Wow, considering if it's accurate or not, they're even going for an HD5990? Well, I guess 28nm will open up the doors quite wide. Good times if true!

5830 as a 384-bit bus?!?! Would be sweet if that is the case.

There's not a chance in hell that will happen.

Great, now we're hearing its gonna be as late as the 16th....
Nothing official from ati yet due to their policy on 'not discussing products yet to be released.' However, any insight from sources would be good.

I've heard from someone I know who works at ATI that one of the cards upcoming is going to be capable of running 6 monitors in eyefinity at once... would make for some killer set ups...

It's been known for months already that at some point in the future ATI will release a 6-way Eyefinity card with 6 DisplayPort outputs.

Heres some new information
Source

Ati Radeon 5830 is going to launch on Feb 25th. NDA expires at 9pm PST or midnight EST with its NDA lift.
Samples should be in the hands of the reviewers shortly, if not already.

Why the wait? Chinese new year... that and rumored issues with the reference boards, but the latter was not confirmed.

There are no reference boards. ATI is seeding reviewers with Frankenstein cards that ARE NOT representative of what you will be able to buy at retail. With the HD 5830, ATI basically copped out and is allowing their board partners to design the cards without providing a reference design. This could lead to a huge difference in terms of component selection and quality when going from one manufacturer to the next.


Nonetheless, I am still excited or this card since some of the designs look downright great.

Is it true that MSI is going to be making a 5830 Lightening version similar to the rumored 5870 Lightening?
Excited to see what pricing strategies are going to be put in place, because there might be some VERY exciting cards coming out based on these 5830 chips.
