The folks at DigiTimes are reporting that the ATI R480 has taped out at TSMC using a 110nm fab process. This chip is presumably the replacement for the high-end R420 found in Radeon X800 cards. DigiTimes says the R480 is "due to launch in the fourth quarter"of 2004, I suppose.
The report also says ATI should have the Xbox 2 chip, dubbed R500, ready to roll in the first quarter of '05. DigiTimes says the R500 will be ATI's design, but Microsoft will be responsible for placing manufacturing orders with TSMC. The R500 is widely expected to be a generation beyond the R400-series GPUs and similar to ATI's future high-end desktop chips.
