24-32 pipes for R520?

Unconfirmed speculation at The Inquirer suggests that ATI's upcoming R520 graphics chip could have as many as 32 pixel pipelines, although ATI may only enable 24 of those pipes for the initial release. The chip will apparently weigh in at more than 300 million transistors, nearly twice as many as the R420 GPU that powers the Radeon X800 series.
