Radeon roadmaps revealed
AnandTech has details from ATI's next-gen graphics roadmaps, including information on upcoming graphics chip specs, CrossFire editions, cooling requirements, and release schedules. According to the roadmaps, R520 will debut in early September on a single-slot card carrying an "XL" moniker. That will be followed by an "XT" version of R520, which will require a dual-slot cooler, in early October. RV515- and RV530-based products are slated to appear in late September and October, respectively, with the 12-pipe RV530 looking to be the more intriguing of the two.
