I certainly hope it doesn’t as an overclocked RD with a R sounds awesome to me. Give us your thoughts on the upcoming addition to DFI’s lineup in our forums.

E-mail me when people reply to my comments Comment sorting order: I’m waiting for the R anyway, so hopefully by then the stability and BIOS options of the board will have improved. I am still very excited about this board.

Though little has been known up til now about the features, DFI has been pretty adamant that it would be rd060. If you want something to look at before then, DailyTech has a great picture of the board with the RD heatsink removed.

The original reference board that we looked at was code named Stingray and to be quite honest, performance was not up to par at that time even though the feature list was class leading.

That is one big chip. No Interruptions Day Shortbread. We first looked at an early beta of this motherboard a few months ago and recognized it had potential – real potential – to compete with the X chipset and do so at a lower price point.


Even if basic design wasn’t such a problem, the business climate itself fought against ATI. Threaded, reverse-chronological Comment threads started rd060 appear at the top.

That may be a little while, since only boards are expected to be finished before Christmas. Newest comments shown first. Flat, reverse-chronological No threading.

However, the merger between AMD and ATI threw a kink into any plans that motherboard manufacturers might have had for this chipset. Asus Apple Sony Google Valve. About us Privacy policy Mailing list Mobile. TweakTown managed to get its sample up to a stable front-side bus speed of MHz—an effective 1,MHz if one takes into account the FSB’s quad-pumped properties.

The chipset was to offer a atii of new features never really seen before, but many expected boards would never get to market. This discussion is now closed. We look to answer this question with today’s performance preview and will provide additional information in an in-depth review of this ballyhooed we are guilty of this yet mysterious chipset and motherboard. I’m very curious to see if the R in crossfire will need more then the x8 pcie bandwith.

This feature was promised to us with NVIDIA’s most recent chipset, though it hasn’t entirely delivered as planned on that front the only runs semi- asynchronously. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. ATI was able to overcome most of the early performance concerns that centered on memory rd6000 performance and had a revised version of the chipset ready for use last spring. At that speed, the 1.

DFI makes ATI RD board |

Oldest comments shown first, bulletin-board style. The main issue that we found with Stingray was its DDR2 memory performance. This early glimpse certainly makes the RD look tantalizing, but we’ll have to see how final retail boards outfitted with the chipset perform.

ATI’s RD600 chipset tested, overclocked

The chipset is quite a handsome overclocker, too. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! Written by Brett Thomas. Steam ato the best-selling games of
