So remember that laptop thatwith the ATI Radeon X2300 graphics chip? Sounds to us like Asus just blew a nondisclosure agreement on AMD/ATI's next-generation graphics chip.
It's been common knowledge for awhile that ATI's next-generation, DirectX 10-compatible graphics chip, code-named "R600," is in the works. It's supposed to be the direct competitor to Nvidia's already-released
Adding fuel to our speculative fire, if you go to the link of the original Asus announcement, you'll find that it's "undergoing maintainance" at the moment. We suppose that could be the Digg effect, as the story was linked from Digg earlier. We think it's more entertaining to imagine that instead the PR department at Asus received a nasty phone call from AMD.
