    DESPITE ALL that has been glittering like gold or pyrites before, it transpires that ATI flagship R520 cunningly nicknamed "Fudo" will feature only sixteen pipelines. The sources close to the company earlier indicated that the R520 might have even more pipes but this won't be the case. The R580 will end up with more pipes but R520 has its higher clock to fight Nvidia's counterpart.

    i don't believe it. Only because it's from the inquirer. However, i do not doubt that ATI could possibly release a low end fudos card w/ 16pipes like nVidia did w/the 7800GT.

    Still... If it's true... And the 7800GT still has 20 pipes!

    yea, it will be like the x800pro vs. 6800GT all over again if it holds true. For the slot right below "top dawg"

    seems like the next gen ATi's will be pretty much in the same spot were the fx5xxx series was....

    I will wait to see if this pans out. I can't beleive ATI would make a mistake (IMO) like this.
