ATI Radeon X1900 GT Leaked
It appears there is a new X1900 card coming this summer, the X1900 GT. So far the X1800 XT has had to step up and compete against Nvidia’s 7900 GT, which is not a good strategy as it means ATI are producing two concurrent chips at present, R520 and R580, or perhaps it’s just old stock floating about.
The X1900 GT will have 36 pixel shaders, be clocked at 575/600 and come with 256MB of memory. This should?bring its performance very close to a 7900 GT, i would imagine.?This card is?really a direct replacement?for the power hungry X1800 XT,?it should be cheaper for ATI to produce the X1900 GT compared to the X1800 XT.
Rumour has it that the cards might unlock to 48 pixel?shaders too as its built using the R580 core. Have to wait and see on that one.
