As the end of the month approaches and the Texas Gaming Festival approaches, ATI has begun sharing a few tidbits of information regarding some new hardware they're going to showcase at the event. Rumors are floating around that people will see a 512MB card, although no solid confirmation has been given.

"The GeForce 6600 video card was initially released as a PCI-Express video card. Recently Nvidia released an AGP version of the 6600 for those who have not made the leap to the new bus type. Nvidia places the 6600 series in the performance category while the biggest and baddest 6800 is in the enthusiast category. Currently there are two models of the 6600 line, the regular 6600 and 6600GT which is faster than the regular 6600.

Those of you interested in laptop gaming might want to check out this review of ATI's Mobility X800. You can find the review over at Beyond3d.
"M28, fundamentally, is very similar to M18 as they are both derived from basically the same core parts. Where M18 is derived from ATI's R420 core,
M28 is derived from R423 - both of these cores are architecturally, and performance configuration wise, the same but R420 is built for AGP graphics
whilst R423 is built for PCI Express.

|Not everyone needs or wants a top of the range graphics card and there are some good mid range alternatives on the market right now. One alternative to consider is one of the Radeon X700 series graphics cards, based on ATI's RV410 GPU. The X700 Pro is a smart looking little card, with a compact dual exhaust cooling solution.|

I just got this in an email from Gigabyte, and it looks damn cool. We are looking at a dual 6600GT card (that's right, one card) with 256 MB of DDR3 memory on a 256-bit memory bus, running at a memory clock of 600 MHz and a core clock of 500 MHz (each, I assume). I have included the 1 page PDF file as an image they sent out below.
What is still left to be determined is how exactly this is working! My first theory is presume that the card itself is splitting the PCIe bus into two buses, one going to each chip seperately and with a direct connection between
NV44 - 6200 w/ TurboCache
NVIDIA wants to bring the majority of their 6000-series features down below the $100 price range into the entry level market; but with a card with only a 32MB frame buffer?
