ATi X800 GTO & GTO² On Sep 16

ATi plans to launch X800 GTO equipped with 12 pipelines and clocked at 400MHz on Sept 16 to fight against GeForce 6800XT. There are two versions of the card; 128MB DDR1 running at 350Mhz and 256MB GDDR3 running at 490Mhz. The cores used on the X800 GTO are either R420 for the AGP or R423/480 for the PCI-E. To make the matter more interesting or rather confusing, there seems to be another higher end version known as X800 GTO² that has 16 pipelines using R480 core slated to be launched at the same time.
