ATI’s R520 Spotted

While at E3 the Anandtech crew spotted an Intel PCI-e rig at ATI’s booth?with an R520?inside. Quote: "In a bit of a surprise, ATI is running working R520 silicon behind closed doors at their booth here at E3. The R520, not the GPU in the upcoming Xbox 360 but rather the next-generation PC GPU, was running in an Intel PCIe system at ATI’s booth. The system was used to demonstrate Remedy’s upcoming title called Alan Wake. The game itself was quite impressive, with an incredibly large and interactive environment, as well as some of the most impressive weather effects we’d ever seen." Read it HERE
