ATI's R520 to be available in August?

Filed under
Hardware

ATI expects to begin mass shipments of its 90nm R520, R530 and RV515 chips in the middle of the third quarter. ATI Taiwan claims that unspecified 90nm manufacturing issues will soon be solved.

The upcoming launch of ATI's three 90nm graphics chips is expected to boost overall 90nm output from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), industry sources suggested. Although less than 4% of TSMC's sales came from 90nm technology in the second quarter of 2005, the percentage should grow to more than 10% by the fourth quarter, according to Rick Tsai, CEO of TSMC.

By early 2006 the company also plans the launch of a new flagship, code-named R580. This chip will be taped-out soon.
