ATi RV770 – Architecture Overview
Rage3D has published an article about the architecture of the RV770, the latest GPU from ATI.

As an opener to our launch day coverage, we’ll be taking a plunge into the RV770 and seeing what what is new, what has changed, what stays the same (quickie note: not much) and how it all fits together. We’ll be following pretty much the same structure that Scott Hartog, chief architect for the RV770 series, used in his presentation of the architecture, as it nicely flows from one aspect of the new chip to another, using Richard Huddy’s R600 architecture overview for comparisons and underlining the differences between chips. We’ll also check and see if we can actually achieve the theoretical numbers using a number of synthetic tests … don’t worry, the whole gaming enchilada will soon follow, we haven’t lost our focus.
