ATi R600 A15 Silicon Hit 1GHz?

Looking at this
news post
in our forum, there is a rumor coming out from the websites in
China currently that AMD is planning to launch R600 on 8th or 9th March and be
officially named as Radeon X2K series. The mass production silicon is expected
to be still at A12 for the R600 cards at launch.

It seems like ATi has successfully taped out a A15 silicon that is able to
work at 1GHz probably we can hope to see another series of R600 cards with
higher working clocks in the near future. The article suggests ATi’s next
generation R680 is scheduled for Q3 launch but suggested that NVIDIA will have
G81 and the next gen. GPU ready to compete.

According to our sources but still a rumor revealed R600 as X2800 series.
There are 2 variants for XTX; 1GB and 512MB. X2800XTX runs at 750MHz core,
2.2GHz memory, 512-bit memory interface and GDDR4 while XT runs at 600MHz core,
1.8GHz memory, 512-bit memory interface and GDDR3.
