ATI unveils RADEONâ„¢ 8500LE graphics chip, cost-effective, industry-leading technology


Designed and marketed solely to OEM, ODM and AIB customers and based on award-winning, innovative technology




MARKHAM, Ontario –

ATI Technologies Inc. (TSE:ATY, NASDAQ:ATYT), a world leader in the supply of graphics, video and multimedia solutions, today introduced the RADEON™ 8500LE graphics processor, the latest addition to RADEON™, the world’s most powerful and innovative family of graphics chip and board technologies.


Based on the award-winning RADEON 8500 chip architecture, the RADEON 8500LE affords customers all of the industry-leading features of the world’s fastest and most technologically advanced graphics chip at a cost that is extremely appealing to a broader group of customers and at a performance level (250 MHz (megahertz) core clock speed compared to the RADEON 8500’s 275 MHz core clock speed) that would satisfy even the most power-hungry game or application. While ATI is marketing the RADEON 8500 through retail outlets worldwide, it is not selling the RADEON 8500LE through retail under the ATI brand name. ATI will only distribute the RADEON 8500LE to OEMs, ODMs and AIBs, who will then market the technology under their own brand names, selling it to systems integrators, distributors and retailers.


Has anybody heard what this card is going to go for? If it does in fact have most of the features but cheaper in price than the regular 8500 and ATI does fix the driver problems, this could be a big seller...



Thanks,


Ron
