a tough sell, the MSRP is around $599 for the Radeon X1800 XT, which is up to $150 more expensive than the GeForce 7800GTX which is faster overall. Same applies to the Radeon X1800 Pro, which will retail at $449, you can buy a GeForce 7800GTX for that amount of money, which honestly hands the Radeon X1800 Pro its own behind"

Unfortunately history has taught us that previous top-of-the-line ATI graphics cards were available as PE, press edition
At the conclusion remark made

it was called like that because the Platinum Edition of the X800XT was nowhere to be found

it's available to the public, I think gamer had a X800XT PE
