ATI R520 to Hit Retail Shelves in Q3

Filed under
Hardware

As we reported recently, ATI and NVIDIA may very well introduce their next generation of GPUs at Computex this year. Along with that, ATI may also unveil their Multi-VPU or "SLI" technology at the world's largest hardware tradeshow as well.

After some of our sources disclosed that information, we were immediately interested in product availability and pricing information on ATI's upcoming R520 based cards. A source close to ATI's board partners revealed that R520 based graphics adapters will start appearing on shelves sometime in Q3 or between July - September timeframe. This would mean that if ATI introduces their R520 at Computex, which will take place in Taipei, Taiwan from May 31st - June 4th, there's a minimum of one-month delay before actual products appear on retail shelves.

  • Researchers Create First Firmware Worm That Attacks Macs
    The common wisdom when it comes to PCs and Apple computers is that the latter are much more secure. Particularly when it comes to firmware, people have assumed that Apple systems are locked down in ways that PCs aren’t. It turns out this isn’t true. Two researchers have found that several known vulnerabilities affecting the firmware of all the top PC makers can also hit the firmware of MACs. What’s more, the researchers have designed a proof-of-concept worm for the first time that would allow a firmware attack to spread automatically from MacBook to MacBook, without the need for them to be networked.
