Ok, considering that many journalists have now seen R600 in all its glory for both the desktop and mobile platforms, I was a little dubious about posting this article. If you can imagine how water-tight the nda's are on any information given about AMD's flagship GPU prior to its release, you can understand my reservations. But anyway it appears that we have an image of an genuine...real McCoy R600XT card with the heatsink removed. I found this snippet at ocworkbench, so they obviously believe that there is some truth to it all.

Fudo shows off his version of the R600XT while the rest are enjoying their trip at Tusnia.

This is a picture of the same R600XT card so you guys can compare it and analyse it all you want but this is the real Radeon HD 2900XT Mc Coy. The version ATI is showing off in Africa today is shorter, has a smaller retail cooler and has 512 MB of memory.

Look at the size of the heatpipes, it's ridiculous but this is necessary to do remove 200W+. This is an OEM card and it should be ready by middle of the May that is the day.

Oh and the second PCIe 8 pin connector is for Overdrive.


As far as I'm concerned the jury is still out, but this is apparently the OEM version. Either way that is one hell of a heatsink!
