    Other exciting ATI news today as ATI is preparing the launch of three new graphics cards this early August. We can now basically confirm the rumors. We will see a Radeon X1950 and X1900 graphic cards. Both of these new cards are based on the same R580 core, but with some fundamental differences.
    The X1800 series (R580) features a the ringbus memory controller capable of utilizing several different types of memory, including GDDR4 as Guru3D has reported in our reviews several times already.
    At this time Hynix and Samsung have both jumped on the GDDR4 train with volume shipments which started weeks ago. The new GDDR4 variants of R580-based Radeons will be called Radeon X1950. Radeon X1950 will retain all of the features of the Radeon X1900, and really only have the added benefit of a new cooler, GDDR4 memory and slightly different frequency clocks. Radeon X1950 at launch will come in two flavors: a high clock "XTX" version, and a Crossfire version. Both cards feature 512MB GDDR4, and the only major difference between the two is that the Crossfire X1950 houses the composite engine and input interfaces for Crossfire.
    Just yesterday, ATI issued an advisory to its partners claiming "Clock frequencies for RADEON X1950 family products are pending and will be provided at a later date." However, in March of this year ATI You can expect core clocks to be set at 650MHz core, there is still a slight possibility that higher clocked cards are also in the works. Memory clock frequencies have not been announced, though Samsung announced its GDDR4 is already capable of 3.2GHz in 8x512Mbit configurations.
    We think we'll also see a new Radeon X1900, a low-cost version of the existing Radeon X1900 XT that utilizes 256MB of GDDR3, enabling the card to be marketed at a $300 price point. The Radeon X1900XT 256MB will use the same clock frequencies as other Radeon X1900XT cards: 625MHz core and 1.45GHz memory which is going to make this a VERY interesting card as at that price point it's competing with NVIDIA's GeForce 7900 GT.
    We expect the Radeon X1950XTX will have availability around on August 7, with the Crossfire one week later. Sampling of the Radeon X1900(XT) 256MB will begin immediately. Radeon X1900 and X1950 will be replaced by another ASIC core, dubbed R600. R600 is expected to be 80nm with new design features above and beyond the R520 and R580 series.
    We however suspect that ATI will launch yet another card, and that's one in the mid-range segment .. Radeon X1650 Pro which will replace the X1600 Pro which in today's market (in my opinion) is a too slow card. With a pricetag of 129 USD and a performance increase the card will be competing with the GeForce 7600 GS. Unfortunately Guru3D does not have core/memory clocks available on that product just yet.
    last bit of information .. we have a photo of the Radeon X1950 XTX.
