    Default ATI Multi Video Processing Unit details emerge

    More details on ATI's plan to use multiple video cards to boost performance. HEXUS has the scoop. Along the same lines CoolTechZone has a bit more on the availability of cards based on R520 chip.

    "The system will run with a master card and slave card. The slave card can be ANY ATI card on the market, which is just about as cool as absolute zero, but (and it's a big BUT).. the master card, which will control the frame buffer, has to support MVP. The ATI solution runs on a tiled based approach - which has a minimum checkerboard size of 32 pixels square."

    More from HEXUS

    "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."
