New AMD Radeon specs

A Spanish-language website claims to acquired photos and specifications on three new, unannounced AMD video cards. Of these the most notable may actually be the slowest of the group, the Radeon HD 3450; while it only has a 525MHz core and 256MB of 800MHz memory, it is the only one of the three known to have a DisplayPort connection, the second from the company after the previously-revealed RV635 XT. DisplayPort is intended to eventually replace DVI and VGA ports, and it may subsume HDMI as well, since companies do not have to pay for its use.

The HD 3470 has only DVI-I, VGA and TV Out ports, but raises its core speed to 600MHz, and can fit either 256 or 512MB of 1GHz memory. Finally, the HD 3650 will come in either 600MHz (Pro) or 800MHz (XT) versions, but in each case it will use a superior RV635 core, which could mean the latter is one and the same with the RV635 XT; the difficulty is that the only pictured 3650 lacks DisplayPort connections. Memory is upgraded here to 256 or 512MB of 2GHz RAM. The cards are expected to be released in January or February of 2008. [via MadboxPC]
