Radeon HD 2900 Pro in the works
The $200 solution?
According to a post on ChileHardware, AMD is working on a Radeon HD 2900 Pro card and the reason behind this is that the model was mentioned in a recent Beta driver.
However, this isn't the RV670, as it's using the R600 GPU, although we'd expect that AMD has done some modifications to it, so it won't compete with the HD 2900 XT.
The driver string doesn't reveal too much information - "ATI Radeon HD 2900 PRO" = ati2mtag_R600, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9403
ChileHardware also claims that this new card should cost around US$200, which seems a little bit too cheap to us, but with AMD's current pricing, you'll never know, but we'd guess it'll be closer to $249.
