    the Rv535 is also being made on an 80nm process Reply

    maybe ATI has an X1700 planned to combat an eventual GeForce 7600 since im sure nVidia will try to one up them Reply

    RV360 was a unique 130nm low-k black diamond process. That's why it was clocked at 500mhz stock so long ago. Reply

    TSMC is now shuttling the 65nm for qualification now and from what I heard the first batch commercial product is expected by end of next year, coincidentally aligned with Vista launch.

    All process after 90nm node is Low-k. A next gen material change to extreme low-k (ELK) is initially schedule on 65nm but not expected until the process change to 45nm because there are some issues in dicing and packaging.

    Don't you mean R420??? Reply

    I believe he means RV410 (X700), or R430 (X800) both these products are based on the 0.11 micron process. This is hardly unusual in the graphics industry, they have these half nodes in between the proper nodes. The R420 is a 0.13 micron low-k product.

    For instance there were the 0.22 micron process, and 0.15 micron process.

    NV10 Geforce 256 used the 0.22 micron process.

    R300 (9700/9500), R350 (9800), NV20 (GF3/TI), NV25 (GF4TI), used the 0.15 micron process.

    And the RV350 (9600/Pro/XT) was 0,11u also. Reply

    the Rv350 was 130nm(the 9600XT was the Rv360 anyways)

    its the Rv370(X300, X550) that used 110nm aswell as the G70
