AMD announce new GPUs

AMD have recently announced information on the new R680, RV620 and RV635 graphics chips.
 
 
AMD's newest R680 graphics processor might look a whole lot like the ill-fated R600 GPU, but the reality couldn't be more bizarre. Instead of one 80nm behemoth-of-a-GPU, the R680 consists of two 55nm processor cores.

Representatives from AMD would not confirm that the R680 is essentially two RV670 GPU cores on the same board, though the company did confirm that each core has the same specifications of an RV670 processor.

The RV670 graphics core, announced last November with the Phenom processor, is the first 55nm desktop graphics adaptor. AMD does not target this card as a high-end adaptor, though reviewers were quick to herald the RV670 as AMD's best product of 2007.

The company also made quick mention of the RV620 and RV635 GPU cores. These cores are nearly identical to the previous RV610 and RV630 processors, but will be produced on the 55nm node instead.

This seems to be a lot like the 7950GX2... which wasn't bad, but wasn't that great either as it was at the mercy of drivers!

I got her one of those tiny short range FM transmitters that runs off the car lighter to go with the Ipod i got her for christmas. Pretty awesome if you dont have a CD player / cant be bothered changing CDs every 14 tracks :p

Also we had a nice romantic night at mine sunday and I cooked her a meal. And got a few small things here for her from my parents that she's yet to receive.

I'm pretty sure she doesn't check the forums any more but I shall point her in this direction. Cheers PV ;)
