— 8:55 AM on October 2, 2007

The rumor mill has been grinding away furiously about AMD's RV670 graphics processor lately. We've already seen specifications and even pictures of RV670-based graphics cards, and now the folks at DigiTimes say they've learned of a release date for those cards.

Quoting unnamed sources at graphics cards manufacturers, DigiTimes says Radeon HD 2950 Pro graphics cards bearing RV670 GPUs will roll out on November 19. The cards will be available in two variants, code-named Revival and Gladiator. The former will boast a 750MHz core clock speed, 900MHz memory clock, and either 256MB or 512MB of GDDR3 memory. Gladiator, meanwhile, will run at 825MHz and be outfitted with 512MB of speedy GDDR4 memory clocked at 1200MHz.

As other sources have reported, DigiTimes says the RV670 chip will have 320 stream processors, DirectX 10.1 support, and PCI Express 2.0 compatibility.
