AMD has now officially announced the Radeon HD 2000 "R600" generation of graphics cards (also the first to be branded AMD instead of ATI). Two press releases were issued about these new mobile and desktop GPUs, which can be read here and here. There is also a new product page for the ATI HD 2000 Graphics Family. The Phoronix technical preview (with Linux words) on the HD 2000 family can be read in our AMD Radeon HD 2900XT Preview.
