Southeast Asia-based media has published photos of what is claimed to be ATI’s next-generation R600 graphics processing unit (GPU). Without giving any particular details, the photos reveal somewhat strange placement of the relatively large chip on the substrate.

Earlier it was reported that AMD/ATI code-named R600 graphics processor is the first ATI’s chip compliant with DirectX 10 standards. Previously released information also says that R600 will have 64 unified shader processors, 16 texture units, clock-speeds well beyond 650MHz – 700MHz and support for high-speed GDDR4 memory controller. Some sources also suggested that the R600 will have 512-bit physical memory interface.

The chip is rumoured to be produced using 80nm process technology. The approximate number of transistors is yet unclear. Recent media reports state that Advanced Micro Devices is set to formally launch the R600 graphics processor and, possibly, first graphics cards on January, 20, 2007.

The chips, which are claimed to be ATI’s R600, were produced on the 32nd week of 2006, which is early August. Officials from ATI did not comment on the news-story.

I used to have 2 x 10"s and 1 x 12". Coupled with some serious amps it was pretty loud :D

I prefer a tight 12" in all honestly, if you insist a bit more you can get a 12" that puches you in the back :D

Not modding is fine but i suggest that you find what is vibrating and fix it otherwise you risk a bolt / screw falling out or some damage being done to something tiny (that in a Merc will cost a fair bit to replace)

I was looking the other day, and the thing that vibrates, is this plastic strip that supports the back trim, actually I have no clue what it does. It just rests in the back and the sub is directly below it, vibrating it.

Either way, that strip could be worth $16,000 in a Mercedes
