TweakTown somehow managed to sneak into a lab working on the upcoming Radeon chipset for Core 2 CPUs. 90nm manufacture, three 16x PCI express slots, 2 X8s for graphics and one X2 for a PPU plus support for DDR3 ... just a few of the mysteries they reveal.
"That completes our initial first look at ATI's upcoming RD600 chipset from our top secret location in
Taiwan. It is quite clear to see that even before we have had the chance to get our hands on a finely
tweaked retail motherboard, the RD600 is going to very popular with gamers and overclockers.
Performance is up there with Intel 975X and we overclocking is a dream — perfect for users wanting top
notch value for money, which is one of the fundamental reasons overclocking first become popular back
in the days of Intel 440BX motherboards and Celeron 300A processors."
