ATI's soon to be launched Radeon X1900GT is already for sale at online retailers in the US.
We did a search for X1900GT
on Shopping.com's US portal
, and found the card in stock at Dell
) and also AxionTech.com
. Dell Small Business
lists the card at just under $370, while AxionTech is listing the card at $379.
Taking those prices as an indication, it should mean that the X1900GT will sell for around £250 including VAT in the UK - that fits right in line with the price of NVIDIA's GeForce 7900 GT
AxionTech go as far as listing the specifications of the new part. The Radeon X1900GT is - not surprisingly - based on a cut-down version of ATI's high-end R580 chip.
It comes with 36 pixel shader processors, 8 vertex shaders and 256MB of GDDR3. The retailer also listed the Radeon X1900GT's clock speeds, too - it'll be clocked at 575/1200MHz.
This looks like ATI's replacement for the now end-of-life Radeon X1800XT
. Launch date is not confirmed at the time of publication, but we suspect that it isn't far away if cards are already for sale.
