According to executives of ATI Technologies, the R520, R520 GL, RV515 are to be made using 90nm process technology at TSMC. The company said during the most-recent conference call that it did not expect to ship its new generation product family for revenue before August, 2005. Given that the chips were production ready by the 25th of July, 2005, when the PCI-SIG Integrators List was last updated, graphics cards makers may receive final VPUs sometime in August. Sources close to add-in-board partners of ATI confirmed this information earlier to X-bit labs.

Looks like we have a few months to wait.

Ya, if you are looking for the best card out right now then go for the 7800.

From previous discussion here, it seems like the R520 may be more powerful than than the 7800 series.

That's exactly what I was thinking and that's why I'm waiting to upgrade my video card(s).
