INQ revealed that R520 core clock will be much higher than 600MHz+ and of
course dual slot cooling solution is needed. Some of the cards have left ATI’s
headquarters but R520 clock speeds are not settled as it’s a matter of yields.
ATI will be getting in for a hard launch sometime in September time, so it has
to have the real hardware as soon as it launches. ATI might do XT PE this time
again.

Ed : We saw the R520 card back in Computex along with R530 and RV515.
The R520 card looks pretty much like a X850XT PE which is a dual slot solution
but has a mosfet sink like the NVIDIA’s and the PWM area is improved. The copper
heatsink on the GPU is bigger if i can still remember correctly and there is a
HDTV connector on the card too. As for R530 and RV515, they look pretty much
like the current X700 and X300 cards.
