AMD rolled out its Radeon HD 2900 Pro on Tuesday, and now the company seems to be gearing up for the launch of another mid-range, R600-based graphics card. A report by VR-Zone says the Radeon HD 2900 GT we heard about last week is scheduled to hit stores on October 8.
The Radeon HD 2900 GT will reportedly have the same 600MHz core clock speed and 800MHz memory speed as the Radeon HD 2900 Pro and XT. However, it will have 240 stream processors, 256MB of memory, and a 256-bit memory bus instead of the 320 SPs and 512MB of RAM running off a 512-bit bus that you get with the 2900 Pro and XT.
Interestingly, VR-Zone mentions that both the Radeon HD 2900 Pro and the Radeon HD 2900 GT will reach end-of-life status at the end of October. The site claims those two cards are simply a way for AMD to get rid of R600 chips that didn't hit 2900 XT speeds before it introduces its 55nm RV670 GPU. According to VR-Zone, RV670 cards will come out in mid-November at prices ranging from $229 to $299.
