CES 2005 X800XL, X800 and X850 under the hummer...

Yesterday at this show we managed to talk to our good friend, ATI CEO Dave Orton, and he told us that ATI has shipped quite a few R430 chips already. Senior VP Rick Bergman confirmed the claims and said that the company is doing fine in providing both R430 and R480 chips to its customers.

This finally means that ATI might start shipping its products after the announcement as X800XL, X800 and X850XT PE cards should be ready shortly. Taiwanese companies here said that for a change they can get those chips even now and that they are doing the last preparations before they launch the cards in retail. Their samples are either ready or will be shipped out very soon.

We were told that Dell is supposed to have X850XT PE already and when we checked its site we found is here, so Dell indeed has these cards listed. They are listed as 256MB PCI Express™ x16 (DVI/VGA/TV-out) ATI Radeon™ X850 XT PE. When you choose X850 XT PE in selected configuration Dell claims to deliver your system in less than a week, on January 13th.

Retail cards should be here very soon and even senior ATI folk said that its partners have the chip and are making the last moves before the firm ships the cards to retail.

I believe that ATI did learn something from 2004 and that it won't ship ghost products anymore.
