960 SP-laden RV870 in the Works, and more
Sources at TSMC told Hardspell that the next graphics processor (GPU) by ATI/AMD, the RV870 in the works have specifications such as:
* 40nm or 45nm fab process
* 140 sq. mm die size
* 192 ALUs, 960 stream processors
* 256-bit GDDR5 memory controller
It is believed that this GPU could perform 1.2 times better than RV770, purely based on the paper-specs.
Another interesting news is that R800, unlike its predecessors the R700 and R680, might not be a dual-GPU card but the world's first dual-core GPU.
