AMD confirms 19 November RV670 launch

AMD will indeed release its 'RV670' graphics chip on 19 November - as predicted - an analyst has claimed the company told him recently. As yet, however, RV670's go-to-market branding remains unknown - some pundits have suggested ATI Radeon HD 2950 Pro - but American Technology Research's Doug Freedman last week told investors that the part will debut on 19 November. The part is a 55nm version of the existing 'R600' GPU core.

According to an ExtremeTech report, Freedman confirmed past reports that the two versions of RV670 due to be launched, 'Gladiator' and 'Revival', run at 825MHz and 750MHz, respectively. "The main difference between the two will be Gladiator's adoption of GDDR 4 memory and an improved memory interface - 2.4GHz vs. 1.8GHz," he wrote.
