R700 is a low, mid and high-end chip

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Mini cores


There won't be any RV chips anymore, as the entire R7x0 generation is now based on the R700 mini core.
 It is quite simple, a single core on a single die is low-end, two cores on a single die is mid-range, while four or more cores on a single die is high-end.  

ATI will have to put these R700 cores together and we still don't know how they are going to make the chips "talk" to each other; but it will use the same architecture chip but multiplied in the mid and high-end market.  

Sounds interesting doesn't it ? It also explains why ATI is pushing so hard for a Quad CrossfireX driver.
