Message Text: If you can't wait next week's official release, download the manual of ATI's X1900 here.

The http://www.dailytech.com website has provided the manual of ATI's next graphics cards, the Radeon X1900 series.

ATI will launch two versions of the Radeon X1900; the Radeon X1900XT and the Radeon X1900XTX. The X1900XTX is the same card as the X1900XT, but with slightly higher clock speeds. ATI also plans to release the Radeon X1900 CF (CrossFire). This card has the same core clocks as the X1900XT, but replaces some of the outputs with a VHDCI connector for CrossFire support.

According to the website, the XT and XTX are clocked at 625MHz and 650MHz, respectively, with their DDR memory buffers set to run at 1.45GHz and 1.55GHz, respectively. Both chips support up to 512MB of GDDR 3.

The 90nm R580 core has 48 pixel shaders.
