No ATI Radeon Ultra

ATI will not manufacture a Radeon MAXX with two chipsets. The card will not exist because there are problems with the production of a chip that addresses the graphics chips synchronously. By the time this chip is ready, the Radeon2 will already be presented.

Instead of a version with 2 chips, there will be a Radeon Ultra based on the conventional Radeon graphics chip, but with 240 MHz instead of the previous one 183 MHz is clocked. If the RAM clock of the Radeon Ultra runs synchronously with the memory clock, the Radeon Ultra would have to have a DDR RAM clock of 480 MHz and thus 4 nanoseconds fast RAM, which is extremely expensive. The Radeon Ultra will probably be available for purchase in December, the price is still unclear, but should be around 1200 DM.
