The mainstream card is expected toward Q3 2005 and it's meant to replace X700PRO generation of cards. We are sure that it will come under the $200 price tag and will come in both PCIe and AGP interface. It's going to be built on 90 nanometre marchitecture and it will feature support for Shader model 3.0
At the low end, entry level market we can expect to see the new boy codenamed RV515. This card will also come in both PCIe and AGP flavours and will aim to replace X300/SE and RV351 generation of cards. This is expected towards the end of Q3 and it will be built on 90 nanometre marchitecture using Shader model 3.0.
Quindi RV515 sara' una scheda di tutto rispetto nella fascia bassa (e magari sbloccabile ).
Mentre si potra' godere di buona parte della potenza riservata all' R520 "nudo e crudo" ad un prezzo ragionevole.
Ottimo sapere il doppio supporto al bus agp/pciE.
