ATi R520 Has 700Mhz+ 16 Pipes Core?

ATI wants the R520 to clock at 700 MHz clock or even higher but it’s still undecided as it’s too early to decide on the final number. ATi still has some time so it won’t release those chips in August – it aims to introduce and ship the cards toward the very end of Q3. Some chips will work at even higher frequencies, much more than 700 MHz. R520 might actually have only sixteen fragment pipelines but will be able to fight Nvidia with its ultra higher clock but this is something that we cannot confirm at this stage.
