Radeon X2900 XTX Leaks

AMD (formerly ATI) has substantially improved its upcoming next-generation Radeon card, according to a set of new photos and tests. Photos have surfaced showing that the R600, to be known as the Radeon X2900 XTX, will no longer need the extra-long board seen in earlier leak while still containing 1GB of memory and an 800MHz core speed.

The card is also faster than NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 despite its unfinished software drivers, the leak reveals. Using 3DMark 06, testers have successfully reached a score of 9700, edging out the more refined GeForce 8800 GTX by 200 points. While pricing remains unknown, the new Radeon is expected to ship in small numbers by mid-April (possibly in time for the Mac Pro) with larger quantities arriving in May. More photos can be found after the break. [via VR-Zone]
