They have decided its not going to have 32 pipes, but only 16. They couldn't get consistent yields at 32 pipes.

if you look at the table in the article it says the XT version of R520 will have 32 pipes. I don't know what to think with how info changes every other second, but i hope its more that 16.

Hmmm, maybe they got the 32 pipes working after all. The thing they don't go into though is the price. They say 599, but is that for the LE, XL, or XT?

The XT with 32 pipes could be a hell of a card, but we'll see, earlier reports said they were having serious problems getting the 32 pipes to work.

yeah i'm hoping for 32 pipes, but i'm not holding my breath. I'm thinking ATI is going to have the XT at $599 then the XL and LE priced lower. As usual i don't know anything for real though
