R650 will solve the R600 troubles

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Cooler and faster

We saw a document in which ATI clearly conceives the flaws in the R600 design and that the company is aware of its high power requirements, the thermal dissipation and the the lack of texture power in the current design.

The R650 is doing well and it should be ready in Q3, until then you will have to enjoy the R600XT or simply go for Nvidia. The R600 is the biggest and hottest chip so far and ATI can thank its 512 bit memory controller, the many Shader units and the stream processors for that.

This was simply too much for 80 nanometres, but the 65 nanometre R650 should solve most of these problems.
