It's gonna be such a beast. 1GB of GDDR4 with a 153.6 GB/s memory bandwidth. A full 512-bit Ring Bus for the memory. God I love ATI/AMD's architecture choices.

I think recently it was rumored that the first versions of the R600 beat the 8800 GTX by 5% or so and it was clocked slower too. Not sure of the reliability of that, but it certainly gives you a head up of the R600's power.

Were any price figures on the R600 released?

Don't expect it to be like the 8800GTX. I'd say around 1k-3k.

My guess? $500-$700. No official price has been announced by ATI/AMD yet, but that's my guess. Don't be suprised if it's around that.

$600 for the XTX. Retail is 240W, rumored to use dual 6 pin or one 6 pin one 8 pin, 9" long. OEM will be 270W and 12" long. There will also be a XT and XL, both using 512MB of GDDR3.

Hopefully they'll have a lower end product within the $200 - $300 mark.
