If you would like to get all the juciest information on the R520 before it gets released later next month, you can head over to Anandtech's "pre-NDA Extravaganza" and read up on a lot of it.  The meat of it is that we will only see a 16 pipe version of this core despite older rumors and that clock speeds on the XT (top model) are going to be at 600 MHz core and 700 MHz memory!  Oh and we will now have two more cards with 512 MB memory configurations stock from ATI by the looks of it.

Master Card Requirement to Stay in R5xx Series

The Inq believes that the upcoming R520 will still require the use of a master graphics card and won't be able to sell just a single GPU as NVIDIA is doing.

ATI SIMPLY didn't have enough time to remove the necessity for the master—slave card concept in R520 and the other R5xx cards. We learned that a handful of R520 master cards should be available at launch date and that customers will get them a few weeks after the launch.

ATI Roadmaps Unmasked??

It looks like Anandtech has spilled the beans on the upcoming release of ATI's next generation GPU series, the R5xx.  Unfortunately, with the dates they have listed at least, things still aren't looking up quite yet. 

You'll first notice that ATI is releasing their cards slightly out of order this time around. ATI's approach may be to corner off NVIDIA before a next generation replacement for the 6200 series shows up.

Anandtech has reviewed the latest high end card from XFX, the 7800 GTX.  They look at the same 490/1.3 version that I reviewed here

That being said, here is what we recommend. If you still don't have Battlefield 2 and want to get a good 7800 GTX with BF2 bundle, then definitely go with the XFX GeForce 7800 GTX Overclocked (with BF2 bundle), which is available for about $550 right now.
